Have you heard this joke?
The president is walking with his wife when they see one of her ex-boyfriends in a less than appealing occupation. The president says,”If you hadn’t married me, you might be married to that guy.” The first lady replies, “If I had married him, he’d be president.”
You’ve heard the saying, behind every man is a good woman, right? Do you believe that’s true? Do you believe that as a wife your called to stand by your husband and motivate him on to greatness? The bible says this about the Proverbs 31 Woman:
Believe in Him. As wives we have a huge influence over our husbands confidence level. We have to believe in them and be their biggest cheerleaders. If a man knows that his wife believes in him then he begins to feel that he can do anything! The opposite is also true, if a man thinks his wife doesn’t believe in him or respect him then his confidence level goes wayyy down. Believe in the amazing man of God that he is or will come to be!
Dream with Him. God put lots of talent and aspiration into our men and we need to let them be free to dream and really believe that they can fulfill those dreams without bringing them down. We need to give our men the freedom to dream about what they can accomplish with God’s help.
Respect Him. All men need and desire respect, especially from their wives. We need to respect their knowledge and abilities. If a man thinks his wife doesn’t respect him that’s like a wife feeling like his husband doesn’t love her. MEN NEED RESPECT!!
