30 Day Wife Encouragement Challenge: Day 19

Simply, let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes.’ Matthew 5:37 (NIV)

Today’s challenge is to say “yes” to your wife more times than you say “no.”

It is easy to get bogged down in the “I don’t want to’s” of life. With so many demands at work, in committees, and even at church, it is easy to think when you get home that “this is my time to do what I want.”

Has your wife been asking you take a walk or go for a bike ride? Say “yes.”

Has she been asking you to fix that leaky faucet? Say “yes.”

Does she want you to go with her to meet the new neighbors? Say “yes.”

Is she waiting for you to tell her if you will go to the office party next week? Say “yes.”
Does she want a new car? Well, you’ll have to decide for yourself on that one (and see Day 22).

What simple thing(s) has your wife asked you to do but you have denied her because “it’s my time to do what I want”?

Yours for the celebration of marriage,
