February 19, 2022 – Do You Encourage Your Husband?
Sermon: 1571 – Maximum Mom
Pray Over This
“Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land.”
The woman described in Proverbs 31 is to her husband a helpmeet—a completer, an enhancer. This verse says her husband is known in the gates. The gates were the place of commerce in this day. This was like her husband being known in city hall or in the courthouse square. Her husband is a well-known citizen, but because God is extolling the wife here and not the husband, the implication is very clear that he is what he is because she is what she is. Likewise, I know I am what I am today, not only because of God, but because of my precious wife. I know that beyond any shadow of doubt. And that's what this verse is saying. Her husband is known in the gates. She is a woman who is behind her husband, encouraging her husband at every step.
Take time this week to show your appreciation to someone who is good at encouraging others.
