Oops! Ministering through mistakes

If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. (2 Corinthians 2:5-8 NIV)

Sometimes husbands make mistakes. As a wife, do you find yourself more of a critic than an encourager? No husband wants to disappoint his wife. Let the consequences of your husband’s mistakes be enough. Though at times the results may be aggravating or seemingly overwhelming be considerate of your role as a wife. Do as the scripture says “forgive and comfort”. Let your husband know that you love him despite his imperfection. Remember that God loves us despite ours. To do otherwise may be opening the door for Satan to overcome him.

Lord,

Help us to overcome our own disappointment. Remind us that everything that happens in our lives is something that you have allowed. Give us wisdom to know how to show our love and support to our husbands even during difficult times. Thank you for loving us through our imperfections. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen
