The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life… She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard…. She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night…She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant. Proverbs 31:11-12, 16, 24
One of the best and most bountiful blessings we can give our husbands is to do well with our finances. This is often one of the most common causes for marital troubles. If you haven’t had financial conflicts within your own marriage, consider yourself blessed indeed. And, if you haven’t, you surely know someone who has.
Our husbands are responsible to bear the weight of the financial burden for our families. If we understand this, we can do a lot to lighten his load! By making an investment with your time in the area of financial stewardship, you can reap bountiful blessings spiritually and financially as you seek to manage your money well.
I hope to challenge and help you look for creative ways to come alongside your husband and bless his hard work in caring for you and your family. You will likely have your husband rise up and call you blessed by being financially responsible, even more frugal than you are now, keeping a budget, looking at your personal spending habits, and evaluating what life changes can be made to experience more financial peace in your home.
What a wonderful way to become a more excellent wife!
Let us all strive toward heaping bountiful blessings on your husband through the area of good financial stewardship!
