Today’s Readings: Deut 13:1‐15:23, Luke 8:40‐9:6, Ps 71:1‐24, Prov 12:5‐7
Proverbs 12:4 An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
Apply #1: Rebecca is my excellent crown.
- She is wise –Rebecca sees the world like God does. I trust her judgment.
- She is relaxed – Rebecca does not get over worried about situations and she helps me to rest.
- She is gentle – Rebecca has an uncanny ability to use the least force necessary to direct those around her with grace.
Apply #2: How do I bring shame to my spouse? How do I need to grow as a husband?
If you are married, I want to encourage you to focus on the beauty in your crown. If you are not married, pray for your future crown. Ask God how he wants to do to prepare you to bring your spouse glory and not shame.
