…so that he shall have no need of spoil.

Proverbs 31:11b

The term spoil usually carries a negative connotation. There are many ways to describe it, but I love concise definitions. Spoil: an excessive gain at the expense of another [most commonly used in reference to war].   *Are we at war with our husband? I certainly hope not!* {But we are at war FOR our husbands!}

If his heart is safely trusting in me then he can be content with the life we have -and not ‘need spoil’ from ‘out there’–wherever that is. Now, I realize that his contentment truly lies in his own relationship with the Lord, but much of how a man views his life rests in his wife. The more I am the wife God wants me to be – the woman He created me to be – the more my husband can be the man God created him to be. 

{it is CAUSE and EFFECT}
