While we are not to live our lives to please man, it is possible for a righteous man to have favour with both God & man. This is something I desire for my own husband.
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. Luke 2:52
And Jesus is our supreme example!
For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12
1-My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2- For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3- Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4- So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:1-4
Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. Proverbs 13:15
This delicate balance is only achieved in the life of our man when he heeds and obeys the Word… when he binds mercy to his heart and ties truth into his heart!
Let us pray for our husbands to seek mercy and truth
and gain the balance of favour with God and man!
