10-Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; 11- Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Romans 12:10,11
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 1 Timothy 5:8
I do not know of many men who do not want to take care of their families [but I do know of some]. We need to pray for this heart in our man. We should pray for specific character qualities to be cultivated: of persistence, decisiveness, integrity and strength of morality, among others.
And as the helpmeet, it can help when we take the time to notice and praise those sincere efforts that often speak his love to us!
Let us pray for our husband to be a hard worker, providing for his family and growing in godly character!
