Be an encourager; the world has plenty of critics already.
Choose to be your spouse’s biggest encourager; not his/her biggest critic. Choose to be the person who wipes away their tears; not the one who causes them. Choose to become a cheerleader for your spouse’s strengths instead of always pointing out his/her weaknesses. Encouragement is a simple-but-powerful tool to bring fuel to your marriage and joy to your spouse.
“Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” Proverbs 12:25 (NLT)
Question for reflection: Through both my words and my actions, how can I be a better encourager to my spouse?
