Practice Positive Communication
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
In this verse, we discover a powerful reality for marriage. We have a powerful ability to build our spouse up simply by the words that come out of our mouth. But that truth is that it’s not only our ability, it’s also our responsibility.
Husbands, compliments and praises from you will build your wife’s self-esteem and energize her spirit.
Wives, you can boost your husband’s confidence by affirming him and giving him recognition. This is how God wants us to communicate with one another.
Today, focus on the part of the verse that says, “…according to their needs.” That means we have to discern situations and lean how to respond. Being a good communicator, like anything else in marriage, takes work. Practice positive communication today by building up your spouse with sincere words of praise and affirmation. Not only will they benefit, but you will too!
