"Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease! For riches certainly make themselves wings." (Proverbs 23:4, 5b)
That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries." (Proverbs 8:21)
Money is the root of much marital discord. Ask yourself, "Am I being negative toward my husband in the area of finances?" Determine not to speak evil of your husband in this area. Discover ways to encourage and help him instead.
Does your husband handle finances wisely? Does he make good financial investments, based on biblical principles? Does he have a budget? Does he make wise decisions about purchases--checking many sources before he buys? Is he a good steward of his money before the Lord? Let him know how much you appreciate his strengths in financial matters.
If he is weak in this area, encourage any good decisions that he does make. Perhaps you can help him, if he's open to the idea, by organizing financial files or providing other practical assistance. Or, if he wants you to handle the finances, ask for his input before you make decisions that will affect him.
*Money and finances are areas that we struggle in often. However, Charlie always takes care of our family. He is becoming so much better at making decisions and putting them into practice. He is a very hard worker and very well liked at his job. He is reliable and trustworthy. It is so rewarding to listen to his coworkers and boss praise him to me. He also shows the love of Christ to his coworkers. He often is giving them things and doing things to help them out. It is easy to see God at work in our lives right now and I can honestly say, I feel a peace like I have never felt before. Thank you all for your blessed prayers.
