“She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.”
 Proverbs 31:12

This verse is in reference to the way we treat our husbands on a daily basis.

What is Good? By definition…

  • that which is morally right; righteousness
  • benefit or advantage to someone or something

How do we DO GOOD and NOT EVIL to our husbands?


  • Being kind to him… even if he seems cross with you
  • Encouraging him in his strengths… not pointing out his shortcomings
  • Smiling at him and being friendly towards him… not cold and distant
  • Praying for him daily… not talking badly about him to others 
  • Seeking to please him… not seeking your way all the time
  • Finding ways to help him… not nagging him about all that he needs to do for you 
  • Making meals or lunches for him… not forgetting to feed your man
  • Making the home a haven of rest when he returns home from work… not a messy, loud home filled with chaos
  • Spending money wisely… not impulsively or wastefully 
  • Teaching the children to honor him by our actions… not talking down at him or questioning him in front of the children
  • Planning ahead… not springing things upon him at the last minute
  • Being his biggest fan… not his biggest critic
  • Appreciating the things he does for you… not disregarding his efforts
  • Allowing him the grace to grow… not forcing him to change for you
  • Being patient with him… not placing unreasonable expectations on him
  • Being trustworthy… not sharing his secrets or failings with others
  • Being willingly affectionate to him (intimacy)… not withholding
