SUPPORTING YOUR SPOUSE

One way to be an encouragement to your spouse is to be a supportive spouse in action and in attitude.

To be supportive means to give help or assistance or to hold something or someone up.

"And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8

This can be a rewarding role. Although dictionary definition is quite clear and for most couples the most important aspect of being supportive is being a loving spouse no matter what.

When defining supportive you find the phrases like;

"Providing for"

"Strengthening"

"Bearing the weight"

"keeping from falling, sinking or slipping"

That's quite a responsibility for anyone to take on and it grows greater when a spouse is weighed down by problems or is coping with feelings of loss, disappointment and fear.

So, to be a supportive spouse one will need to do certain things like:
