the meaning of the name Nabal is fool and he did many foolish things, as recorded in the Bible. We will however only focus on those foolish acts pertaining to his marriage. OPEN HEAVENS MARCH 2021 Monday March 8

Nabal always did things without carrying his wife along. A good husband will always be open with his wife. She should know what he is up to all the time. A man should never leave his wife in the dark.

In our Bible reading for today, Nabal got a request from David for food supplies and did not tell his wife who ordinarily should have been in charge of that. Even after he had responded, it was his servant who went to tell his wife Abigail. He clearly didn’t involve her in his affairs. Husband, ask your wife for advice every now and then. When she gives you advice, at least consider it. Indeed, if you always consider her advice, you will definitely adopt it from time to time. Even Nabal’s servant attested to the fact that Nabal never listened to advice.

Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him. 1 Samuel 25:17

Put your wife in charge of things or tasks she is particularly skilled or gifted in and don’t interfere except with her permission, after all, she is better at that thing than you are. if Nabal had put food affairs in the hands of his wife, when David sends him a message, he would have just referred the messenger to his wife and she would have handled it well. At the end of the day, Nabal would have gotten the praise.

When people are saying “Thank you” to me for the hospitality they receive at our programmes, many of them don’t know that I had no hand in it at all, it was all my wife. Even up to the feeding of the entire crowd at the Convention, it is her area of strength; why should I bother myself with it when I should be focusing on my own areas of strength Husbands, don’t be like Nabal. Listen to your wife’s advice, put her in charge of certain things for which she is better skilled than you. Wife, support your husband; pray for him, give him godly counsel, encourage him. A husband and his wife are a team; neither should ever work alone. OPEN HEAVENS MARCH 2021 Monday March 8
