As a woman, we long for love and security, but more than anything else, a man longs for RESPECT AND HONOR from his wife. It is a God-given instinct that we as wives need to understand. He will never be truly happy until he has it, but when he does, look out world! He will feel that he can face anything.
I'm sure not preaching to you, because I fail on this one, too. We can passionately love our husband, yet not show the respect and honor he needs. The Amplified Version of Ephesians 5:33 explains it very clearly, “Let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband (that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly).” What a challenge.
Honor your husband with your words and the way you speak to him. Honor him with the way you look at him. Honor him for this is what you are meant to do.
Does your husband sit at the head of the table? Does he have his special chair? We show our honor in little practical things, too.
Be blessed in your home today,
