Titus 2 Tuesday

Respecting Our Husbands

Our husband's greatest Love need is to be respected for who he is and what he does!

Ephesians 5:33 says:
Nevertheless let each individual among you also love his Own wife even as himself; and let the wife see to it that she respects her husband.

Webster's Dictionary definition: RESPECT
To show honor or esteem for; to hold a high regard; to show consideration for; to consider or treat with deference (yielding in opinion, judgement or wishes, courteous) or dutiful regard avoid intruding or interfering with...That's a thought!

Ephesians 5:33b (AMPLIFIED)
Let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband, that she notices him, prefers him, venerate and esteems him, and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves him, and admires him exceedingly. 

Venerates = worship

This command involves action on our part.  After you read this, take a moment to list 5 things that will show respect to your husband and pray that the Holy Spirit will help you accomplish these things.






Have a Blessed Day :)

This is a great post. I don't always think before I speak. My husband is sometimes at the receiving end of my careless words, which I know is disrespectful. This is something I need to work on.
