Reverence her husband~

God admonishes us ladies to see that we reverence our man.

“…and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” Eph. 5:33

Make a New Habit ~

Try to show your husband noticeable esteem at least three times a day. Plan small habits you can establish that will make it easier to remember, until giving him deference comes naturally.

Traits of a Good Help Meet ~

* She acknowledges the “good traits” in her man.
* She speaks of her husband with esteem.
* She defers to him.
* She never responds to him with scorn or ridicule.

Getting Serious with God ~

The word REVERENCE appears 13 times in God’s Word. Eight times it has to do with reverencing men. Look up and consider each of these uses of the word REVERENCE. As you read, you will understand from God’s Word what God requires of you and me in reverencing our husbands.

Make a list of ways you have not shown reverence toward your husband, and then make a list of things you are going to start doing to correct them.

Always keep in mind that, when you reverence your husband, you are reverencing God.

It is God’s will for you to do this service to your husband…..

My prayer for you this week is that you will be encouraged as you take this task seriously. The difference in a Christian housewife and a non Christian housewife is this area of reverence and deference.

Love to you all ~
