Marriage~ Did You Know?

Men respond most dramatically to acts of respect. Interestingly, in light of all theses differences, God's primary command to husbands is to love , or cherish his wife, while wives are exhorted first and foremost to reverence, or respect, her husband. (Ephesians 5:25,33)

Respect is man's deepest and most basic desire in marriage. It energizes his dreams and gives meaning to his heart. Respect inspires a husband to love and cherish his wife in the way she desires. There is no better way for a wife to demonstrate respect for her husband than to wholeheartedly and sacrificially submit herself to him. (Ephesians 5:22-24)

Lord, I am so weak in this area, you have been so patient with me. I know your word has a purpose in our lives. I want my marriage to honor you. Help me to be a better wife today and fully submit to my husband. Have thine own way Lord.
