Marriage~ Help Meet~ Reverence

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

Eph 5:33
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.
~ Make A New Habit
Try to show your husband noticeable esteem at least 3 times a day. Plan small habits you can establish that will make easier to remember, until giving him reverence comes naturally.
~Traits Of A Good Help Meet
1. She acknowledges the "good traits" in her man.
2. She speaks of her husband with esteem.
3. She defers to him.
4. She never responds to him with scorn or ridicule.
~Getting Serious With God
The word REVERENCE appears 13 times in God's Word. Eight occurrences have to do with reverencing men. Look up and consider each of theses uses of the word reverence. As you read, you will understand from God's Word what God requires of you in reverencing your husband. Make a list of ways you have not shown reverence to 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 .

Hmmm...food for thought! But I have to look up the actual meaning of the word, as I don't know the Maltese equivalent.
