Let’s get to work on how to respect your husband
In the last piece, we discussed how important it is for wives to get involved in building their homes. We have also discussed two ways in which wives can feed their husbands. If you are yet to read the full article, please go here. We shall continue to discuss the other two ways wives need to feed their husbands to build their homes.
Feed Him: Respect Your Husband
If you really want to get the best of your husband, you must learn to respect him. For husbands, respect is key. There is nothing you can do to alter this, that’s how men are created and made to function. If your husband has to be asking for respect from you or people can detect your lack of respect for him, it means three fire is on the mountain.
It is important to clarify that respect you give just because people are around is not respect. You must be able to respect him both outside and in your closet, if you intend to enjoy your husband irrespective of his education, size, financial capacity, exposure, etc. As long as you have decided to be married to him, you must respect him if you want the best.
For a man, respect is what triggers value for you from your husband. It also automatically place him in his God-given position of headship. Even if he is not buoyant enough to do this, the mere giving of respect from you creates a value system for you in your husband’s sphere. Don’t strive to be the head of the home, God has already given him that as a gift.
Feed His Ego
This is another important aspect where lots of wives usually miss it. As your husband rises in Business, Career, religious status, educational achievement, social status, etc. You must rise along in the way you treat and respect him. This is key to maximizing your husband’s potential in caring for you and the home.
A lot of home has been shattered because wives ridicule the husband either in secret or in public. If your husband has achieved a level of relevance in the world of men, you should treat him as such if you want to enjoy your home. He can’t be well respected in society and you treat him as if he is nothing. It is true you know his beginning because you moved into greatness together but that doesn’t change the fact that he is now in the position of greatness. Value his achievement.
Why do you think Sarah called Abraham her lord in the Bible? She understands the power of respecting her husband and feeding his ego. If you must make your home great, you cannot put these few words behind. Even if you have not started this before, start it now and be genuine with it. You will see the wonder it will do in your home. Start now!
