What does it look like?

April writing...

Saxony asked an awesome, thought provoking question on Facebook today.

What does it look like to respect your Husband?

Here's how I responded...

"I believe this is both a complex and simple answer. Here are my thoughts...Respect means to recognize the place of authority God has given your husband in the family. It means uplifting your husband, to his face, as well as to family and friends. You show respect by not seeking leadership or counsel from other persons, when you can talk to your ... Read MoreHusband. It means not fighting for leadership in the family. It's shown by not disregarding his words or feelings and by encouraging him. We can also show respect through our body language...alot can be said with an eye-roll or crossing of the arms.
Be patient, understanding and always communicate. An unspoken word roots bitterness in our hearts.

I would love to know what you think!!

I like your answer to this question, April. As a wife for 38 years, a mother of 2 and a grandmother of 3, I have nothing but respect for my husband! What does it look like? Supporting his decisions in the big and little things. Recognizing and praising his role in raising our sons, in going to work everyday to provide for our physical needs, and as the head of our home. Caring for everyday needs,(cooking, cleaning, laundry) out of love, shows respect. And, communication is key to mutual respect!
