Love and R-E-S-P-E-C-T

  Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Women desperately need love. It’s the way God designed us to be. If you notice though, the Bible doesn’t say husbands love your wives when she’s sweet, when she cooks, when she has a thankful attitude. No, it’s says, husbands love your wives, period. The love it speaks of is unconditional.

In the same manner, men desire respect. Believe it or not, our husbands are starving for admiration and to be honored, whether they deserve it or not.

Now, here comes my question; when was the last time you let him know how much you appreciate him? I encourage you to sit down and think of a few things you admire about him. Then when your husband is relaxed and not distracted mention one or two to him.

Make a decision tonight to stop the crazy marriage cycle of frustration, “he’s not loving me so I’m not showing him the respect he needs.” Instead, let your words start a cycle of love and respect!
