Honoring Your Wife...


One simple way to honor your wife is by regularly showing that you appreciate her.  Specific words of praise always score major points.  Flattery is insincere or excessive praise.  It's rooted in motives of self-interest; it implies you want something from her.  True praise, on the other hand, focuses more on character qualities and is not self-serving.
