“Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.” (Proverbs 31:23)
Did you know your husband craves respect the same way you crave love?
As you read about the wife of noble character famously described in Proverbs 31, there’s a little verse tucked away about her husband in verse 23. It says he is respected at the city gate where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
This one sentence description of the husband isn’t about his extraordinary wife making him feel loved. It’s about how she makes him feel respected. His wife adds to his reputation. He is known to have a good wife which speaks well of his choice of a bride and the state of his family. A good name is important to a man.
Whether it’s been a few months or decades since you said “I do,” you can continue to act respectfully to your Prince Charming. During your dating days, you probably spent a lot of time admiring and praising your beloved. You kissed with tenderness. You watched ball games together and went out often to have fun. You did your best to look good.
How can you keep saying “I do” respect you, day after day, year after year? Here are 10 small (but powerful) ways to keep showing love by showing respect.
