Respect your Husband...

I was so happy to see that I am not the only woman out there who beleives that the number one rule in any successful home/marriage is Respect. We need to stop demanding, asking, seeking, etc to GET respect - instead, give respect and in the long run, he will shower you with respect. I know, I know...but seriously, it is God's way and His way works!

I found this post Respect your Husband and she made a really good comment that I am posting if only for my own reminder: "You may be thinking that your husband has to earn your respect. His position as the man you chose to be your husband entitles him to that respect."

She's 100% right - no matter how they treat you, lovingly or horribly; no matter how much money the make, prince or pauper or somewhere in between; no matter if they are a dishwasher or a CEO or anything in between - you chose him, and more importantly, HE CHOSE YOU and that's all that our focus should be on: Submit as unto the Lord

Proverbs 14:1 The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

Ephesians 5:33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Just my take on things...
