. . . let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Children, . . .“Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),
Ephesians 5:33 – 6:2
This article, Woman Realizes She’s Been Accidentally Abusing Her Husband | The Federalist Papers really was convicting to me. I am guilty of majoring on the few things that my husband doesn’t do ‘my way’ instead of praising the plethora of good things he does. I am so sorry, Billy!!
“The bottom line in all this is that I chose this man as my partner. He’s not my servant. He’s not my employee. He’s not my child. I didn’t think he was stupid when I married him – otherwise I wouldn’t have. He doesn’t need to be reprimanded by me because I don’t like the way he does some things.”
Please read the article and then take it a step further to realize the way we treat our husband will affect the way our children treat their father!!! How will they learn to respect their dad if they see us disrespecting him?
Ephesians 5:33 tells us to respect our husband and then the next chapter tells the children to honor their parents so they may receive the promise — (Honor your father and your mother . . . that it may go well with you . . .Deuteronomy 5:16) We have to set the example of honoring their dad that it may go well with them!!
Therefore, moms, one of the best things we can do for our children is to exemplify love and respect for their father!!!
