Gift Wrap Respect for Your Husband


Image from Twig and Thistle

"let the wife see that she respects her husband." Ephesians 5:33

What about giving our husband the gift of respect?  There are different ways in which we could communicate respect for our husband and in doing so we obey God who commands us to do so. Today, however, I want to focus on one specific area in which I have seen so many women lacking a respectful attitude towards their husband: the coffee table.

It seems the natural thing to do, girl friends around the coffee table chatting about the kids, shoes, laundry that needs to be fold, books, nails... and all the shortcomings of their husbands. All these ladies are friends from Church.  Why no one seems to bother?

Dear sisters, we must learn that we are called to be respectful with our husband. We must see that we honor him in his presence and in his absence; in front of our children, parents and friends as well as in our room when the door is closed. This is pleasing to God; this is what God wants us to do; we cannot walk from coffee table to coffee table sharing the weaknesses of our husband.

Isn't this grace? Covering his shortcoming with love? Isn't this the warmest hug we could give him? Isn't this love making, too?

Don't fall in the game, run away from those "friends" whose greatest joy seems to be exposing their husbands in public, even behind the "spiritual" scheme of a "petition of prayer".

O that we may learn to love our husband passionately with our words, in private and in public;  that we may find it a joy to give him respect and honor every day.

May the words of our mouth be always pleasing to our Father in Heaven; may our words love passionately.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”
