My husband has never asked me to kneel down for him once, I chose to do that willingly whenever he buys anything for me or I want to show gratitude.
He doesn't demand for respect. I naturally respect him from the bottom of my heart. His actions, the words that come out of his mouth, his character, godly attitutide, purity of heart, down to earth honesty, high sense of responsibility, generousity, maturity, gentleness, humilty and servanthood naturallycommands my respect.
He is my father, my role model, my teacher, my guide. The man I look up to and wants to emulate in attitude and character. A great man of honour and dignity.
When men start demanding respect from their wives, something is wrong. In all honesty, you've lost it and you really don't deserve it. If you deserve that respect, you don't need to ask for it, it will be willingly given to you.
Character is what make us respect our husbands. It is not the shouting, beating, screaming, abuse, starvation and rape, it is character!
If you want respect, earn it! Be a man of your words, be a man of integrity! Stop telling lies, stop cheating, stop double-dating, stop flirting, smoking and drinking! Be worthy of emulation! Go out and work with your 2 hands instead of watching football from morning till night! Pay your bills, pay the children 's school fees on time. Assist your wife with chores when she's tired. Pray for her always! Be a good role model to her! Never be caught dead doing the things you don't want her to do! Be a leader, be a role model, be a man of character, virtues and integrity.
When you love your wife like Christ loves the church and consistently pray for her, you don't need to ask for respect, she will naturally,willingly and lovingly give it to you because you surely deserve it!
May the Lord help you to be the best husband to your wife!
Thanks for reading. God bless you. Cheers!
