Day Eleven - 30-Day Husband Challenge
Day Eleven - "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord." Eph. 5:22
Women who are constantly negative toward their husbands - especially by speaking evil of them to others - show great disrespect. Determine not to do that today (or ever!).
This challenge to encourage is closely connected to submission.Men respond to women who respect them. What do you respect about your husband? Part of that respect includes submission to his authority. Let your husband know how respecting him makes it easier to submit to his leadership. Show your respect in public by listening to him and smiling at him when he speaks. Place your hand in his as you walk together.
If you feel there is nothing to respect, search harder ...nearly every man has some core characteristic that can be nurtured and respected. In any case, you must still cultivate a submissive spirit to his position of leadership..."as to the Lord." By Nancy Leigh DeMoss
I am slowly learning this concept. If you know me very well you know I don't put up with anything and I usually tell it to you what I think - no holding back. This sometimes gets me in trouble with others - especially my hubby ♥ Thru the wonder women bible study I learned that God likes you to hold your tongue and respect your spouse. It pleases HIM. so if nothing else do it to please God and you will be blessed. It may be hard at first, but trust me it gets easier ♥
