I was reading Ephesians chapter five in the Amplified Bible, one day last week and came across the scriptures about wives relationship to husbands.
Verse twenty-two wasn’t to much different than what I’ve heard before.
22 Wives, be subject (be submissive and adapt yourselves) to your own husbands as [a service] to the Lord. (AMPC)
33 However, let each man of you [without exception] love his wife as [being in a sense] his very own self; and let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband [that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly].(AMPC)
- notice him
- regard him
- honor him
- prefer him
- venerates, which means regard with great respect, revere
- esteems, which means respect, admire, value, regard
- defers to him
- praises him
- loves him
- admires him exceedingly
I’m challenging myself to use this list as a daily reminder. I think I will note an instance where I did one of these, either journaling or in my bullet journal.
I hope this scripture helps deepen your relationship with your hubby.
Until next time, God bless,
