Marriage Moday - Rolling Your Eyes Is Not Respect

'"However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."  Ephesians 5:33 
Do you respect your husband?  You probably said yes, so now, let me ask you these questions:

Do you roll your eyes when he says something you don't like?

Do you criticize what he does?

Do you make fun of his choices?

Do you belittle him, especially in front of others?

Do you let him lead?

Do you complain about him to others?

God tells us in the Word that we are to respect our man, but doing these things does not show respect.  We ask, no mostly we demand, that our husbands respect us, yet our we showing them proper respect?  Practice respecting your husband daily, soon it will come more natural to do so.

Let's be women who honor God by respecting our husbands.

Sweet Blessings~  


  1. Jenifer, the control freak in me is slowly learning that our husbands desire to lead...even if they don't verbalize it. I've worked on stepping back and allowing him to have a front row seat in the decision making process. Thanks again for the reminder.

  2. Jenifer, you really caught me off guard wih the title of your blog this morning. Or Rather God gave you the right title. When I saw the title I had to laugh out loud because I knew that God was talking straight to me.

    I had to say "Alright God I understand and get it" Then had to walk away from my computer for a minute before reading farther.

    Because this "rolling the eyes at my hubby" is something God has been working on me with. I am doing a bible study on marriage now and am adding this ( if its alright with you) to my studies. God is telling me this morning , I've had a fun weekend , now its time to get back to studying His Word.

    Thank you for this-

  3. I have to admit the kids and I make fun of my husband. Mostly is out of fun and purely innocent but at times it has little digs to it. Thank you for this reminder.

  4. This is something I have really been working on. Like Eileen, I am a control freak, but it's not my job to control everything. I have to trust my husband to lead and trust God to guide my husband. We're getting there. :)

  5. Hi Jenifer - I was reading something today that said the word says we are to respect our husbands (whether they have earned our respect or not). I think when we do, and we pray for them and trust God to help them lead, then God honours us and things change for us for the better in our marriages. Great post
    God bless

  6. Can I just say....OUCH! wow this really stepped on my toes, Ok God I am listening. Great post thank you :) I too am a control freak and slowly but surely God is telling me to step back and let my husband lead..every day is room for growth.

  7. AMEN sista! I am now following your blog, would appreciate you following me back. Have a wonderfully blessed day!
