A few weeks ago (okay, maybe it was months – time flies when you are home schooling…) I told you I would put this list together.
Because sometimes we need a little help… and while I love what’s in The Respect Dare book, sometimes I need a list… a long list of very specific things that help me remember that I don’t want to look like this:
You can see why I drive my engineer husband a little bonkers.
And so today, I’m sharing the BIG LIST of things we can do – feel free to add some of your ideas at the end. And please know I mean NO offense with any of the language I use. “Let” does not mean to think of your husband as a child requiring your permission, but rather is a common word that can have a number of different meanings.
Also know that I know your husband may be different than mine – these are just suggestions – there’s no formula here.
At any rate, I’m daring you to comment, to share, to DO these things, to model them to your kids (even poorly until you can do this well) in an effort to obey God’s Word.
John 14:23 says… Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
So yes… obey God. Even if you’re not “feeling it.” Even if your husband “doesn’t deserve it.” Guess what? Both you AND him are ALWAYS going to be sinners. SO dish some grace. Respect. Love. Obey God. And if you do, the Trinity will dwell within you.
Which, btw, is stinkin’ awesome. And worth dying for.
And then you’ll be contagious.
So glad you are here.
Here’s the LIST of 101 Ways to Respect Your Husband.
Love to you,
