Do You Honor Your Wife?

April 26, 2022 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

(Proverbs 31:28)

PONDER THIS:

Husbands, do you know what it means to give your wife honor? To give honor means to set something aside as having great value. Somehow you have to get across to your wife that you value her, that she is of worth to you, that she is important to you, that she is God’s priceless gift.

One of the ways to do this is to tell her how much you value and appreciate her. Thank her and give her honor for all the ways God has blessed you through her. Let the children know that you honor her. Let your children hear you praise their mother. This is one of the finest things you can possibly do and one of the clearest ways you can be a blessing to your wife.

  • Who might you honor in your life­—whether your spouse or someone else?
  • How does speaking well of another honor both the person and the Lord?

PRACTICE THIS:

Ephesians 5:33 says for husbands to love their wives and for wives to respect their husbands. Consider how you might show love or respect to your spouse today; act on this.
