As we are approaching Valentine’s Day, I want to encourage you to honor your husband this week. Of course not just this week, but all year long; however, I want us to make this week all about him. We get so caught up in ministry that we sometimes let the sparks “die down.” Rekindle those flames this week as you celebrate him for this special day.

Your marriage may be going through some rough waters right now, but I would dare say if you made a concentrated effort of honoring him all week, you would see some things change. Remember what scripture says: “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.” – Ephesians 5:22-23

Now, I know what you are saying, “Read the rest of the scripture because my husband isn’t loving me like Christ loved the church.” And if that is the case, pray that God would speak to him in this area, but in the meantime, you just love and honor him as you should and let God do the rest.

I recently saw the following post on a friend’s Facebook page who had shared it from a radio station, and I want to share it with you today as you prepare to honor your husband.

  1. Never belittle your man.
  2. Never talk down to him
  3. Never ignore him.
  4. Never let him feel replaceable.
  5. Never play down your need for him
  6. Never cause him to feel embarrassed.
  7. Never look away or text while he’s talking.
  8. Never manipulate him.
  9. Never boss him.
  10. Never laugh at his mistakes or faults.
  11. Never put any person before him.
  12. Never be too busy for him.
  13. Never be inconsiderate of his feelings.
  14. Never tell his personal business.

“It doesn’t matter if the man you are dealing with is your father, your grandfather a boyfriend of 2 weeks, or your husband of 50 years, this is how women should respect all men at all times.”

So let’s examine ourselves and ask the question, “Am I honoring my husband?” If not, then ask God to do a work in your heart.
