1 Peter 3:1-2 (AMP)
In like manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives,
When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him--to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].
This was my reading today, alot to cover.
Respect = regard, deference, expression of good-will, to honor or esteem, have relation to.
regard = to observe, heed, attention, respect, consideration.
deference = respect to another.
rever = to regard with respect and affection.
adore = to love intensely
admire = to regard approvingly.
praise = commendation, applause.
enjoy = take pleasure in.
What makes him feel respected? How do you communicate these things to him?
Find out, ask, investigate, make investments of time and energy.
All of this will pay big rewards.
It's summed up in vs. 9
"For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God--that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection]." (AMP)
When we take care of the things God has called us to, He will make sure we are taken care of!
