Love is Honorable

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.  - 1 Peter 3:7

To honor someong means to give them respect and high esteem, to treat them as being special and of great worth.  When you speak to them, you keep your language clean and understandable.  You are courteous and polite.  When they speak to you, you take them seriously, giving their words weight and significance.  When they ask you to do something, you accomodate them if at all possible, simply out of respect for who they are.

Honoring your husband means giving him your full attention, not talking from behind a book or with one eye on the television.  When a decision is being made that affects both of you, you give your husband's voice and opinions equal influence in your mind.  You honor what they have to say.

You should give honor to your husband even if he doesn't reciprocate.  This is how you create an atmosphere for love to be a beauty of honor.

Task:  Choose a way to show honor and respect to your husband that is above your normal routing.  It could be putting his clothes away for him or the way you listen and speak in your communication.  Show him that he is highly esteemed in your eyes.
