Respect is not cheap. Wives who run after their husbands and totally adore them both in private and public with sweet smile on their face didn’t do so because they just wanted to; they do it because the man is adorable!
LYING will make you lose anyone’s respect including your wife’s. No one respects a man who lacks integrity. A man whose words can’t be relied upon. Your wife can’t beat her chest and stand for you over a matter. You lie at the drop of a hat! When you swear you are going to Abuja, they find you in Lagos. Your word is not your bond! You lose your wife’s respect and it will take fasting and prayer and the special grace of the Holy ghost for her to treat you as the head of the home.
YOU CHEAT: You run after any thing in skirt and shamelessly show it. You lack self control over your sex drive. Men like this don’t win anyone’s respect including their wives.
YOU ARE VERY STINGY and even count the number of meat in the pot the day you manage to drop something for soup. No one respects a man who is self centered.
YOU ARE SELFISH: You always think about yourself . You don’t care what your wife is going through per time. You don’t listen to her, engage her, spend time with her or discover areas she needs help. You are always absorbed with yourself and your own needs.
YOU ARE NOT GROWING spiritually, financially, physically, emotionally. You are stagnant. You refuse to read good books or attend seminars\programmes that will help you grow.
YOU ABUSE HER A LOT: You always call her name’s, yell at her, embarrass her and treats her like a child whenever she makes mistakes.
YOU ARE NOT PRAYERFUL: You are very lazy spiritually. You don’t take church serious. You don’t study your Bible and you don’t pray.
Before God asks anyone to submit to him, he did everything he could to deserve it.
He is holy, pure, faithful, dependable, reliable and even sacrificed his son to save us from the destruction of hell!
He showed us unconditional love and asks us to submit to his leading because his thoughts and action towards us are for our good, excellent grooming and super success in life plus abundant peace and joy!
No one will follow a bad leader! If anyone is foolish enough to do so, both will fall into the ditch and end up sorry!
A man is the leader in the home. You lead through your shinning example and excellent character!
Don’t quote: “wives, submit to your husbands” if you are not submitting to God.
