This year in our discipleship group, we are starting a series on Dr. Eggerich’s Book, Love and Respect. I am sooooo excited!
We had our first session last Sunday together with other newly wed couples and one engaged couple. Hubby thought we could finish the whole introduction chapter but we just had so much to say! We were laughing all the time while relating to each other our experiences being married.
One wife commented after sharing something she thought was odd, “It feels good. I was asking myself if I were normal.” It does feel good knowing that there are people around you who actually experience the same adjustments that you are going through! What a blessing to be part of this group!
Anyway, we got to finish the first part where we talked about how we could respect our husbands more. It is summarized in the acronym: C-H-A-I-R-S.
Conquest – We are to encourage and support our husbands to work and achieve their goals.
Hierarchy – Wives must allow their husbands to protect and provide for the family.
Authority – We must give our husbands the opportunity to lead the home.
Insight – Men are logical and so we are to give them the chance to analyze and counsel.
Relationship – Our husbands also want friends. We are to be a friend to them – jog or run with them, play sports with them, etc.
Sexuality – Do I need to explain? Haha! Men have sexual needs wives must fulfill. =)
It was truly a refreshing afternoon! I learned a lot from what the other wives shared and realized that I still could improve in many areas so I could show my husband I respect him.
How do you show you respect your husband?
