I have found a recurring theme occupying my thoughts lately (I mean, besides Sonic Strawberry Limeades and chocolate cupcakes). The idea of “Honor” has been heavy on my mind.
What does honor really mean? Honor your husband, honor your father and mother, honor others…
The definition of the verb “honor” says:
verb (used with object)
- Speak well of them. It’s so easy to join into “husband bash” sometimes, and while I don’t believe that my husband is perfect, it’s so important to talk about his good traits, skills and abilities instead of a list of things he doesn’t do.
- Speak well TO him. Very similar to how we speak to others about our husbands, it is SO important that we build him up with encouraging words!
- Look to him to lead. He is the head of the household, do we treat him that way? Sometimes a husband stops leading because a wife takes the lead before he can. So sometimes we just need to step by and wait a second to give him the opportunity. Through some wise counsel, we learned early in our marriage that even in the small decisions we should consult each other. So I learned to say “Let me check with Harrison” before committing us to an event, activity or responsibility. And he lets me know that he always appreciates that I ask him.
