Lesson 7

Q: What is the secret to validating our husbands?

A: The following is an article that was on Facebook. You may have seen it already, but I wanted to share it with you just in case you missed it. I believe it cuts to the core of our relationship with our husbands. I will explain why at the end of the article. This comes from Uncommon Marriage:

“Advice to the wives. If you really want to touch the heart of your husband, instead of telling him that you love him try this. Stop what you are doing, get up close to him, grab both of his hands, and look him in the eyes. Then tell him you are proud of him, tell him you respect him, tell him you honor him, and tell him you grateful for the husband and father he is, or is trying to be……and please make sure that you mean what you are saying (he’ll know the difference). If you do this you will have touched the heart of your husband, the very core of him as a man and don’t be surprised if you make him cry, while he is doing that back flip for, and because of you.

“Yes, we as husbands need to be loved but we rarely doubt that we are loved by our wives. We know we are, even when you’re mad at us. Often what we are less sure of, and what is so very very important for us to know are the answers to the questions, ‘Am I doing a good job? Am I a good provider? In your eyes, am I good man?’

“Many husbands are so very desperate to know the answers to these questions but wouldn’t ever dare ask them because a negative response from our wives would cut us deeper than you can probably imagine. We won’t risk it so if you think your husband is a good man then you should tell him so.

“If you don’t think he is a good man then pray him into it. A wife’s prayers for her husband have a far greater effect on him than anyone else’s.

– Danny Delgado

Proverbs 31:11 “The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.”

When answering a question about a man’s needs, It’s often helpful to hear from a man’s perspective. That keeps us from having to guess what’s going on. But the reason I believe this article cuts to the core of our relationship with our husbands is because it is actually in the Bible and I believe the Bible is true! In Ephesians 5, wives are told to respect their husbands. 

However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. – Ephesians 5:33

Notice it says that husbands are to “love” their wives, but wives are to “respect” their husbands. I know it says for wives to “love” their husbands in other parts of the Bible, but here it shows the contrast. Why? Because husbands carry a lot of weight on their shoulders as they try to provide for their families and balance work with family life and, oftentimes they aren’t sure if they are fulfilling the dreams of their wives or children. They get so much negative feedback from the world that they often believe their wife thinks of them in the same way. When you look at the preceding verses in Ephesians 5 (verses 25-32), you can see the huge responsibility that has been placed upon our husbands. In order for them to manage it all, they need to know that we “respect” them and the burden they carry for us!

Thought Question: Why does Ephesians 5:33 tell men to love their wives, but it tells wives to “respect” their husbands?
