BORN TO BLOG with Theresa Speight Toulmon: “Respect is More Important to a Man than Love.”

Here is a word of wisdom for some:  Respect is more important to a man than love.  Men interpret respect as love.  That is their language.  The Bible puts it this way: “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband” (Eph 5:33 KJV.)  The Amplified Bible goes on to explain that she must “…see that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates and esteems him …”.  Many male/female relationships (including father/daughter relationships) fail the female has not learned to observe this principle.  Like it or not, the woman who yells at, criticizes or fails to point out a man’s strengths to him will find that he leaves the relationship emotionally first.  In some cases, he will then leave physically, not because he meets someone more attractive, but because he meets someone who respects and honors him consistently and focuses on his strengths.  The woman who consistently demonstrates sincere respect for him will always be the one he chooses to love.  If you are being physically abused, you need a rescue.  But if you are trying to improve a relationship that has gone sour, you may need to adjust yourself in this area.  If you cannot find anything about your man that you respect or honor, then perhaps you should ask God to heal your broken heart.  It takes the love of God to do this.   Share this word with someone who needs a word of wisdom today.  You may also benefit from reading my book entitled Be Encouraged: God Can Undo It!
