Completing Him Challenge --Catch up

This weeks challenge is to

R-E-S-P-E-C-T Your Husband!

This challenge comes straight from the Bible -
Ephesians 5:33 says "Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself and the wife must respect her husband."
Courtney has a list of disrespectful things we might do...
1. The wife rolling her eyes at him.
2. The wife criticizing him.

3. The wife complaining to her mother or girlfriends about his flaws.

4. The wife not respecting his knowledge, opinions or decisions.

5. The wife nagging him or assuming the worst in his actions.

6. The wife using sarcasm to communicate bitterness.

7. The wife disrespecting his work, protection, provision or leadership.

8. The wife disrespecting his need for physical intimacy or his "manhood"
(wink wink).

Any look familiar to you?
The issue of respecting your husband was brought to my attention a few years ago. I honestly had never realized first how important it was to a man to have respect vs love, and second some of the seemingly innocent (to me) things that were disrespectful to him! 
Why are we to respect them? God tells us to. God has put the husband at the head of the house and we are to honor that position.
I have been working on this list of items, long before I knew of Courtney. :) I am sure I still have a long ways to go however!
