A man loves to be loved, but respect is what he needs to survive. It is like his oxygen. We can cut a man down just by the words we speak, which means we can also build him up with the words we speak, trust me, I know this all to well. No man can lead his wife and family, unless they are willing to follow.
A wife shows submission unto her husband when she allows him to take leadership in the relationship. His position as leader is biblical (1 Corinthians 11:3). When a woman submits unto her husband, she is actually submitting unto God (Ephesians 5:22-23). A woman therefore does not submit because her husband deserves it, she submits because she knows it is pleasing to her Lord. She can also know that nothing escapes God’s notice, and her husband will be held accountable for his actions, both good and bad.
I always had a hard time with this, I am still a work in progress, believe me, but when you are done playing and you are ready to walk in God's promises, obeying his word is how you will walk in his favor.
