Mrs. Fink on reverence

I read this on Mrs. Julie Fink's blog
I am giving you a excerpt but would
encourage you to go and read the
"rest of the story".
I think this is something WE ALL
need to work on :
"On the day before my husband was due to leave for an unaccompanied tour to Okinawa in July of 1993, my husband stood in the kitchen with an open book in his hand and a puzzled look on his face.
“Come here Julie,” he said to me on that day, “I want to show you something.”
And then he proceeded to show me something from a part of the Bible that I was not really that familiar with.

“See all of this Julie, I would be willing to give you all of this if you would just give me this one thing . . . REVERENCE.”
Ladies, this is such a good post. We all need this teaching.
I know you will be blessed.

This was a great post and one that I totally agree with. It was a blessing to read.Thanks, Deby. connie from texas

Our Pastor taught a message similar to this at our Wednesday bible study two weeks ago. He talked about how we need to edify and revernce our husbands. Very good message.....and this post was great as well.....we as wives dont have a choice of how we treat our husbands. The bible commands it.

That is a great post! So many times what is given is not reverence! Marriage is often more of a tug of war for power.

Thank you Deby for your encouraging words and link to my post on reverence. It's funny how God puts it on our hearts to share something that seems to later encourage many other people. May God be blessed and honored by our desires to grow in our walks with Him. Love, Julie

Thanks for the reference. I will try to get over to read it tomorrow. I enjoy topics like that as I always need reminding! I used to go to ladies retreats and conerences often, where I would get a refresher course on my duty often, but it has been awhile since attending one. I look forward to reading Julie's entire post.
