- Build up, rather than tear down your spouse.
- Don’t remind your spouse of all you have done for him or her.
- Think more highly of your spouse than of yourself.
What does the Bible say about respect for others?
However, biblical respect is far different, more about a perceived inequality in that we recognize that some things and some people are more important than we (compare Philippians 2:3 ). To respect everyone, believers must be conscious that God has created all people in His image, regardless of whether they believe in Christ.

Why does the Bible Say Love Your Wife and respect your husband?
“Women need to feel loved, and men need to feel respected. This may explain why Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:33 that a husband must love his wife and a wife must respect her husband. Both commands are unconditional. The hard part is that respect comes more easily to men, and love comes easier to women.”
