Treat her like a lady.

Our son Lee has worked in the service industry for 3 decades. For many of those years he was service manager at a tires business. He expected the men to be on their best behavior. He encouraged them to be courteous; especially to women customers. Lee told them to treat the ladies in the same way they’d want others to treat their mothers.

Husbands, treat her like a lady.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh (Ephesians 5:25-31 NKJV).”

Men, treat her like a lady; praise her.

“Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
‘Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 NKJV).”
