The Excellent Wife: Respecting the Husband's Position

In regard to respecting my husband, I love the picture Martha Peace paints for me. She writes,
"You may be smarter, wiser, or more gifted than your husband, but you are still to respect the position God has given him. You are like the soldier who stands at attention, salutes, and says, 'Yes, Sir!' to his superior officer. That high ranking officer may, in fact, be inferior to the soldier in intelligence, professionalism, commitment, character, wisdom, talents, or physical looks, but the soldier is to salute the uniform. The respect is to the position, not necessarily to the personality."
