Being a submissive wife.
Today my friend Whitney is talking about Being a Submissive Wife
Being a submissive wife is something that I personally believe is highly disregarded in today's time and perhaps the reasoning being due to misunderstanding the heart of God on the matter. Colossians 3:18 - wives, submit to your husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Submission is not:
Avoiding every disagreement between you and your husband because he said so.
Being treated as if you are under your husband's feet.
The weaker link.
Being a slave.
The doormat that he wipes his dirty shoes on.
Submission is allowing your husband to take leadership and fulfill his duty of being head of the household. A healthy marriage consists of a team; teams make decisions together but there's always a leader who has the ultimate say. This is how God set it up and he gave the husband the ultimate say. But husband's don't get off easy; In fact, a husband should read this post just as much as the wife simply because submission comes a lot easier when the husband takes on his role of loving his wife as Christ loved the church. When the husband is committed to his wife and loves her like Christ loves the church, the 2 naturally want to serve each other.
Wives, understand the importance of your husband's role. Do not take it lightly. God gave the husband/father the position of head of the household so understand that he will one day have to answer for the decision he made for his family.
Be supportive of your husband.
Pray for him.
Be his biggest fan.
And submit to him, because ultimately you are submitting to God.
