Maybe God talked about money so many times in the Bible because we tend to put our security in money.
Maybe God commanded the husbands to love their wives because they tend to forget to show they love their wives.
And maybe God told the wives to submit to their husbands because wives tend to do otherwise!
Early in our marriage, submission was a household name. It was never an issue. One of the things I’ve always been thankful for is my husband’s leadership. Since he was a good leader, submission came in naturally. Then two years into the marriage, I suddenly found myself negating his ideas most of the time even before he would finish explaining. I started questioning his leadership. I knew I was not pleasing Him and him.
God then came into the rescue.
On one of our morning devotions, I’ve read these exact words.
I froze. I was definitely not doing than.
And then the other day while blog hopping, I came across a post on praising your husband.
God must really be telling me something! I just closed my eyes and thanked God for the warning signals. I’ve seen many MANY marriages fall apart because of that simple (yet complicated) command from God.
Submit to your husbands.
Today, I can’t really say that I’m able to submit 100% but I am definitely more conscious now of the words I use when I communicate with him. I try my best to understand his point than stress that he’s got it all wrong. I make sure I praise him and highlight the good rather than the bad.
Are you submissive enough to respect your husband’s decision?
