Under Your Husband’s Covering

“Covering” is a kind of metaphor for husbands being the head – the wife coming under her husband’s wing. (1 Cor. 11:3-15, Eph. 5:22-24)

An ancient Hebraic wedding custom included a robe or shawl that a groom placed around the shoulders of his bride signifying she has come under his covenant covering of protection, and spiritual, physical, emotional, and material care.

Covering is like the blood that covers our sins. A husband is the head and the responsibility falls on Him. As Jesus took the responsibility for our sins and to protect us from the wrath that sin will inflect on us. So a husband to covers his wife and family by this same love and sacrifice that it takes to care for his family. A wife is a help-mate which means partner. She should be treated as a equal and not less. If there is a decision to make that is not agreed on. Then the husband will make that final decision, but he should respect his wife’s opinion and she should respect his appointed spiritual leadership. There are things that God has given each of us that the other can not see. We need to have wisdom to know the differents and walk in it. And its ok if we mess up, cause we will get to do it again.

• In the beginning, God placed the woman under the protective covering of her husband and took responsibility away from her placing it on the man, because it was the woman who had been deceived. [Genesis 3:1-13, 16, 1 Timothy 2:14]

• Older women are instructed to behave properly and to instruct younger women to love their husbands and children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. [Titus 2:4-5]

• The only command God gave to the woman is to submit to the authority of her husband. [Ephesians 2:22-24, Colossians 3:18, 1 Peter 3:1-6]

• The commands to the husband are to be responsible for his wife in a loving and cherishing role. [Ephesians 5:25-33, Colossians 3:18-19, 1 Peter 3:7]

• God will forgive the woman, and hold the man responsible.

• If the woman has no father or husband to provide this covering, then she bears her own responsibility before God.

• God loves the woman, and His best desire is for her to have the protective covering of a loving father or loving husband.
