Does Modern Wife Know About Submission

Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. Ephesians 5:22

If you are having a difficult time submitting to your husband, it is because you have not submitted your life to God. Before a woman can actually understand the logistics of submission she must submit her own life to The Lord. Please understand that God did not make the man better than the woman in any way, only different. Let’s take a look.

For example, if you were being robbed, who would grab the gun and protect the family, you or your husband? Would it seem odd to you if your husband said for you to get the gun while he hides in the closet? It would. In fact your husband would probably tell you to go in the room with the children and protect (nurture) them, while he confronts the robber. It is totally instinctive for the man to grab the gun, while the women waits in the shadows with her kids. No man in his right mind is going to make his wife protect him.

This is just one way in which God created the sexes different. So, my point is, why in an emergency is it okay for the man to be a man, but when it is during regular home life, with no emergency, the wife bosses and controls her husband around like he is a child? Where is the respect in that?

Let’s take a look at another scenario. A wife leaves her children, husband, and duties of the home everyday to work under another man, her employer. Pretty soon co-workers begin making flirtatious advances at her. Every day men at her work are making her feel good about herself. Her husband is not making her feel good about herself, in fact the marriage is strained from her being tired and overworked. If this woman is vulnerable or not really committed to her marriage what do you think is going to happen? That’s right, she’s going to have an affair.

I have to ask this. Why is she not home under her husband’s guidance and protection? How can a man protect his wife when she is leading her own life outside the bounds of the marriage? Wives working out of the home, whether they work for women or men is a major reason for marital breakups, especially when husband and wife have no moral standards or codes established for the marriage. Neither one of them is taking their God given positions in the marriage seriously.

The feminist movement and the ways of society has created some confused women to treat their husbands with disrespect-its an attitude that is fostered through encouraging women to be all that they can be, without the aid of a man. And that’s fine, but if she is married is it still fine? How can you treat your husband like the man of the home/marriage when you are already behaving as if you are the man?

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:2-3

  1. Yes.I have read the original post and it is true.In the very olden days men gone out to work and the women took charge of the household.She tried to feed the family with healthy and tasty foods,she brings up the children takes care of the h…usband when he is tired or sad.Same time men worked for the family,for the wife and children. He earned to make the wife and children and his parents happy and good.But alas,time have changed completly.It is not a bad thing for the women go to work now a days,but in many families she has no time to care the family.And when the husband ignores or doesn’t lov her..alas the family is shattered.So wives and husbands should be loyal with each other and if the family is a Christ centered family the children are blessed.
