“I should be the one handling this situation, I am the wife and this is my expertise.”
“He should not tell me what to do, I have my own rights.”
These are some of the complaints husbands receive from their wives. Now, it all sums up with the word SUBMISSION. Is it really hard for a wife to submit to her husband?
Nowadays, submission is really a big issue between a husband and a wife. If submission in a marriage is not applied, this can lead to burnouts. Also, if this is not prevented, it can unfortunately lead to a divorce, which is depressing.
Submission to your husband is a difficult thing to do if you don’t fully understand the reason why you are doing it.
According to Ephesians 5:22-24, “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now, as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.”
It was clearly stated that wives should submit themselves to their husbands like how we should submit as the church to Christ. Some people might think of this verse differently, they might think that submission is about controlling, but in this context, it is not.
