On a day with not much work to do in the office, a colleague narrates an argument she had with her husband and somewhere along the line he quoted Ephesians 5, 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……..
Emmmm I thought verse 25 also had something about men loving their wives. Why do men always leave out that part? It’s amazing how the least religious of men can quote this verse so well? Who am I challenge the words of the holy book?
I must say though that the two words start with the letter “s” but I don’t think that should be a reason why anyone should mistake one for the other. Seems nowadays a lot of people can’t just draw the line or maybe the line isn’t that visible.
I believe submission comes naturally when there’s love and you tend to even submit without knowing that you are. I don’t need a man to scream his head off telling me to submit. There’s so much talk going on about how a lot of women feel independent and want to take the place of a man and all that but let’s get real, how many men would want to be with a “zombie” who would say yes to everything he says without stating her own opinion on issues? Isn’t the relationship supposed to be one of mutual love or respect?
I really need to know where the line is and how thick it is because it seems its getting fainter by the day and I fear it may vanish one day.
