We continue our four part series about the fundamentals of Love and Respect from Ephesians 5.
Paul's words to the church in Ephesians 5:22-29 are perhaps some of the most controversial in today's society. They lead us to contemplate: "Are traditional views of leadership in marriage still relevant today? Why is a wife instructed to submit to her husband? And what does the phrase 'spiritual leader of the home' mean anyway?" It can all be a bit confusing.
What we point out is that the biggest burden for following these commands is placed on husbands, not wives. We hope you'll gain some helpful insights for your marriage as you consider your role in your marriage relationship.
