As the helpmeet to our husbands, we often take the view on marriage from our own role. What if we stepped away from the everyday focus and looked at the little things.
Comparison, judgement, and "wise words" can rob us of what we know to be true of our own relationships. But words delivered with good intent can inspire and teach us about marriage in ways that will benefit us.
As a wife, I am created to be a helper to my husband, and he is made to be my strong support. Most of the world would read this as the woman being the meager secretary to the dominating man. I see this as guarantee from God that he will lead my husband to be the other half of my soul and will correct my husband if he goes astray from this charge.
The world view of love and the beliefs of the Christian marriage are far cries from one another today. What is real fact in Biblical standings?
The need to submit remains, even if our thoughts are screaming at us to respond differently. God calls us to overcome human impulse and nature to be His good servants.
