What does submission really mean to you? What does God require of us? I have heard lots of women say, they are not slaves and have equal rights with men, so why should they be submissive? Some others say, they are too independent and nobody can boss them around. Ok, first of all we need to know what submission really means. It means being in agreement with your husband in all things. This is why the bible says, “Can two walk together except they agree?” (Amos 3:3). It also means trusting your husband enough to give him the liberty to occupy his position as the head of the union. Even if we have equal abilities, we should willfully step back to allow the husband to take the leadership role. Even though, the husband takes the leadership role the wife needs to be supportive. If as a wife you are always disagreeing with everything he says, it will be difficult for you to have a good relationship and you will lose out on Gods blessings. Wives are made to be helpmates to their husbands. (Genesis 2:18-22) In my personal experience, even when we don’t see eye to eye on a particular subject, we always find a way to come to an agreeable and amicable solution at the end of the day. At the same time, I don’t try to circumvent his leadership role. Submission doesn’t or should never equate to slavery in any shape or form. I pray that the Lord gives us all a submissive spirit so that we dont lose out on our heavenly blessings.
