Husband & Wife.

April 2, 2009

Knowing something and thinking that it’s true is certainly different from believing and trusting that it’s true enough to make life-changing decisions based on that truth. Came across this quote this morning, and it kind of clarified a little bit for me. Still a lot to munch on, in terms of what this means and how this looks in daily life:

The core role of a husband is to be a servant-leader, leading as Christ leads and loving as Christ loves. The wife’s core response to this leadership is submission. The core role for a wife is to be a helper-homemaker, filling the gaps in her husband’s life and prioritizing her life around home and family. The husband’s core response to his wife is praise and honor.
