Verse: Genesis 2:24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”
You are joined in unity with your husband, and in the eyes of God, you are seen as one flesh. The beauty of this verse awes me. You are seen as one by the Creator that brought you to the man. When you, as an unit, work together, pray together and live together for God, He honours the unity and blesses it. Within the blessing of unity, man chooses to be with his wife and leaves his childhood house. He honours, respects and values her. This means that he commits in owning the responsibility of taking care of his wife and his family and putting them under God. He loves, honours, respects and values her. This creates an honourable submission from the woman. Submissiveness due to love and respect. The same submissiveness you show in your relationship with God.
Spiritual Growth: Make a list of 5 things you really respect and honor your husband (or man in your life) for. Sometimes it’s not that easy at all, but try just 5 for now and keep your list.
