Valentine’s Day musings (not a forward). Two lessons from bible, and my musings, rather!
“And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
Ephesians 5:21 NLT
Lots of people think wife should submit to husband, and strangely, most of those who do also act out as if they submitted to their wives. Remember Boban & Molly cartoons of the 70s, where the character of Chettan is always afraid of the dictatorial Chedathy!
“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
Most people like myself think it is my priorities that the wife should adapt to, or vice versa. WRONG!
Building one another up is a lifelong journey, and either partner should do equally towards the other. This includes support for his/ her passions, careers, achievements, disappointments, including finding the time and energy to do so, and even publicly showing the support.
Both verses jumped out from this book.
Women there aren’t just protesting against violence. They are fighting for freedom from the institutions that hold them back.
