Keeping it short and simple…my take is this:
Being submissive to her husband does not mean that a woman is weak, rather it means that she is a true child of her father (God).
This is because the command to be submissive is God’s, and not man’s.
Most women fear the word ‘submissiveness’ because they believe it is another word for being a “doormat”. This is as a result of some misconception of the word, and wrong teachings of some feminist. Again it could also be attributed to some men’s treatment of women due to their(men) misunderstanding of what the word means as well.
If truly women have a clear understanding of what “it means for a woman to submit to her husband, then they would understand how easy it is, because they will know that, giving the position of man, starting from the time of creation, it is only natural for any woman to submit to the man in her life.
Having said that, if a woman must fulfill her own part of the command by God, to be submissive, then the man MUST fulfil his, which is
“TO LOVE HIS WIFE JUST AS CHRIST LOVED HIS CHURCH AND GAVE HIS LIFE FOR IT. (Ephesians 5:22-25).
NB: A man that LOVES his wife WILL NEVER MISTREAT HER IN ANY WAY!
To be submissive is as simple as this:
LET YOUR MAN LEAD…LET HIM BE THE LEADER OF THE HOME.
Women are called “Helpmates”, that means that the men are supposed to lead and then the women should help them.
Let him lead in everything…except the ones he assigns to you as his helpmate.
I SUPPORT FAIR TREATMENT…BUT NEVER GENDER EQUALITY
Woman was made out of a man, so how can they be equal????
We all have our places…let’s take them accordingly….
