Episode Scripture

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Ephesians 5:22, 25 English Standard Version

Big Picture Take Away

The truth is, submission will look different in every marriage.

It really depends on your husband’s personality. Is he high strung or laid back? Confrontational or peaceable? Does he get super involved or prefer to stay in the background? Is he a natural leader or does he prefer to follow?

YOUR personality doesn’t factor into this calling, it just may make it easier or harder for you. (Personally, mine made it WAY harder!)
