“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”– Eph 5:25
During the last few decades our culture has redefined the meaning and responsibilities of men and women in society and in the home. Many men are confused and insecure. Many do not know how to act in the home. Consequently, they do not lead effectively, or they do not even try. Increasingly, many men are becoming passive in the home. They’ve decided that the easiest thing to do is nothing. The simplest thing—with the smallest risk—is to stay on the fence with both feet firmly planted in mid-air and let the wife do it. When a man is married to a strong wife who will take over, he often lets her do just that. In order to take the place of a head in the structure, it is necessary to subordinate yourself to Christ completely as He submitted himself to His Father in all things (Phil 2:8-11). The centurion understood this: everyone was listening to him because he was obedient to his superior (Math 8:9).
