Men, Do You Submit to Your Wife?

Submission is a word that’s not very popular these days as the classic bumper sticker states: “Question Authority.”.

Submission is also unpopular, especially when Bible verses like Ephesians 5:22: “Wives submit to your husbands as unto the Lord.” give the mistaken impression that Scripture teaches that only women should submit. In reality, the message of submission is often ignored by men but is just as important since the Bible is clear everybody submits to somebody.

I’d like you to put aside any preconceived notions and read this post, Men, Are You Submissive? because submission is not a female virtue; it’s a Christian virtue.

The post provides a provocative – yet real view of the type of submission that we all need to understand. It also includes some great diagnostic questions for men, like do we submit to our employer,  church leaders, elders, and governing authorities. 

But I’d add one more area: Do you submit to your wife?

The reality is the Bible is clear that everybody submits to somebody. If men are to be leaders in the church and the home, we need to be a model of submission in all ways. Read the entire post to understand why.

Speaking of wives, find out why she SHOULD NOT be your best friend in my new book, Get Out of Your Man Cave: The Crisis of Male Friendship.  Pick up your copy today on Amazon at the links below.
