The Submission Riddle

Read something REALLY GOOD earlier that I thought I'd share with everybody, particularly Christians. How often do we hear the verse that says that a wife is supposed to submit to the husband? And how often is that verse misused?

Here's what I read today: The Submission Riddle.

In the end, it all boils down to LOVE...

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - excerpts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13


  1. Amen! Love is...



  2. The quotation about love is basically the best definition of love in the world - bar none. We used that for the Epistle at our wedding.
    On the submission question, I think that when a husband abuses his power in the name of that verse, it's obviously wrong. It's really a shame some men do that. If I were to relate that verse to my situation, Maribeth & I are pretty far from submitting to each other; I couldn't imagine thinking about her in anyway but an equal. Her submitting to me??!??? ha, ha that will be the same day when pigs fly!

  3. It sounds like you had a nice Easter. Mine was nice with my in-laws. They're wonderful!!
    Amel, how is your class going??

  4. I think if we follow what it is written, there will be no divorce in this world... Currently I'm reading a book about Biblical Marriage and Family. Hope to share some thoughts one day in my blog when I finished it. Btw, I like your blog and have subscribed rss feed in my reader. Happy Blogging!

  5. Lori: God bless you too, Lori! ;-D

    Vince: HE HE HE HE HE...Equal, eh? Well, there's nothing wrong in being equal as long as both respect and bridge the differences. :-)))

    Catherine: THANKS SO MUCH for your kind words. :-)))) I'll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on marriage and family. ;-D
