This week we look at the “S” word, a word that has even been brought up in the discussions of the various 2012 GOP presidential candidates. The buzz went out soon after Michelle Bachman admitted that she submitted life plans and career goals to her husband for discussion and direction. She dared to say that she “submitted” to her husband.
Pundits gasped, “Why would she do such a thing?!” Her response was very simple, at least to her. The Bible said so and that settled it.
What does the Bible actually say about the wife’s responsibility in the husband-wife role? Last week we saw that God commands husbands to love their wives with agapé love — God’s unconditional, self-sacrificial love. That is his responsibility. Now we seek to discover what God has given to a Spirit-filled wife and how that should work out in every day living.
