In our concluding Word of the Week in our Marriage series, we consider the word "submission" and "leadership." We go back to Ephesians 5 as we consider what God has to say about the roles of husbands and wives in their relationship to one another. The LORD says that husbands are to love their wives with a self sacrificing love, and wives are to respect and submit to their husbands. While this is rebelled against in our world today, this is an important and necessary principle that is needed in the marriage relationship, as it is in many relationships. This does not mean that the husband is better or more important than the wife, but rather about an important established order for the good of the family.
