The Misunderstood Principle of Submission
“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.” 1 John 5:3
Submission is a term that has been grievously distorted because there are men who have used the word as a weapon to club their wives rather than as a hammer to build their homes.
When God tells children to obey their parents, He also instructs the fathers to “provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
Discuss the principle of submission with your family and friends this week. Contrast what the world would say it means to submit with what God desires for us.
