God calls men to be the head of their house. "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."
(1Co 11:3) Men are called to be the leaders in the home. This is an unpopular view in today’s society, but God makes it clear.
But my purpose in writing this is for women. Since man is to be our head, we are to submit to his authority. We follow where he leads us to heaven. This also is unpopular. Our society teaches us to obey our own will instead of bowing to another’s will. Our purpose is to bow first to God’s will and then to our husband’s.
The thing that impresses me the most is that we were created for a specific purpose. God created Adam first. His first task was to name all the animals. When there was not someone suitable to be a companion for him, God created one. Woman was born out of a specific need, a desire for man to have a counterpart. "And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him." (Gen 2:18)
We were made so that man would not be alone, but many women instead choose to leave man alone. Some leave their purpose behind to pursue their self-made purposes in the world. May we rise above and accept our God-given roles to be the women we were created to be.
