Relationships and Roles
Colossians 3:18-25 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them...
Every one of us is involved in relationships, and in Colossians 3:18-4:1 Paul gives us relationship instructions broken down by role. Now most of us are going to fall into more than one role. I certainly do. I'm a wife, I'm a worker with a boss, and I'm also a boss over other people. So there's plenty for me to learn from this passage about relationships generally, and how I should function in each of my roles.
What did Colossians 3:18-4:1 show you about fostering and maintaining relationships? Was there something specific about a role you fill that moved your heart from this passage? Tami W.
