“Headship” and Equality Between Men and Women
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Ephesians 5:21
First Corinthians 11:3 says, “The head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” Sometimes we get confused about what it means to be the “head” of the family.
Anything with no head is dead and anything with two heads is abnormal. Just because the man is the head doesn’t mean that the wife is inferior. Both are equal before God. Both bear the image of God. Both are heirs of the grace of life.
But while male and female are equal, God has given them different roles. In the family, men have been given the role of leader.
How would our world function if no one was in charge? How would your body function without your head? Pray for leaders in your home, community, church, state, and nation.
