Today's reading: Ephesians 5:22-33
Paul's instruction concerning marriage in Ephesians 5—particularly the charge for wives to submit to their husbands—can spark a bit of controversy. But when we read and consider Ephesians 5:22-33 as a whole, what we see is the description of a properly functioning marital relationship. It's a picture of teamwork and partnership between two very different people who have chosen to come together in love and support one another.
"Let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband." (vs. 33)
What does this passage reveal about the importance of love in a marital relationship? What does it show about how love functions to unite husbands and wives together and strengthen relationships? Tami
