Stop and think for a minute. If I describe a woman’s responsibility in the home as a helper who is submissive and respectful of her husband, what images pop into your mind? Do you think of a strong, competent woman with lots of influence? Or did you automatically think mousey and passive, having no thoughts of her own and just simply waiting to be bossed around?
Would it surprise you to know that God had the strong, competent woman in mind when He created woman and her position in the home?
Our culture, and, unfortunately, even our Christian culture, has distorted many of these terms to abuse and misuse women. In the next few podcasts we will take a closer look at these aspects of woman’s responsibility in the home, so we can thrive and embrace our responsibilities with joy.
Let’s jump right in with man as the head.
