Realization: Not only should there be no competition whatsoever among married couples, there should also be no competition in terms of time, talent or treasure between career and family life. In fact, I, as the wife, must be the helpmeet of my husband. I must acquiesce whatever superior thoughts I have towards him and be Biblically submissive to him. Only when I was convicted of my sins of disrespect towards my husband did I truly experience peace and joy that the world could not give.Only when I have given up my selfish desires to be deemed "successful" in my career, and relished my role in the home, did I find my most authentic self. :)
18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
1 Peter 3:6
For instance, Sarah obeyed her husband, Abraham, and called him her master. You are her daughters when you do what is right without fear of what your husbands might do.
Tulad ni Sara, sinunod niya at tinawag na panginoon ang asawa niyang si Abraham. Kayo rin ay mapapabilang sa kanyang mga anak kung matuwid ang inyong mga gawa, at kung wala kayong anumang kinatatakutan.
