Remember, Paul uses these things as an illustration of the Church. Thus we all need to heed and know our role. For it is a grand blessing of God to be His bride.
Ladies, your success is not based on your husband, but on your God. Live accordingly. For it is an honor to God to serve well, especially in difficult circumstances.
1 Corinthians 11:3 The husband is the head of the wife
Proverbs 31:10-31 The priority is the household to aid the husband
2 Peter 1:3 Doing all with excellence
Ephesians 5:22 & 33 submit and respect, serving by building up your co-laborer
Peter shows that it has a purpose in bringing others to Christ.
