“ONE” Is Not The Loneliest Number

Oh my, which scripture passage should I reflect on today?

  1. The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush andthe birds of the sky dwelt in its branches” orlike yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch of dough was leavened.”

or

  1. “Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the Church, he himself the savior of the Body. As the Church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything.” 

I have heard so many interpretations of number 2. I do not have to understand what it means. All I really need to do is to know my loving and merciful Heavenly Father, my loving and merciful Lord and Savior Jesus and the power of their love in the Holy Spirit. Jesus gave His life for us, the Church. I am to love my wife as Christ loved the Church. He died for it. I must die for her.

Our God created man and woman to complement each other giving us equal dignity. Why would we want to cause separation between us by ever thinking that one is greater than the other? The two become ONE flesh. ONE! EQUAL! As Jesus tells us often to love one another as I have loved you. We know how He loved us. Praise and Glory to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

  1. You bring up a great point… It doesn’t matter. If you start loving your wife like Christ loves the church, your wife will submit to you just as the church submits to Christ. The word “submission” is not so much an act of subordination, but a natural reaction to unconditional love… my take on it

    Love this post! You brought such clarity to the “husband and wife” Scripture. Many take this that a man must absolutely “rule” his wife. I do believe if a man is a believer he is the “head of the household,” but in the way you described. Great post and God Bless, SR

  3. Equal but DIFFERENT…yes, that is the key! People in today’s society can argue left and right that there is no difference between the genders, but if that were the case, we would only have one gender! Men and women are equal, but they are not the same. As you said, they were created to complement and support each other. Vive la difference! 🙂
