And the head of the woman is the man, The man is first in order in being, was first formed, and the woman out of him, who was made for him, and not he for the woman, and therefore must be head and chief; as he is also with respect to his superior gifts and excellencies, as strength of body, and endowments of mind, whence the woman is called the weaker vessel; likewise with regard to pre-eminence or government, the man is the head; and as Christ is the head of the church, and the church is subject to him, so the husband is the head of the wife, and she is to be subject to him in everything natural, civil, and religious. Moreover, the man is the head of the woman to provide and care for her, to nourish and cherish her, and to protect and defend her against all insults and injuries.Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
We ask today that Jesus be our example in all things. Sometimes as humans we do not want to be submissive to others. We have been taught to stand up for ourselves and our rights. Your definition of submission is so much better when we fully understand what it is You want from us. It is then that we can clearly see why this is the best way. You have done it for our protection. Just as we have rulers over us in society and in the military because without rules there is chaos. So, also in our homes there must be order. Jesus, our King, submitted to Your will on the cross (Luke 22:42). He lived a life of submission. He, as Lord and Master, even humbled Himself and washed the disciples’ feet (John 13). Lord, help us to be humble. Help us to love one another and to freely give of ourselves to others as Jesus has shown us. May Your love compel us in everything that we think about, say and do. You are Lord and we worship You. You said it wasn’t good for man to be alone so You created woman for him (Genesis 2:18). Help our husbands to treat us with honor also as their queen, as we treat them as our king. May we always bring joy to You as You watch over us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
