Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
1 Peter 3:1-2
There's a saying that we should go into marriage engagements with eyes wide open, while in the marriage itself keep our eyes half shut. Yet what happens so many times is, for the women, the marriage isn't the dream life they've been desiring and they feel they have to do all they can to change their husband.
Peter says, wives, you can win over your husbands through chaste conduct and submission. Only God can change the heart of man.
I know it's difficult to submit to a husband that’s not submitting to the Lord, just as it's difficult for men to love their wife as Christ loved the church if their wife isn't walking with Jesus. Yet if we're going to truly follow God, we have to do those difficult things He requires. He will give us the strength to do it.
Praying for healthy marriages,
Pastor Ron Kitchell
