Submission is one of those incredibly sticky and controversy filled subjects. "But submission is only for married women!" Yeah, not so much. I'm assuming a great portion of you are single (as I am), so don't exit out of this post just yet!
Often submission is portrayed as an overbearing, ogre of a man who walks all over his wife, sits eating Cheetos while his wife cleans around him, wiping the running nose of a screaming child. Except this isn't what submission is about! I struggle with submission every single day, whether it's submission to my father, or mother. I have an....shall I be nice to myself and call it an "independent spirit"? Through prayer and relying on God I've gotten better, but I'm far from perfect at it.
I believe the struggle for headship and control started in the garden of Eden. Eve decided to take control and tell Adam what to eat. The end result was sin being introduced, yes. But also the struggle for control.
There's a difference between submitting and being a doormat. Feminism teaches that we're equal to a man, in that aspect I agree. But where my beliefs differ from a feminist, is the whole "We're equal, so that means you can't ever tell me what to do." Yep, that's where we differ! You wouldn't say the president is "better" than everyone else, yet we submit to him every day in the form of laws and rules.
Why are fathers and husbands any different?
Submission is two people, equal in intelligence and importance, yet completely different in their roles and headship.
Not two people, one inferior the other superior.
