Where leadership is lacking, confusion and chaos are often present. Alistair Begg draws our attention to the role God has given to husbands and highlights the biblical standards for how men can lead in their homes. First and foremost, a husband is to love his wife as Christ loves the church: realistically, sacrificially, purposefully, willfully, and absolutely. When this priority is in place, a husband provides a model for all members of the family to emulate.
18Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
