OK, here we go again! Please join us for Marriage Monday on Feb. 20, 2012.
Tell us what you’ve learned about submission in Christian marriage.
For some women, this is a particularly challenging topic. If you're uncomfortable with this one, no worries. Feel free to take a pass this time around.
However, if you’re ready to dive right in—but stumped as to how to begin—you might consider selecting one of the following writing prompts.
1. Define the Greek word for submission, "hupotasso" [hoop-ot-as-so].
2. Tell us a story. Show how your submissive attitude blessed your husband on a specific occasion.
3. Expound this biblical passage: Ephesians 5:22-33.
4. Discuss what the Bible has to say about submission outside of marriage
e.g. to bosses, political leaders, and other authorities.
Or, you can cover this topic from whatever angle the Spirit leads.
By the way, I certainly understand the impulse to “vent” when processing new information or difficult issues (such as submission). However, I would ask that you refrain from doing that here in the comments as a courtesy to me your hostess, the other commenters, and especially to those who might be new.
Here's your chance to blog it all out, Sister!
Thank you for keeping Marriage Monday a place where Christian wives of all ages can ponder difficult subjects in a calm and “thinkful” manner.
See you on Monday!
“...let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands ...”

Will we see you on Monday?
