The leader of the home

2 Corinthians 11:13
The head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

The Bible makes it clear that the husband is to be the leader in his home, yet he has no right to run roughshod over the opinions and feelings of his wife. He is to love her as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5:25) and to serve her unselfishly and compassionately. A man should include his wife in making mutually satisfying decisions, always working to incorporate her perspectives and seeking compromise when possible. In situations where they simply cannot find common ground, Scripture gives the man the prerogative—and responsibility—to choose and lead. Yet in this case, he must be more sensitive and considerate than ever, bearing in mind that he will ultimately answer to God not only for his choices, but for his treatment of his wife.
Dr James Dobson

When God created the world, He created according a very specific pattern.  When we live according to God’s pattern, we experience His blessing.  Husband and wife have been created as equals, but with different functions.  Let us live according to God’s pattern and experience the blessings that come from Him.HAPPILY EVER AFTER
