Ephesians 5:24 (Amplified Bible)
As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.
A selfish, self-centered, demanding wife can destroy a marriage. Ideally, the husband will be so loving and obviously dedicated to his wife’s well-being that she will find it a joy to defer to him. Normally, a husband and wife can come to agreement by graciously and honestly discussing their differences.
It’s said that, “A self-centered life will have a tendency to confuse its selfish desire with God’s will.” Think about those words for a moment, in how it applies to marriage. So often we’ll see what we want to see. And unless we’re on the alert, as we’re told to be in the Bible (1 Peter 5:8), we can easily slide into a self-centered way of thinking. We’ll justify and rearrange our thoughts and actions to fit the best conception of our actions that we can (much like using a kaleidoscope to see the prettiest design we can while using one).
