a divine calling

I’m loving pre-marriage counseling. I love the willingness of our pastor and his wife to meet with us and answer our questions and live by example. I love filling out forms, answering questions, and talking about my feelings. And I love the benefits I receive from being reminded of God’s design for marriage and the roles he has set out for husbands and wives.

Submission is the divine calling of a wife to honor and affirm her husband’s leadership and help carry it through according to her gifts… It is an attitude that says, ‘I delight for you to take the initiative in our family. I am glad when you take responsibility for things and lead with love. I don’t flourish in the relationship when you are passive and I have to make sure the family works.’ — John Piper
