Thought for the Day CMXIII

Ephesians Ch 5 vs 21-33 can be fairly contentious in that St Paul calls for wives to submit to their husbands, seeing the relationship as parallel to Christ and the Church. However, it needs to be pointed out that Paul also called for husbands to respect their wives and to love them. Love and respect means listening to them and taking into account what they say. Human talent being what it is, it is fair to say that one. Partner will have talents and personality traits the other lacks and vice versa, so what we have here is about a partnership of interdependency, and we need interdependency, especially in this day and age where there is too much anger and selfishness in the World
