Arrogance is

self-reliance.

humility is interdependency.

This living planet is full of life. (Male and female life.)

All life (and processes thereof supporting life) on Earth is Interdependent.

No, life should not be male vs. female or female vs. male…a competition (which leads to discord, disunity, death!).  It’s male “and” female—a cooperative interdependence— that truly prevails and prolongs life on Earth.

Encouraging Well-Functioning Relationship Readings…:)

Just before creating a wife for the first man, God said: “It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.” (Genesis 2:18) A complement is something that completes or makes perfect. Thus, God created the woman, not to be the same as the man or to compete with him, but to be his counterpart. Together, they could fulfill their divine commission to have children and fill the earth with their own kind.Genesis 1:28.

To enable the woman to fulfill her role, God gave her the ideal physical, mental, and emotional attributes. When she uses these wisely and lovingly, she contributes immeasurably to the success of her marriage and helps her husband feel content and emotionally secure. In God’s eyes, such a fine woman is worthy of praise.Proverbs 31:28, 31.

“Wives, be in subjection to your own husbands.”1 Peter 3:1

Divine Commission…sounds sweetly simple to me: make love/make life:)

{Non-divine ways of functioning…(make hate/make death).}

Husband’s role:

For a family to function well, someone has to make final decisions on matters. The Bible assigns that responsibility to the husband. But that does not entitle him to be an autocrat or a bully. Nor does it allow him to shirk his responsibilities, thus eroding his wife’s respect for him and imposing a needless burden upon her. Rather, God expects him to work hard to care for his wife and to assign her honor as his most intimate and trusted companion. (1 Timothy 5:8; 1 Peter 3:7) “Husbands ought to be loving their wives as their own bodies,” says Ephesians 5:28.

A husband who truly loves his wife values her abilities and talents and respectfully considers her views, especially on matters that may affect the family. He should not insist on his way simply because he is the family head. When the godly man Abraham rejected his wife’s sound advice on a family matter, Jehovah God said to him: “Listen to her voice.” (Genesis 21:9-12) Abraham humbly complied, and his family enjoyed peace and unity, as well as God’s blessing.

“A husband is head of his wife.”Ephesians 5:23.

Being single is one gift. Being married is another gift. All of us have differing gifts, how we choose to use these brings…strife or peace…on ourselves and on all of humanity/fellow-fragile-life. (Obviously, this post is regarding/discussing the gift of marriage.)
