“If the husband…

“If the husband is the head of the wife, as [Eph. 5] verse 23 says, let it be very plain to every husband that this means primarily leading out in the kind of love that is willing to die to give life. As Jesus says in Luke 22:26, “Let…the leader [become] as one who serves.” The husband who plops himself down in front of the TV and orders his wife around like a slave has abandoned the way of Christ. Jesus bound Himself with a towel and washed the apostles’ feet. Woe to the husband who thinks his maleness requires of him a domineering, demanding attitude toward his wife. If you want to be a Christian husband, you become a servant, not a boss.” John Piper – Desiring God.
