Marriage Hierarchy (GEN. 3:16)
Marriage comprises of two persons yet has leadership setting (hierarchy) just like the government setting.
The Husband – Hierarchy In Marriage
I want to start by saying no female in any office who will give a maximum respect to her boss. No matter the situation in the office, whether been offended or not she still submitted to her boss. The big question is why is this character not display in our marital homes by the wives?
The answer to this question is not far-fetched. Among other reasons, in the office, the woman sees her self as a powerless entity which can be thrown out without question from anybody to the authority. I call this the fear of the unknown. But in the marital home, there are many questioners. The questioners’ comprises of the institute owner (God) and the society at large. Secondly, many women got married for the wrong reasons as such, they don’t know how to handle the office of the woman in marriage.
The Man Position In Marriage.
(Gen 3:16), the husband is seen and endorsed biblically as the head in the marriage hierarchy. Also, the husband is seen as president, governor, superintendent of the wife and family in all ramifications. (Eph. 5:23, 1 Cor. 11:3). It is, therefore imperative for the wife to consider the respect, honor and the preferential treatments given to directors and bosses of difference offices and accord such to her husband as the husband demand or need double of such honor and treatment from his wife and family.
The Woman Most Honour.
Many wives honor their boss at work, even their pastor or other spiritual fathers and mother in Christ, with other eminent personalities in the society, but at home their husband is valueless and without regard, this is sinful. Your services to God as a housewife is incomplete without due respect and perfect service to your husband. The husband should and must be seen, see and seeing as a king with all the attribute of selfless service from the wife, this is the foundation for long-lasting and lifetime marriage. (1 Peter 3:5-6).
The wife – Hierarchy In Marriage
It is certain that, in a class of two persons, one will take first and the other is definitely second. So, the wife is in the lower chamber. (Eph 5:22-23). As such, she should and must be treated with care and love. (Eph. 5:28&33, 1 Pet 3:7, Col. 3:9). The wife is the deputy in all ramification. The governor can’t leave office without the deputy well informed. Because the problem might emanate deficiency of solution or control if the deputy is not aware of the superior vacation from the office.
Also, the wife is far closer to the husband than that of the deputy governor. Also, she is clothed with great responsibility than any other important persons you may think off.
I want to say here that marriage is a special meal. This meal is given to men by God. And it needs special spices for its aroma to evolved
