Woman was created for the man’s sake……..

When marriage is talked about in the Bible, the wife is always talked about first. The obvious truth is that the woman was created for the man, not the man for the woman……”for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.” (1 Cor 11:9).

So what is the sole purpose of the wife? Answer: “…….to glorify your husband. You were created for him.” Therefore, ladies, you should submit to your husband and his authority and use all of your energy to glorify him.

Does this ruffle some feathers? Ladies, what do you think?
