No one in your home should be better at submitting to Scripture than you. Hophni and Phineahas, the two sons of Eli, were priests, but they were also wicked men with no regard for the Lord. Neither would turn from their sin, even when confronted by Scripture. God is not pleased with spiritual leaders, or husbands, who harbor sin:
At that time I will carry out against Eli everything I spoke against his family — from beginning to end. For I told him that I would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons made themselves contemptible, and he failed to restrain them. (1 SAMUEL 3:12-13)
Note the security this submission to Scripture brings to your realm. On the other hand, failing to deal with sin brings disorder, confusion, and fear. It tramples your wife’s convictions and puts a stumbling block in the pathway of oneness. Submitting your character to Scripture builds your wife’s trust in you.
