If we’re to set good examples in our home, then as servant leaders we must keep focused on the word servant. As Chief Servant, we are to give in more often at impasses than anyone else. No one should choose to inconvenience themselves more often than we do, and no one should have a better attitude in serving than ours.
Jesus taught us submission by laying down His life for the sake of our relationship with Him, even though we were sinners. That being said, we husbands must keep the proper emphasis on the word leader as well. Yes, our responsibility as husbands is to command the ship along the course we’ve set as a couple, and though we must often serve by submitting our rights for the sake of oneness, we must never forget our duty to lead the ship safely into harbor.
