Ephesians 5:22-33 TPT
For wives, this means being devoted to your husbands like you are tenderly devoted to our Lord, for the husband provides leadership for the wife, just as Christ provides leadership for his church, as the Savior and Reviver of the body. In the same way the church is devoted to Christ, let the wives be devoted to their husbands in everything.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as it is fitting in the Lord. ~ Colossians 3:18 NKJV
And to the husbands, you are to demonstrate love for your wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us, his bride.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them. ~ Colossians 3:19 NKJV
Husbands have the obligation of loving and caring for their wives the same way they love and care for their own bodies, for to love your wife is to love your own self. No one abuses his own body, but pampers it—serving and satisfying its needs.
For this reason a man is to leave his father and his mother and lovingly hold to his wife, since the two have become joined as one flesh.
Marriage is the beautiful design of the Almighty, a great mystery of Christ and his church.
So every married man should be gracious to his wife just as he is gracious to himself. And every wife should be tenderly devoted to her husband.
If you want to be wise, listen to your parents and do what they tell you, and the Lord will help you. For the commandment, "Honor your father and your mother," was the first of the Ten Commandments with a promise attached: "You will prosper and live a long, full life if you honor your parents." ~ Ephesians 6:1-4 TPT
Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. ~ Colossians 3:20 NKJV
Don't exasperate your children, but raise them up with loving discipline and counsel that brings the revelation of our Lord.
