Serious Wisdom From Steve Baugh

How does a modern wife submit while retaining her God-given integrity as a fellow heir of life and fellow citizen with the saints? I think Paul answers that in 5:15: She submits with wisdom and careful reflection on biblical truths that bear on the issue.

Ideally, this whole issue [of submission] never becomes a problem or an issue between a man and wife when a godly husband lovingly cherishes his wife as Christ cherishes the church. But both wives and husbands must pray for and exercise wisdom in their submission and love.
