Equality Between Men and Women

March 10, 2021 Save Article


“…submitting to one another in the fear of God.”

(Ephesians 5:21)


First Corinthians 11:3 says, “…the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” Sometimes we get confused about what it means to be the “head” of the family.

Anything with no head is dead and anything with two heads is abnormal. Just because the man is the head doesn’t mean that the wife is inferior. Both are equal before God. Both bear the image of God. Both are heirs of the grace of life.

But while male and female are equal, God has given them different roles. In the family, men have been given the role of leader.


How would our world function if no one was in charge? How would your body function without your head? Pray for leaders, first in your home and church, then in your community, state, and nation.
