A moral

The moral of the previous story is this:
A husband and a wife each have a role in a marriage.  Faithfully and happily serving in your role pleases God and somehow makes a marriage thrive..
The world likes to peddle "ultra-independence" to women, as if we are less valuable because we depend on our husband.  I assure you, God values women.  In a patriarchal society, He had 4 women listed in Jesus' geneology (Matthew 1:3,5-6).  That's big stuff.  And, He made sure that the same salvation offered to men, is offered to women.  It's level ground in front of the Cross.  Our husband will answer for how he led his family and we will answer for how we cared for our family.
