This was the final installment of the series I helped with at my congregation about servant leadership. This one is all about being servants at home.
When we look at passages like Ephesians 5 & 6 — passages that all about loving, about submitting, about obeying, and about patient discipline — this submissive love is what makes those things possible. Because we love our spouses, we take care of them and defer when needed. Because we love our parents, we show respect and obedience. Because we love our children, we teach them God’s word and we avoid hostility even when upset or angry with them. In all things, we prefer our family over ourselves because we serve them as Christ served us.
