“But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.” 1 Cor. 11:3
A man should strive to be worthy of the respect a woman is called on to give. A woman can submit to Christ and she can desire to fill the role God gave to her as submissive to the leadership of the man, but the man has the responsibility to be worth following. So rise up men to be godly.
