When a married woman is from God, the Bible says, She submits to her husband as to the Lord. She always puts her husband first, as the church puts Christ first. She understands and support her husband by submitting to him in ways that honors the Lord. She does good to her husband and she is responsive to his needs. Even if her husband opposes any words about God, she wins him over by what she does.
No one else will have to say anything to him, because he will be captivated by her life of holy beauty. She is not concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. She does not draw attention to herself by the way she fix her hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes. She instead makes herself attractive by the good things she does. She clothes herself with the beauty that comes from her heart by being gentle and quiet. This kind of beauty will last, and God considers it very special.
She does not take over her husband’s authority and tell him what to do. She puts her trust in God and accepts the authority of her husband and does what is right without letting anything frighten her. She fulfills her husband’s sexual needs. She gives authority over her body to her husband and does not deprive him of sexual intimacy. She respects her husband. She thinks about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband. She is does not provoke her children, causing them to be discouraged and give up.
