Love is a sacred thing that runs deeper than a yearning in the pit of your stomach. It is a willingness to be trampled on for the sake of another, to suffer and die for the life of another. This is what God calls husbands and wives to do for each other. He wants them to die so the other might live. Thus, He commands wives to submit, even when their husbands don’t deserve it, and husbands to honor their wives as the treasured counterparts that they are.
