Bible verses for reflection 📚

Ephesians 5:22-33: “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord… Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…”

Genesis 2:24: “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”

Matthew 19:6: “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

1 Corinthians 7:3-4: “The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife.”

Philippians 2:3-4: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”

Galatians 6:2: “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Proverbs 15:1: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
