Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.

This opening passage says it all—in relationships be respectful in behaviour and treatment of other people, and do so because Christ leads the way. How often today do we hear women belittling men in their roles? How often today do we witness men disrespecting women through verbal, emotional and physical abuse? Yes, we joke about men never asking for directions, or we tell ‘blonde’ jokes—but how respectful to the other are such jokes?

We can laugh with affection at our loved one’s idiosyncrasies, but when it becomes a put-down, maybe we need to rethink the latest joke or little dig. Positive actions begun in such small ways can become like the mustard seed, growing into a grand tree.
