“For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” (1 Peter 3:5-6)
The area of submission is “old-fashioned.” This verse even says it: “in the old time the holy women of old [were] . . . in subjection unto their own husbands.” That is, if you would like to take this verse out of context. This verse is not saying that submission is out of date – instead, it is saying that the godly women, those to look up to, those whom God approved, lived in submission/subjection to their husbands. Subjection means “subordinate, to obey” (Strong’s concordance). It is putting ourselves under our husbands. Though as single girls we cannot apply this today, we can prepare by applying it to our parents (specifically our dads) – obey them; put ourselves under them. Even if we are over eighteen.
