Expressions of Faith: Do Right

Do Right
For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
(1 Peter 3:5-6 NIV)


This is right after verses about women and what they wear, hairstyle, etc.

What’s interesting to me is that he uses the example of Sarah for doing right and submitting to her husband.

Submit here means to line up beneath.

Twice Abraham passes his wife off as his sister because of her physical beauty, but she still did “what is right and [did] not give way to fear.”

Submission is not a male or female issue. It is a discipleship issue.
