1 Peter 3:1-12; Reminders for wives and husbands

These verses remind us that within the context of mutual trust and respect in marriage, there are important attitudes to maintain.  For wives, submission.  For husbands, gentleness.  For all, a harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted and humble spirit…not returning insult for insult but giving a blessing instead.  Again so much easier said than done but when we look back to the selfless example of the Lord in the proceeding verses, it can motivate us in His power to accomplish these attitudes in relationship.
