Heavenly perspective for wives, 

“Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.” (Ephesians 5:24)

The church is the glorious bride of Christ. Thus, the apostle holds up the church’s submission to Christ as the model for a wife to imitate in loving her husband. The sacredness of a wife’s submission to her husband is the visual demonstration of the love between the church and her Savior. Wives remember, true beauty is internal, “a gentle and tranquil spirit, which is precious in God’s sight. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God beautified themselves, by submitting to their own husbands” (1 Peter 3:4, 5).
