1 Corinthians 7:1-4 Husband And Wife. 14 Apr 2024

1Co 7:1 Now for the questions about which you wrote.
Yes, it is a good thing for a man not to touch a woman;
2 yet to avoid immorality
every man should have his own wife
and every woman her own husband.
3 The husband must give to his wife what she has a right to expect,
and so too the wife to her husband.
4 The wife does not have authority over her own body,
but the husband does;
and in the same way,
the husband does not have authority over his own body,
but the wife does.

My wife has purchased me for a price. I have sold myself to my wife.

For One Another

I have entrusted to my wife authority over my body. And I have received some authority over her body. Not to harm. But to care for.

And see: my wife cares for my body. I am eating well and I am dressed well. Feel free to ask Millet (my wife) if she feels cared for by me.


Jesus, teach me healthy relationships.
