Here’s an interesting (and by interesting I mean odd) meme on husbands:
But what if there are no kids? Perhaps she can be the Hospitality Coordinator for their little congregation of two. Cooking, housekeeping, entertaining – all of this and more could be her responsibility under her husband/pastor’s leadership. And if they do later have kids she can then add Children’s Ministry Director to her titles because it’s a sure thing the Pastor won’t be hiring a Hospitality Coordinator to fill in for her; that would be bigamy. She’ll just have to find a way to take care of all that herself.
Or perhaps it would be best if the person who created the meme re-read Peter’s teaching:
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9.)
This is nothing new, of course. God told his people under the Old Covenant the same thing.
Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. (Exodus 19:5-6.)
The entire nation of Israel was to be a kingdom of priests (not the Levitical priesthood but a priesthood comprising all God’s people) for the benefit of the whole world. How much more under the New Covenant are all of God’s people, as Peter says, to be priests declaring God’s praises. Neither Moses nor Peter qualified their teachings by identifying men alone as the priestly ones declaring that praise.
And besides, nowhere in the Bible are we told that a family is a mini-church congregation. So I’d rather not hear unscriptural nonsense about husbands being pastors to their families, and read more teaching on God’s grace in bringing women and men both into the royal priesthood comprised of all believers in Jesus.
