The Bible Archive reflects on I Peter 3:7. You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered. Most discussions of this verse deal with whether the weaker vessel language that this translation hides is misgynistic. Rey instead focuses on the second half of the verse. Not showing honor to a believing wife hinders prayers.
I Was Just Thinking... points out something that often disturbs me. It's one thing to acknowledge that we're imperfect in full honesty and humility. It's quite another to delight in it and wear it as a badge of honor. There's even a fine line between the two. At the end of Philippians 3, Paul describes the enemies of Christ glorying in their shame. The first section of Ephesians 5 describes the deeds the believers Paul was writing to had formerly walked in, saying it's shameful even to speak of them in private. It's shameful to treat our being like the world as something to be proud of. How backwards is that?
