There is a proverb that says that "The man is the head, the woman is the neck and wherever the neck turns, the head turns". My mom once said that the neck does not scream and shout and it does not put up a fuss, it just gently.....turns. As much as this is true, the head is extremely important. It houses the brain which tells the body what to do. So, if someone is brain dead, everything comes to a screeching halt. The rest of the body stops functioning. 

Likewise the neck, if it is broken, that's death, because the connection between the head and the body, where the other vital organs reside has been severed! GOD has given the man the mandate to be the head and that does not mean the neck is less important. 

In this beautiful life, I have come to realise that many a man has been changed and made socially presentable because of a woman. GOD in HIS infinite wisdom has made the man and the woman to work together, like my pastor will call it-partner in destiny. The man cannot succeed without his GOD-GIVEN wife, neither can or will the woman succeed without her GOD-GIVEN husband. There is no need to be in competition with your spouse, rather you should come together....and work together.... and succeed together!!!! 

The head has it's functions, and the neck as well. If the head starts performing the duty of the neck, that's a big error and if the neck starts performing the duty of the head, that's a complete "perversion of the divine order"! LET US HAVE THE UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD HAS MADE THE HEAD AND THE NECK TO WORK TOGETHER, NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER!
