My youngest son is a student at Biola University. Over the weekend he attended a conference and he came home very excited about something new he had learned in one of their sessions together.
"What does a head do?" he asked me.
"Uh...it makes decisions," I answered.
"That's how we see it, but back when the Bible was written they saw the head as the source of nourishment because that's where people ate their food."
That's when he opened up his bible and showed me the verse in Ephesians where Paul says that the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is head over the church, but then he pointed out a verse I had not noticed before:
"After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body." [Eph. 5:29-30]
