Peter gives direction is how we ought to live as Christians. Wives should be subject to their husbands and husbands should love, honor, and lead their wives well. In addition, we should love one another and strive for unity of mind.
As Christians, we are to be subject to all human institutions in authority over us and endure suffering even from those who are unjust. When we do good and live a life that is Godly and Christ like, we silence the ignorance of those who are causing our suffering.
