As a woman whose husband likes my hair short rather than long (and I prefer it short as well) I have often thought about this teaching from Paul. For me, if my husband approves of my hair length, then I am honoring him by doing as he wishes.

But also, I think about what I need to do if I am in a position to teach youth (or children). Would the length of my hair cause anyone to doubt other instructions in the Bible when they read this verse? I wore my hair long when I taught youth and children in church for this reason. Now I have a Muslim daughter in law. God, She covers her hair with a scarf and wears long sleeves. I ask God, how do I honor her culture/faith while still exercising liberty in Christ? So, if she is offended that my hair isn't covered, I will have her teach me to cover my head with a scarf as she does. It is all about my witness. I have no problem with wearing my hair long or wearing a scarf in church. That is not a difficult teaching for me to follow. I do not think that it should necessarily be done by all women in all churches. But we should have a willing heart to follow these inspired instructions from the apostles if it will allow us to be all things to all people, that some might come to believe.

Brother Spencer,

Thanks. And with that, Paul was speaking to a very corrupt church.

There's no other custom in any of the churches of God than what Paul just said right here. So Paul says if you want to be contentious, you're going against God!
