Do everything for Christ includes family life. This is Paul's next topic in Colossians. He makes use of a household code, but turns it on its head by addressing society's "lower" members first: wives, children, and slaves. He calls them to obedience, as well as husbands, fathers, and masters. Household codes require cultural translation. Ultimately, they are less rigid rules for family power dynamics than case studies in how close relationships work. The general rule is that we should elevate those around us.
