a Wife Work Outside the Home?
women do not realize how industrious they can be. As a wife and mother
myself I have come to know, through the knowledge given to me through
our Lord, that being a helpmeet to our husbands is more than taking care
of the children, cleaning and cooking, although these areas are all very
important, we must trust that God would want for us to serve our
families in other ways too.
I do know for
a fact that even though money may be tight, God
prefers that a wife and mother serve her family rather than employers.
When a wife and mother works outside the home, it upsets the balance of
the home in so many ways. Letís take a look.
Wife Who Works is Not Under Her Husbands Protection and Covering
a wife is outside the home working she is not in her own home and under
the protection of her husband. Some of you may find this
old-fashioned, but the truth is women fall under all forms of prey when
they work outside the home. Husbands are to protect their wives from
outside influences. Besides that, do you think a wife should submit her
talents and abilities to another man or woman instead of her husband and
family? That doesnít make very much sense does it? The only time a
woman should work outside the home, in my opinion, is when she is
working with her husband in their own business.
Becomes Vulnerable to Abuse and Sexual Advances
bet more than half the women on our marriage list have come under some
kind of sexual abuse, demands abuse, or office politics. Do you think it
is right for your wife to submit herself to an abusive, demanding man or
woman? Why put your wife through such turmoil as this? Not only is a
husband to protect his wife from physical danger but also emotional
danger such as this. A Christian woman should never be subjected to
anything that would emotionally put her in danger and weaken her faith
in Christ, and to do so is playing with fire.
Becomes Unequally Yoked With Unbelievers
you think it is an encouraging environment for a Christian woman to be
working with unbelievers? Should your wife allow her spiritual and
emotional self to be subjected to unbelief and rebellion? Over time
would not this atmosphere weaken her faith in the Lord? Iím not
talking about mature Christians who are strong in their faith, who serve
by volunteering their time and services to unbelievers. Iím talking
about subjecting your wife or a wife subjecting herself to a negative
environment just because you think you need the money! Every day women
are influenced to not be subjected to their husbands because of the
unbelieving women they work with all day. How discouraging is that?
Children Alone After School
mom is outside the home working then who is managing the home front and caring
for the children? No
matter what anyone says, motherhood
is the most important job!! It is so very sad that some women
feel that it is demeaning to stay home and be a wife and mother.
Parenthood is a serious and challenging role and it takes much more
patience, wisdom and womanly strength to be a mother than work at a job
any day! In my opinion, being a wife and mother is the most
challenging, important and fruitful career choice a woman can ever make.
Tired and Drained After Working All Day
mom comes home from working all day she is tired and hungry and needy
herself, but who is going to take care of her? Because of her busy
schedule how can she care for her family properly in the ways of the
Lord. Who is going to cook hot, nutritious meals, tidy the house, and
give love and respect to the rest of the family? You get the idea right?
Granted we do need certain things to survive and that takes money. But
what happens when we trust in God for our provisions. If our faith is
with God than he will provide. God knows what we need!
we put out trust and faith in God we come to realize what our talents
and abilities are and we allow our creative mind go to work. God's
work in our lives and marriage is seen through cause and effect. When we
trust in God for what we need we have more abundance and prosperity than
a mere job can give us any day! This is Godís blessings!
wife and mother is much more productive for her family being at home and
taking care of her family and managing the home front. So don't let
anyone tell you otherwise.
