There is no doubt our society has hit an all-time high with doing; doing this, doing that, doing whatever. It didn’t hurt that the feminist movement aided in turning people into materialized robots. Give mothers and their adult daughters a longer to-do list than they already have.
Women should assert themselves aggressively and powerfully avoiding any natural instincts of being a “woman.” Women’s lib decided listening, being open hearted to the hurting or exercising passivity at any length should be denounced.
God gave women the ability to listen well, receive others in need and honor God in everything they accomplish whether that is staying at home or working outside of the home according to his will.
He wants us to be the shoulder for others to cry on, enjoy the love and blessings that come with a family and use her wisdom as God leads in the world market. God never told us not to work outside of the home but when our family, husband and/or children suffer at the hands of one who chooses to place it first, it should be addressed. But, he also never told us to go to the extreme where we end up “burned out” or exhausted.
When we allow God to lead us, give us direction and bring out in us the talents he has placed in us, he will provide whatever we need.
He has given Godly women the ability to hold positions in his church to further his gospel. With the need in the world as it is, church work can be infinite. Even then and maybe more so in this extension of liberty we need to set examples of stability and steadiness. It is all too easy to get caught up in the activities of the giver instead of spending time alone with him.
Having had the opportunities to do all of the above, I can tell you success is not found behind a desk, filling up a large apartment complex with renters, or delivering lunches to office complexes. While these are achievements in their own right, there is no satisfaction like a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The victory lies within his presence opening up a world most people never find. Within that domain are the secrets and solutions to all of the questions, requests and essentials we need to do whatever he created us to do. That can and should lead us to the vocation(s) he has trained us to accomplish.
Finally, the Proverbs 31 woman reminds me of the “gal” who has found and lives in the center of God’s will.
And that my readers produces winners.
