Do Wives Need to Work?

Posted on

This may pose a different light of the Bible to everyone. The question of women having career and work always intimidate the wives especially mothers. Even though it is wonderful to be with our children at home, I realize another element of the Bible often are laid aside. Proverbs 31, which is the Old Testament. May this impart wisdom to the women, soon to be wives and even mothers.

Do you believe in taking care of your parents financially and physically during their old age? My friends’ and my mothers are good examples and inspirations to my friends, siblings and I. Having enough money can

  1. Contribute to the house loan;
  2. Care our parents financially;
  3. Secondary income in case of husband unemployment.
  4. Touch wood in case husband passes away due to accident or sickness. Therefore, we need to pray for our husbands’ well being and protection. Our younger days were filled with the reality of the pangs of desperation. We have been observing the struggling widows making their ends meet to feed their children. Our parents discuss about the widows’ lifelong journey and succeed to care their children. This is a good news.

Then we can feed the children and provide them with good education to increase their employability skills.

Everyone, please read the Bible clearly who are at risk. The widows and the orphans. Does it mean the grown up children do not need to take care of our old aged parents who take care of us with love to grown ups? Remember who strengthen our feeble hands and legs during our younger days.

Some of my friends and my mothers work. When our dads are having a hard time to earn the money, our mothers use their money to provide for the family and continue our education. They can still help the poor who are in need. So that the poor can stand up and help others.

Does it mean wives no need to work? Please read and digest Proverbs 31 and share your feedback on this issue. I know this is the harsh facts of life I am sharing throughout my friends’ and my lives. It is the reality of life and we see God’s goodness and providence though we receive Christ in our late teens.

Many women of faith love to quote that earning money is the husbands’ responsibilities whereas house is the the wives’ responsibilities. Does this exempt them from helping financially? However, the book of proverbs 31 and my mother’s life inspire me. My bunch of friends have similar predicament too. Our mothers enable to continue our education from college to bachelor honours when our dads were going through financial difficulties. Our parents believe to equip us with the fishing rod instead of giving us the fishes. Their best efforts and fishes are spent to strengthen the feeble new generation. We thank The Lord for our parents and strive to be a blessings and inspire others. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

As I was thinking of my lackness, I realized it is my husband’s strong point. His weakness is my strength. When I am bullied through words, my husband protects me with his words. I often lose words during confrontation. Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

It is great to live nearby. Within a certain time frame, we weave together upon the same theme. My haiku depicts the differences between couples and team efforts in the churches and even corporate world. This is due to hearing
1. Split churches
2. Divorces
3. Political existence in the corporate world
God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Missed Which Boat

Posted on

Wedding bells ring
Missed the career boat
New family caregiver
Problems with mother in law
Lifelong struggle of either finance and love or abuse
If husband’s contribution loses existence, wife ends as job seeker and
child care
Best to have partner around

Career minded
Missed the wedding boat
Parents caregiver
Problems in finding partner
Lifelong struggle of loneliness
If parents lose existence, loneliness creeps in
Best to have parents around

Which boat to miss?
Which path to tread?
A dilemma
A dilemma

Can’t we choose both?
To provide for children
Can’t we choose both?
Just like in Proverbs 31
To provide for the family
In case of rainy days

According to my observation, the women are always in a dilemma position. Either path seems imperfect. Each path has its own risk. The reason to use “lose existence” instead of “disappear” will give a stronger word. It can mean loses job, pass away or divorce.

Oh Eve, Oh Eve

Oh Eve, Oh Eve,
What had you done?
In the beginning of the world,
You were made perfectly by the Creator
You were made in perfect beauty by the Creator

But, you let the serpent
To beguile you
To tempt you
To let you astray
To sin against the Lord
And hurt your husband spiritually
And hurt your true spiritual life
And hurt your descendants
And let sin enter and rule this world

You are
Letting your Creator down
Letting your husband down
Letting yourself down
Letting your descendants down

Ultimately, bringing curse upon yourself
Bringing curse to the earth
Bringing curse to the nations birth out of you

But the Creator choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam also choose to forgive and bless you
But Adam, you, and your descendants
Have to bear the consequences of your actions
Have to pay painful hefty price of your actions
Though the Lord gave the promise
To strike the serpent’s head with the heel
From your future promised Seed

The promised Seed had come
He had struck and bruised the serpent’s head
He had bring love to the lost world
He had bring life to this condemned earth
He had bring hope to the mankind
He had bring salvation to this earth
He let the captives free for those who trust and depend in Him

Thank Him and praise His holy name.

For a woman will either bring
Success to her man
Or
Downfall to her man.

Young Eves
Choose Life
To secure your heart from going astray
To secure your salvation
To secure your man’s success
To secure your life as well
To secure your descendants’ life and success.

How to secure?
How to live successfully?
Humble yourself before Immanuel
Believe in the Messiah
Receive Him as Your Life and Saviour
Seek Him in your daily lives
By living according to His instructions
His instructions are like building your house upon the rocks.

May the Lord be upon you and bless you
As you live according to
His Words
His instructions
His perfect will.

For He knows that we are weak.
For He knows that we are from dust.

In response to the Scriptures in reference to Genesis 1-3, Isaiah 42:6-8, Proverbs 31, and the New Testament.

It suddenly starts as:
“Eve, Eve,
What had you done?
In the beginning of the world,
You were made perfectly by the Creator
But, you let the serpent
To sow discord and doubts
To beguile you
To tempt you
To sin against the Lord”

A Picky Husband

Posted on
A wife seldom cooks food with oil due to her concern to eat healthily. So also seldom cook fried food. A dish of steamed tofu, steamed fish, and even baked prawn without greasing oil. Everyday, she drinks a cup of low-fat with high-calcium milk.
She is quite an opposite of her husband who loves to eat tasty food without considering whether the ingredients will affect his well-being. He hates milk and refuses to take vitamin pills. Her son states that her mum cooking deteriorates. All day, he comments the food’s taste is not salty enough and even not sour enough. Finally, he participates in the kitchen preparation. He remarks that in order to make a tasteful and refined dish, there is no need to bother whether the consumed food is harmful for the body. He even laughs her for always drinking milk, but his body is stronger than her though he smokes.
One day, his sore throat worsens a lot until he is scared causing him to stop smoking. Around one month later, he doesn’t feel well and decides to take a full body medical check up. He brings his wife along to do the same as him. One week later, the report shows his bone calcium is lacking and mild high blood pressure. It is quite a contrast with his wife whose bone calcium is high and her hereditary diabetes is under control. Ultimately, he forces himself to gulp vitamins and sometimes milk.
The moral of the story is
Stop criticising people.
Listen to advises.
Reflect your own words and actions before criticising others.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
                                                                                                                  (James 1:19 KJV)
