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.

Soft

Self-Control & Simple yet
Outspoken when necessary
Full of Understanding
Temperate to Godliness

Out of the norm people who
Feels that soft people are weak mentally and can’t fight for themselves
The Bible shows the otherwise

“Sick of fight” was my pondering whenever I ever quarrelled with my brother and remembered about such incidents. And also sick with fighting dramas. Fighting among family members and friends are also sickening to me. That’s why I dislike war films and movies. Adding T would produce the acronym of SOFT. Are such people soft? My parents consider me weakest among my siblings, my husbands and friends consider me soft. I often struggled, feeling outcast and weak. When Jesus Christ enters into my life, I begin to be able to accept myself and hoping to live in His ways.

Rod

Rod is used to rebuke the wayward behaviour of children to wake them
Out of their own blindness that is
Dangerous to themselves and others.

Redeem the naive children
Out of the
Dangerous pitfall of sins that leads to death.
