The automobile has kept many women out of their homes almost as much as careers do. They are out and about shopping, eating out, running their children all over the place, going to Women’s Bible studies and conferences, and being anywhere but home.
In biblical times before cars, young women had the habit of doing this: “…they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not” (1 Timothy 5:13) so God commanded they marry, bear children, and guide the home instead.
Does this mean you can never be away from home? No, but the majority of your time should be at home. It takes a lot of time and effort to raise godly offspring, be a help meet to your husband, and do all it takes to keep a home running smoothly and your family well-fed. All of these need to be your priority, not running around like a chicken with their head cut off. This is how I was before I became so ill when I was 30 years old. My illness forced me to be home almost full time, and I can look back and see how good it was for my children. They always knew where I was. I was always available for them.
Be home and work hard there, young women. It’s where God has called you to be. Be true, content keepers at home; for godliness with contentment is great gain!
I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
1 Timothy 5:14
