A few years ago, I have had fun creating flow charts to show the consequences of our choices. Since I don’t have a lot of room, I create a general consequence to each choice. Of course, it can’t encapsulate every consequence for every choice of every person but they are created more to give pause to women for the choices they make, and hopefully cause them to think that they may be on the wrong track biblically.
Here is a flow chart I made on two different paths that mothers can make: a career path working outside of the home or a home path working inside of the home.
Now when I posted this, I knew women would be angry since they usually are whenever I write about women being keepers at home. Women have even accused me of having hatred for working mothers. No, I don’t have hatred for working mothers. I wouldn’t be trying so hard to reason with them to come home full time if I hated them. I would be spewing curse words at them and condemning them if I hated them.
I write about mothers being keepers at home since this is what the Lord has commanded that I do, and I know the best place for mothers who have children to be is in the home with their children. That’s it. I have no ulterior motive. I am not their judge. Yes, it offends working women but they must ask themselves why God’s Word offends them. Can it be that they feel some guilt? Of course they do. Every working mother I have ever talked to or heard interviewed on the television has guilt over leaving their children with others, plus their husbands are usually last on the totem pole of their time and energy.
Whatever choice any mother makes is between her husband, herself, and the Lord. They need to prayerfully study the Word while asking the Lord for wisdom; for it is Him who they will have to give an account for the choices they make in this life. They don’t have to answer to me, but I do have to answer for how I have lived my life and since God commands older women to teach younger women to be keepers at home, this is what I will continue to do.
Yes, I am thankful for the many female nurses who are working their tails off now due to this virus. I am sure they are exhausted. I know some nurses and they were exhausted before this virus with the long hours they must work but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t teach young women to be keepers at home. Children need and want their mothers. Yes, I know some women have no choice but this still doesn’t mean I am not supposed to teach truth. Single women and those without children in the home could be nurses. There’s a very good reason that God wants mothers to be home. All of His commands are for our good.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
