Oppressive Tasks?

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Long hours. Thankless tasks. No breaks.

To our modern ears, it sounds like being a housewife is an oppressive job. In Proverbs 31 we get a different picture. The homemaker described here isn’t seeking self-fulfillment. She isn’t interested in advancing her career, having her own bank account, or being known for her personal accomplishments.

Instead, she doesn’t seem to worry about her own interests and needs at all, focusing instead on the practical needs of her husband and children.

The Bible tells us about this woman:

  • She and her husband have food to eat and enough to share with others.
  • Her husband’s crazy about her. He brags to his friends about her.
  • She’s well dressed.
  • She’s emotionally stable.
  • Her children honor and praise her.

Doesn’t sound like an oppressed woman to me. Why not take some time to give Proverbs 31 a fresh look yourself?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
