Why do women take on more than they can handle in the name of 'ministry'?
Could it possibly be that they do not realize that they are running themselves into the ground and taking their families along with them?
Wait, let me correct that, they don't always take them with them----many times they are left behind. Husbands left to cook and clean for themselves, children left neglected, homes uncared for--- all in the name of Jesus!
Yes, you see, because there are many Bible studies to go to, woman's retreats to attend, Sunday schools to teach and so forth. There are prayer meetings to attend and the womens conference that can't be missed all the while hubby has barely seen his wife for days. The children don't mind being abandoned...after all you're doing it all for the Lord.
How can we watch over our homes as scriptures upholds if we are never there? How will we know the state of our children's hearts if we are never with them and always 'chasing' after godly pursuits? Wives today seem to have forgotten what God has ordained as their most significant role.
So if you are running all over town and neglecting your home, marriage and children, please know that it doesn't glorify the Lord. Let us remember to not confuse activity with accomplishment. We must stop the madness, come back to our senses and return home to our families.
"Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good and not harm all the days of her life." Proverbs 31:11
