by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – Rising to the Challenge
Editor’s note: Debi loves to call women lazy and berated them, but apparently men get a pass for being lazy. It all boils down to the wife being fully submissive. Yeah, like that’s going to work.
So what can a woman do if her husband wants her to send their children to public school and go to college? She can become a Proverbs 31 wife. She can study, learn, grow, and become successful. She can win his confidence in her as a teacher of his children. In all my 40 years of ministering to families, I have never seen a husband (no matter how stiff-necked and against homeschooling) who didn’t respond with thanksgiving when his wife became a Proverbs 31 woman.
A woman might complain that her husband is lazy, fleshly, and all manner of negative things. I can’t guarantee the wife of the lazy husband that he will change in response to her renewal. However, almost all men want what is best for their families, so a man will respond positively to his wife’s wishes if she proves to be an able partner in his designs for the family.
