by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Why Does Not Being a Keeper at Home Blaspheme God’s Word?
Editor’s note: Wow, so now leaving your home for a Bible study or women’s retreat can be seen as sinfully blaspheming ‘God’s Word’ too? You just cannot ever do anything to satisfy this woman’s ideas on a godly wife. Pretty hypocritical since she herself teaches women’s groups, the occasional women’s retreat and spends an enormous amount of time blogging. I guess the rules do not apply to everyone. Seems hypocritical from here.
“As ‘guardians of the house,’ as the Greek expresses. The oldest manuscripts read, ‘Workers at home’: active in household duties.” The opposite of this (blaspheme the Word) would be to not be home often due to having a job outside of the home or running here and there so a woman is not guarding what is coming into her home, what her children are reading, seeing, and hearing, and what influences are affecting them. This is our God-ordained role, women. We are to guard our homes from evil influences and work hard in the home, not allowing it to become a pigsty.
“House-wives, not spending their time in gadding abroad, but in looking to the affairs of their own families.” Women today can be described clearly as blaspheming the Word of God by the discontent they show when being home so they get involved in women’s Bible studies, retreats, shopping, etc. and don’t look over the affairs of their home and families. Few have time to fix nourishing and healthy foods for their families, spend time training their children towards godliness, and making sure the home is clean and tidy. Learn to enjoy being home and content where the Lord wants you to be.
