I am about to share what will disappoint a great many people but I do so based on my acceptance of all Scripture as inerrant. Doing otherwise, as so many have, puts self before God on deciding what is or is not the recorded Word of God. The position of the female sex in relation to man is to understand that she was created from man (Genesis 2:21-25) and made by God to help him (Genesis 2:18-20). Evolutionary thought says God did not create mankind according to Genesis chapter 2 and therefore these views are archaic and if in fact so then Genesis is irrelevant removing the idea of original sin and a need for Christ and His death and resurrection for our sins. A Pandora’s box that opens the world to a huge range of misbehavior that we are beginning to see society practice and accept today.
I believe Genesis is the perfect plan if understood properly. Marriage is for children and when blessed with children career should be secondary to that of a mother and homemaker. In my personal case my wife assisted in my office so that earnings more than offset her previous wages and she was always their for our children. Children that when once grown allowed me to retire and help my wife establish a long and successful career of her own.
A woman, despite those who desire to confuse gender, has special spiritual insight as noted in the example of the mother of Samson in Judges 13:23. Indeed a woman can show her faith in our Lord and Savior in such a manner (2 Timothy 1:5) that she will be forever held in the highest regard by her family for her being led to and leading others to a saving faith. What a wonderful thing it is when living according to God’s plan to be THE ROLE OF A WOMAN.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: A woman filled with the wisdom of God is a wonderful partner.
DEVOTIONAL VERSE FOR TODAY: Galatians 3:28 “woman is equal in Christ”.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord help us all to understand and accept Your will for our lives.
QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:
- Why is the role of man woman in such a state of turmoil?
- How does the theory of evolution affect the role of a woman?
- How does Galatians 3:28 fit with the role of women in Genesis 2?
- How can a woman impact lives spiritually
