Men, Find Yourselves A True Help Meet!

Michael Pearl and Voddie Baucham counseled their sons to not marry a woman who wants to make her mark on the world and have a career. Find a wife who wants to be their help meet, not a help meet to a boss or a career. Find a wife who wants to be hands on with their children, teaching them and disciplining them full time, not leaving that job to someone else. Find a wife whose greatest desire is to be a wife and mother.

You see, women today have been sold a bill of goods. Most young girls aren't being raised to want to be a wife and mother. They are being raised to want to be men; to be independent, in control, strong, career-minded instead of home-minded. This has caused havoc in marriages, upon children, and upon society.

We are not called to be that way. No where in the Bible does it tell older women to teach young women to be loud, independent, or career women. It tells us to teach young women to love and obey their husbands {be a help meet full time to them}, love their children {be with them consistently teaching and training them}, be pure and chaste {have a gentle and quiet spirit that does not want to draw attention to yourself but to the Lord instead}, be keepers at home {KEEPERS AT HOME} and to be good {desiring to be home loving on their husbands and children and pointing them to Jesus}.

Women in this culture, including Christian women, hate this message for some reason. For me, when I finally heard it and understood it, it was like a breath of fresh air since it is all I ever wanted to do in life. I know for many of you who read my blog, it is the same for you. God's ways are good. They are for our protection, women. For our children's protection. For our husband's protection. NOT to make our lives miserable and keep us from the "good" things in life. All those supposedly "good" things in life turn out to be bitter in your mouth.

Satan doesn't want women at home. He wants them away from the foundation of any society. He wants them too tired to please their husbands and teach their children. He wants them giving their strength to others besides their families. Don't fall for the trap! Obey God. Come home, dear mothers. Come home

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
I Peter 3:3,4
