The Heavy Burden Men Carry

When we were young and raising children, Ken worked extremely hard and has for many years. He was gone traveling half of the year and when he was home, he spent many hours in his office every day talking to clients and working on scheduling, building plans, etc. He took the job that God gave him to work hard and support his family very seriously.

My dad was the same way. He traveled almost an hour to work each day and got home every night around 7:00 after leaving around 6:00 in the morning. He never wanted my mom to work and knew he was the one to support his family.

Men carry a heavy burden of supporting their families, yet this is the way God intended it to be. As Melissa in the chat room said, "An older woman encouraged me when my husband was working TWO full-time jobs. She said, 'He was made to work. He can handle this.'" This is why God gave them ten times the testosterone and a much more muscular build than women. They are also much stronger than us and have more energy to accomplish the role that God gave them. 

Women, on the other hand, are the "weaker vessel" according to God's Word. God gave us the role of bearing and nurturing our children. He gave us the role of WORKING in our home; not being lazy and entertaining ourselves. It takes a lot of time to train and discipline children, keep a neat and tidy home, fix nourishing meals and be a help meet to our husbands, but since our work is in the home, we don't have to deal with the stress that our husbands have to deal with in meeting deadlines and making their bosses, clients, etc. happy and satisfied plus bringing in enough income to support a family. 

Why women ever fought for the right to leave their homes so they can have careers is beyond me. Why would they want to take up the man's curse along with their own of pain in childbirth? It ended up being a big, fat deception from Satan since women thought they could find contentment outside of the home. They are not built for careers in the same way that men are. There is nothing in the Bible that matches the feminist's agenda: having careers outside of the home; having equal pay with men; being able to do what men do; birth control that gives a woman the right to decide when to have children; abortion when pregnancy was inconvenient; preschool so they could work, etc. Show me one verse that supports the feminist's agenda! You won't find one so please never say you are a feminist if you love the Lord and His ways, since feminist's ways are completely contradictory to His plan for women. Instead, believe God's Word and His ways for men and women.

Thanks to the feminist's movement we also have many divorces. Since women so badly wanted careers, they expect their husbands to be "mommy's helper" and are upset with them if they are not. They are trying to find satisfaction outside of the role the Lord has given them and they will NEVER find it there. 

God's role for you, women, is very good. If your husband works his tail off providing for you, thank him! Spend his money wisely. Live within his income. Make sure you always make him a priority in your life. Build him up to your children and others. Providing an income for your family is a heavy burden they must bear all of their lives, so instead of complaining {which is sin}, express your appreciation often to them for this is God's role for men.

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Genesis 3:17-19
