God intended women to spend their whole lives serving other people. Young women serve their children, their mothers, their husbands, and the community at large. Older women train and assist the younger women, and in some cases become church helpers. Women are not called to pursue motherhood for five years, get a career, and thereafter live for themselves. We are responsible for keeping society healthy and human. And for this, we get respect.From "The Way Home" by Mary Pride
Charity at home?
What an opportunity!
What a ministry!
(I do not endorse everything in this book, but it certainly did make me think! And I really liked this passage in particular.)
