Her Feet at Home by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One thing the feminist movement has done so successfully is to stir up discontent among women who have responsibilities in the home.

My mom had six children in her first five years of marriage. She had an incredibly hard job, but she was content to serve in the role God gave her. She told me that she didn’t know she was supposed to be unhappy until others told her she shouldn’t have to deal with all the demands on her.

Her life stands in contrast to the women I know who look for satisfaction outside their home. While thinking they’ll find more meaning and fulfillment, they usually only find more stress.

Proverbs 7 describes a foolish woman and says, “Her feet never stay at home.” Has God called you to be a keeper in your home, serving your husband and children for His glory? Let me encourage you to stay with this important work. Keep serving for His glory and your ultimate satisfaction.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
