A Pearl of Wisdom…

1 Timothy 2:11-14

Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

 

Ladies, this is not coming from an overbearing man who dislikes your gender.  This direction comes straight from God.  Women need to learn their God-given roles in the church and stay in their own lanes.  They have so much to do already without burdening themselves with something that God did not design for them anyway! 

I am so happy that God made me a woman.  I had the pleasure of experiencing pregnancy, childbirth, rearing children, and now I am looking forward to playing with my grandchildren.  I have had the pleasure of supporting and encouraging my husband, keeping our home as pleasant as possible, and keeping myself appealing to my husband.  I have been nurturer, a counselor, a helpmeet, and a source of comfort.  For those things, I am eternally grateful to God.  Never would I nor should I desire the role that the Lord designed for my husband and the other men that He has called into leadership.

Thank you Lord, for my role as a woman.
