Christian Women Must Orient Every Pursuit Towards Being a Wife & Mother

When a Christian woman is asked what she is doing, her answer may be exactly what some pagan feminist might answer. “I’m studying for a physics test. Why?” But when a Christian woman is asked why she is doing what she is doing, her answer must radically diverge from any answer which an unbeliever could give. Her answer, in other words, should be oriented to the home. “I am studying physics in order to glorify God through being a godly and effective wife and mother.” In other words, she must relate her activity to the scripturally-assigned purpose for that activity. If, for example, she is a younger married woman, she is responsible to integrate what she does with what Paul assigns as the general duties of younger married women.
