A Tough Subject

I don't want to participate in any Mommy Wars here so I think I better clarify myself from the What's Your Worth post. I don't at all think it is wrong to have a job, the danger comes in when we let it become a god in our life and we are using it to get the value we need to get from Christ. The Proverbs 31 woman obviously had business interests outside of her home, but she was praised for fearing the Lord.

Some Moms work because they have to, some because they need the interaction of a job and it actually makes them a happier mom and some stay at home full time. I think everyone has to do what works for them and what God has called them to. I have a friend that works, she would rather not but it is a submission issue for her because her husband wants her to.

The only thing I know for sure is that God has to be the center and most important part of our lives. When we let a job or anything else (even our kids) get in the way, we've got trouble!
