Why do women "put God first" in marriage?
I, as a single woman, am to care for the things of the Lord.
I've been studying the Bible and watching Christians in their walk. And as I have been studying and learning, I have stumbled across this concept of putting God first in our lives. It sounds great. It really does! What Christian doesn't want to do the will of God?
What is the will of God for us women, single or married?
I find the best answer in 1 Corinthians.
1 Corinthians 7:34
There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
Why have we forgotten our calling?
What would happen if we got back on the right track?
Single women, care for the things of the Lord! I promise you, God will not let you down!
Married women, out of love for both you and your family, I encourage you to please your husband! Love him and put as much effort into him as you were when trying to put God first.
I am definitely not encouraging married women to forget about God. I am simply encouraging them to put their focus where God intended it to be. If you think about it this way, by pleasing your husband, you will be doing the will of God for you in your life!
God be with you and bless you.
