Good Help is Hard to Find

3 Dec

The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”


Many Christian men and women I encounter seem to have the mindset that a woman is not being a proper helper unless she is working outside of the home providing income.  In Genesis 2:15; God instructed Adam to work and take care of the garden.  When Adam was introduced to his helper – she was a help meet “suitable” to him.  She was to assist (help) him to produce what God has called Him to do.  In many homes, there is an empty space where the helper should reside, leaving husbands and children to fend for themselves. 



Yes a woman will find joy in pursuits outside of the home, however these are most enjoyed when her home is taken care of.
