The Women of Jerusalem

Women holding babies. Mothers and their children. What happens to the next generations without good and God fearing mothers. Jesus, so many mothers have failed to be good mothers. So many working mothers busy earning a living. Leaving behind their children to househelpers. Failing to teach them Christian values. In Jesus time many women stay home being good housekeeper. The husband works in the field. Jesus said, weep not for me, but for your children. Yes, untold misery and suffering for the next generation. The evil that we see is far more unimaginable. Life will be harder and people will be more wicked. Pray for good mothers more dedicated to their children than for their own career. Inspire mothers to give more love to their children. Women of the world, where is your role to built good citizens? Women of courage. Women who needs recognition and liberation.

Hi ajinomoto! I agree with you that Christian mothers should stay home and raise their children. Sometimes this isn't possible for many reasons. For myself, personally I stayed home and home schooled all 3 of my kids. I'm still home schooling one of them. But there was a time, just recently where I had to work outside the home to help pay bills. I'm happy to say that I'm back home now to be here with my son. It's now very fulfilling for me. Earlier on in my mothering days I just didn't appreciate my role and would find ways to try and escape. I'm very sorry that I did that now, but that's in the past and I won't dwell on it. Another reason I can think of that moms work outside of the home is they had set goals for themselves. Then a baby appears in the picture and they're not quite ready. They've gotten married, bought a house, bought a few cars and can afford these things as long as both husband and wife are working. It would be easy for us to tell them to sell the expensive cars, sell the house and move somewhere more affordable. But change isn't easy - even if we know it's the right thing to do. I believe that all good mothers are doing the best they can with whatever situation they are in. I do believe that if a Christian mom has a choice she should stay home with her children. But that's not my decision to make for her. It is between God, her husband and her.

Thank you for your comment. I know financial reasons and choice of lifestyle are making family life more difficult. It is a great sacrifice to stay home and care for your children. Prayer time is important.
