It’s a fairly common piece of advice given to moms. It’s thrown out by your friends, older moms, at homeschool meetings, Mom nights out, baby showers, etc. Moms are told that it’s their job to work themselves right out of a job.
And it’s not true. The Bible is very clear that we are all created to work. It is not your job to work yourself out of a job.
It is certainly true that our children of both sexes must learn how to manage a home; the cleaning, the cooking, the shopping, the finances. But it is definitely not true that our children should be running our home.
In this episode, I give you the Biblical perspective on working at home, why your children should not be in charge of running your home, and a very personal story on how I got way tangled up in some wrong thinking in this area.
