Have you ever read articles that have titles like this “what women should,” “how women should,” “when women can,” and all those articles in those flavour. I know you must have.
What spurred this post is when I saw another of these articles on one of the WhatsApp groups I belong too. It left me wondering “why women?”
Most of these articles give a list of things women are to do to make sure they have a good home. How they are to do things to make their husbands happy and what have you.
Am I saying it is wrong? Definitely not. But most of the time, the tone of the message the author tries to pass across puts the burden of home making on women. The way I see it, it’s as if the man is just to sit and fold his arms because the woman has the magic wand that will make all things fall in place.
It doesn’t work like this. The way it takes two to tango is the same way it takes to make a marriage work. When one person is left to do everything, things will never work because the other person will effortlessly make things not work.
Can you see the need for the question why women. The articles on the ‘hows’ and ‘whats’ and ‘whens’ are harmless, but they ‘harmlessly’ create issues in the home.
I hope you get my drift.
Jesus at the center makes the home godly and happy.
