“Busy at Home”: How does Titus 2:4-5 apply today?

12 Jun


Sometimes there are posts which are very important to share.  This is one of them, but it must be said that everything that Margaret Mowczko provides much to think about.

Did you think you knew what Titus 2:4-5 (about women staying at home) meant?  Think again.  There’s much to the story.

Some Christians in westernised countries seem to long for an earlier time when most women stayed at home and stayed out of the workforce.[1]  Some of these Christians even believe that the Bible teaches that the woman’s primary domain is private, in the home, caring for her husband and children – the presumption being that most women will marry and have children.  They also believe that the man’s primary domain is public, outside of the home – working for money.[2]   The only time the Bible mentions that women should stay at home is in two instructions regarding young women.[3]  In this article I look especially at Paul’s instructions in Titus 2:4-5(read more)

    “… train younger men to love their wives and love their children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home [mowing the lawn, changing nappies, playing with the kids, cooking their share of meals and doing the vacuuming], to be kind [or good], and to be submissive to their wives, so that no one will malign the word of God.” (Titus 2:4b-5.)

    Written by Mrs Paul.

    Not so bad after all is it.
