. . . the Gospel makes little sense to the human mind. Christ didn't come to be served. He didn't come to demand recognition. He came to be the least and last and lay down His life for His sheep. You want to be equal with God? Die [to self]. Why is God's role for women so important? Because God says when we reject it, we blaspheme His Word (Titus 2:5).
At it's heart, homemaking is about accepting God's Word and laying down our lives for the brethren. It is about keeping our eyes firmly fixed upon Christ, who calls us to serve Him in the seemingly insignificant tasks of everyday living, training the next generation. . . and living for Christ's "well done" rather than for the praise and recognition of others.
And that's the secret to a happy and blessed life. Die to live.
