Our pastor is preaching through 1 Timothy. Yesterday’s sermon was about a woman’s ministry in the church, which is predominately ministry to her family.
One of the comments that he made was that a family’s decision of whether or not a wife will work outside the home should be a ministry decision rather than a financial decision. Can the wife fulfill her ministry role in her home well if she is employed outside the home? This is a decision that individual families have to make for themselves.
