A Working Mother

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 7, 2011

“She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks” (Proverbs 31:16-17).

Many moms out of necessity or by their choice, or a combination of both, work outside the home. God has gifted them to invest in the marketplace in a manner that is productive in business and that blesses their home. It’s not easy to juggle two full-time jobs, but Christ gives them the grace to carry on. Single moms in particular face challenges most of us cannot understand. They need prayer, encouragement, strength, and support.

Who do you know who is a single mom? How can you serve them with an anonymous financial gift, or by involving your children in helping with her yard work? A woman who carries all the domestic and marketplace responsibilities needs a community of Christ followers as friends and confidants. If you are a child of a single mom take the initiative to work around the house and outside the home. Support her with service.

As a working mom do you see your workplace as your ministry, or just a way to make a living? Working moms have a unique opportunity to represent Christ in their career. People will ask, “How do you balance work and home responsibilities?” This is an open door to brag on your husband’s support, and describe the importance of your faith in the Lord. “If someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it” (1 Peter 3:15b NLT).

Working mothers bring grace, wisdom, and stability to work environments. If you are an employer encourage them with flexible time schedules and bonuses for a job well done. Facilitate for them a career culture that keeps family first when life/work priorities clash. Working moms deserve recognition and reward. Their Savior is smiling and so should we.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might” (Ephesians 6:10 NASB).

Who do I know who I can encourage in her career by connecting her to a mentor?

  3. I’m the manager of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to broaden my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the very best way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anybody at all could recommend a qualified web-site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Data I am currently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best option and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my search for something regarding this.
