Is It Right For Christian Women To Work In MNC Or Any Other Profession According To The Bible?

Is It Biblically Right For Wife To Earn Money?

Question: Is it Biblically right for wife to earn money...I mean to work in MNC or any other profession?

Answer: Greetings to you in Jesus wonderful name!

God called Adam to lead, provide and guide the family and for Eve to primarily manage the home, take care of the kids and help the husband to stay on course in his spiritual and physical life for the entire family to be blessed (1 Cor 11:3, 7, 8, 9-10; 1 Tim 2:8, 11, 12, 15). Therefore the primary beautiful calling for every woman is to bear children, teach the children come up in the way of the Lord, being old they are to teach other women how to take care of the Household, they are to take care of the home and then if they are resourceful can do business from home as this must be the sphere of influence and God's calling for their lives (1 Tim 5:14; Tit 2:3-5; Isa 66:7-9). God is happy and so glad when a woman submits to the husband, and as a wise woman she builds her home (1 Peter 3:3, 4, 5, 6; Prov 14:1).

Feminism that the world has created is not just the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes, but rather it has changed the role of women within the family, and aids and encourages her to take of the role of a man in the family, having no submission to husband but rather to live independently with her own income and do whatever pleases her.

Because of the change of role within even Christian families, Christendom has taken the path of the world and it has resulted in copying their attitudes and actions of feminism, which has caused devastation and peacelessness within the Christian homes. What a pity for the Church to follow the world and experience the same result within? Broken homes, rebellious children without godliness, lack of communication within the family, no time for devotion, mechanical life, no peace, no joy and no righteous living is the result of the influence of feminism inside the Church. Lord, have mercy on us!

Now as women work in MNC's, they have no time for the family, no time to spend with their children, so much time is spent to beautify themselves so that they can look beautiful in their offices to be well pleasing to their colleagues and to be accepted there rather than in their own homes and by their husbands. Only when there is communication and understanding within the family, and the unconditional love of God reigns within the family, only then the family institution thrives within its intended purpose that God has set up for it.

When men come to the home from work where the wife is also tired from work, they all will come to a state of zombie existence where whatever food they eat is mostly precooked, ready to eat food which is least healthy for all irrespective of age, as these are marketed with great eye catching labels but filled with all the toxins and chemical preservatives that damages the health of the entire family. Lack of sexual intimacy within the home will also increase as both the husband and wife are tired and always worn out with overworked and tight schedules to finish their projects for promotion in their offices and more incentives, which actually work towards office romances because that is the only place where the women gets time to communicate in a world of lack of meaningful and intimate communication back at home where it ought to thrive. What did God teach his children regarding this? "The husband and wife ought to give sexually to the other regularly, unless they take time to fast and pray for a certain amount of time. After those times, they ought to come together to be sexually intimate again, so that the enemy of our Soul Satan may not tempt us to fall in to fornication or adultery or in other lustfully perverse activities because of the lack of self-control to keep themselves within the one man one woman relationship of marriage for life." (1 Cor 7:5, Paraphrased). For the woman to give quality time to her husband, because she is a weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7), she must prepare herself with all the energy saved for intimate time within her family life, so that the husband can dwell with her in understanding, thus giving honor to the wife for her love and affection towards him and his children.

If the Biblical way of building home in a godly way is followed where women choose to stay at home and build their family, I believe the home will be a little heaven on earth, where there will be healing, health, love, joy, peace and righteousness which is the right way of living life (Rom 14:17).

Once a woman fulfills all the basics of building a Christian home, then whatever way she resourcefully uses the time left apart from those used for daily chores can then be used for the financial furtherance of the family or for her own self improvement.

We see the proverbs 31 woman, who is considered chaste woman, having or showing high moral standards is something that must be seen in details to get a gist of it to be applied for modern women of the 21'st century.

Melissa Ringstaff of beautifully classifies the following ten wonderful characters taken directly from Proverbs 31:

1. Faith – A Virtuous Woman serves God with all of her heart, mind, and soul. She seeks His will for her life and follows His ways (Pro 31:26, 29–31; Mat 22:37; John 14: 15; Psa 119:15).

2. Marriage – A Virtuous Woman marries only according to the will of God by marrying someone who is a believer and respects her husband given to her by God (2 Cor 6:14, 15; 1 Cor 7:39). She does him good all the days of her life. She is trustworthy and a helpmeet (Pro 31:11- 12, 23, 28; 1 Pet 3:1-6; Eph 5:22-33; Gen 2: 18).

3. Mothering – A Virtuous Woman teaches her children the ways of her Father in heaven. She nurtures her children with the love of Christ, disciplines them with care and wisdom, and trains them in the way they should go (Pro 31: 28, 26; 22: 6; Deut 6:1-9, 10-25; Luke 18: 16).

4. Health – A Virtuous Woman cares for her body. She prepares healthy food for her family (Pro 31:14–15, 17; 1 Cor 6:19; Gen 1:29; Dan 1:8-9, 12-15, 16; Lev 11).

5. Service – A Virtuous Woman serves and perform duties for her husband, her family, her friends, and her neighbors with a gentle and loving spirit. She is charitable (Pro 31:12, 31, 15, 20; 1 Cor 13:13).

6. Finances – A Virtuous Woman spends money wisely and always gives to God what belongs to Him without fail (Mal 3:10). She is careful to purchase quality items which her family needs (Pro 31:14, 16, 18; 1 Tim 6:10; Eph 5:23; Deut 14:22; Num 18: 26).

7. Industry – A Virtuous Woman works willingly with her hands. She sings praises to God and does not grumble while completing her tasks (Pro 31:13, 16, 24, 31; Php 2: 14).

8. Homemaking – A Virtuous Woman is a homemaker. She creates an inviting atmosphere of warmth and love for her family and guests. She uses hospitality to minister to those around her (Pro 31: 15, 20–22, 27; Tit 2:5; 1 Pet 4:9; Heb 13:2).

9. Time – A Virtuous Woman uses her time wisely. She works diligently to complete her daily tasks. She does not spend time dwelling on those things that do not please the Lord (Pro 31:13, 19, 27; Eccl 3:1-15; Pro 16:9; Php 4:8-9).

10. Beauty – A Virtuous Woman is a woman of worth and beauty. She has the inner beauty that only comes from Christ. She uses her creativity and sense of style to create beauty in her life and the lives of her loved ones (Pro 31: 10, 21–22, 24-25; Isa 61:10; 1 Tim 2: 9; 1 Pet 3:1–6).

Thus I would like to conclude saying, that a proverbs 31 virtuous woman is a person who have no lack of gain in whatever she does, and primarily takes care of her husband until he dies, she works with her own hands to bring imported tasty food from abroad like a merchant ships, she rises early in the morning and provides food for her family without fail and also a portion for her maidservants. These things discussed above are the primary calling that God has given every woman.

Proverbs 31 virtuous woman is also a creative and wise person to utilize the resources she has and multiplies the profit as a business woman, I mean she buys field and plants vineyard from its profit, she arms herself with financial strength, and understands the nuances of business life and uses her skill to bring change in the life of her family and all people around her, even during dark times of financial stress.

Proverbs 31 virtuous woman never forgets to do charity to the poor and needy. For the changing seasons of life, she prepares the needed things by planning and knowing the need before time. Such woman do not like her husband to be called the sole breadwinner of the household as the world does, but rather she gives freedom for the husband to pursue his passion even when it is done for dignity among people and devotion towards God rather than to use him for earning livelihood and sustenance.

She also makes her home as a multi-utility resource and production center to make products and sells them to merchants, and gives them options to choose from many varieties of products because of clear before thought for producing and marketing it. She does all things from strength and receives honor for doing it, and she rejoices in the future time to come for her dedication in service performed which God has blessed abundantly.

She is devoted to the Word of God and shows kindness because of it through her word of mouth toward others. She never stays idle without work and never eats just for the sake of eating, instead she watches over the complete household with faith in God's sovereign control over them all. She is very much a devoted family person, who is blessed by her children and praised by her husband who praise her even above all other resourceful woman because of experiencing her greatness and awesome love in his life personally. Finally the husband realizes that beauty just doesn't define her wife as like when she was young, but the inner beauty of a submissive heart that fears the Lord and respects every one, because of it the husband reaffirms that his loving virtuous wife excels and therefore is the secret for the ever increasing importance of his wife in his life and family. Finally the husband gives the wife the due respect and control over the family as a Manager of the entire Household, because all her works will prove beyond doubt her ability to win over the favor of all people who will praise her for it (Prov 31:10-31; Gen 3:16).

Much Blessings...
