Choosing the Path Less Traveled

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

Women who choose to marry and bear children have priorities clearly defined in Scripture. Some do choose to be employed, but those who devote themselves to home and family, choose a selfless and valuable role that should not be belittled.

It takes a willing, persevering heart to stay at home. It is not a position that gains notoriety, or one that will place you on network news. Although some do not see it as important, it is in God’s created order. Biblical manhood and womanhood are foundational for maintaining order and purpose.The guidelines for women, as well as for men, are grounded in timeless, historical and theological principles. Martin Luther said it this way:
What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. 
Have you chosen to go on the path less traveled by? It will make all the difference.
