Wifehood, motherhood, and homemaking are not the beginning and end of my identity. While important, I am allowed to have other gifts and callings.
The phrase “biblical womanhood” is often a sweet Jesus Juke that silences the discontent that could lead us to the Cross.
We must base our understanding of meritorious womanhood on the Gospel that applies to real women.
It’s harder than the culture’s notion that we are perfect and more complex than the inner voice that screams that we are worthless worms in every way. Be kind to yourself.
Saying “I’m not like other women” just perpetuates the lie that real women can only fit into one stereotype. We’ve got to stop!
Biblical womanhood doesn’t begin and end in Proverbs 31. It begins in Genesis. It ends in Revelation. It is found in the entire redemptive story.
