SPF 261: Two Questions to Ask When Culture Pushes Back on Motherhood

Today, I am addressing cultural push back I received with advice on how being a mother hampers life and confuses the value of one’s work. Plus I’m sharing how to dig deep and develop a biblical worldview on motherhood with two simple questions.

Show Notes:
Much of culture’s push back to biblical values and commands is rooted in humanism, which defies the authority and purposes of God. Psalm 128 teaches that those who fear the Lord and walk in His ways are blessed. Christians root their values and purpose in the Truth of the Scriptures which teach that God is the authority and lays out His ways for us to walk in.

When we read the Scriptures, we find our worldview including what to believe about motherhood. It should be wrapped up in the truth of God, and who we are according to him. While worldview involves our thoughts, it also involves our actions. And so here we have a full worldview of godliness, both the belief that there is prosperity when we fear and obey the Lord, and such a belief that our hands find themselves diligently doing these things. And from that there is prosperity.

“Religion and piety are the best friends to outward prosperity, giving God praise that it is so, and that we have found it so, and encouraging ourselves and others with it.” Matthew Henry 

Two questions you can ask are – by what authority and to what purpose? when considering the cultural push back to motherhood. 

Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
NKJV Psalm 128:3
