“We can debate a long time about the how-to’s of being a helper, but let’s not lose sight of what the Bible says: God created man first; it was not good for the man to be alone; God created a woman to be his suitable helper.
In our girl-power, you-can-do-anything-you-set-your-mind-to world, this set-up God invented can feel offensive. Our sinful nature resists the idea of being a helper. As a single woman, I sometimes fear the loss of independence it requires. Yet the woman as helper is part of God’s design for the family.”
A take-away from “What Do You Mean I’m To Be My Husband’s Helper” by Martha Krienke–an article that’s worth the time of single women as well as every wife!
