Proverbs 31:16

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

"Why does God expect women to not work"
Is a question I HAVE HEARD a thousand times if I have heard it once!

Here's my answer.. God doesn't expect a woman to be laying around doing nothing.. eating the proverbial BON BON..

God has other tasks for her..

Look at this verse and remember this is a woman GOD set up in the bible as one of honor.. 

So lets see some of her valuable traits.

She considereth a field

~It means she isn't some ditzy chick chatting about the color of the newest fashion magazine

She is a thinking woman.. She considers things.. ponders the value.. reasons within herself.. Gets all the facts before she acts. She is a contemplative woman.. per se let me say her value is there because "still waters run deep"

She doesn't run out and just act.. so she's still.. But she is deep in thought.. Deep in prayer.. seeking God's will about all the things

~God expects a woman to stay busy..
Running her home, Caring for her family, Guiding and training her children in how to become independent successful and valuable contributing member..

To be a successful leader you must understand the basic human needs ...
PEOPLE think the only kind of contribution that matters is that of a paycheck in the bank..

But what about well adjusted children? How much does this weigh in value? Kids who feel loved and wanted? Kids who have a great education in both skills like dance and art.. etc..

Be she a homeschooling mom or not.. If she endevors to cook dinner for her hubby when he gets home.. and care for the kids.. read them a story etc..

She isn't going to be bored.. and eating the fruits of laziness!

The Fruit of her hands

She planteth a vineyard

Now I had to look it up.. How did they crush up the grapes??

I don't know if this makes me weird.. BUT.. I think that'd be great!

I know I'd probably end up in the drink per se.. but I sure would have fun squishing..
