TOPIC: A WOMAN IN A MAN'S WORLD

BIBLE TEXT:

"And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep: for she kept them"

(Genesis 29:9).

Diligence and prudence are not limited to boys. Rachel was a very pretty girl. She had brothers, yet she had her share of duty. She took care of sheep. They were tender animals which she led to graze and water daily. Beauty did not make her weak and indolent. Sheep rearing demanded early rise, care and steadfast watching against predators. She may have heard about the wild animals in the desert, yet she made herself available to labour and support her family. Some girls have performed very well in various professional fields. They are worthy and occupy prominent positions in many countries.

Both men and women can engage in most occupations. Career stereotypes should be deemphasized as we can see from the life of Rachel. Today, there are many female engineers, pilots, painters, and medical doctors. These were roles previously occupied by mainly men. However, we are not preaching feminism here. Any work you can do that does not endanger you physically, spiritually and morally is encouraged. As a Christian youth do profitable business in the fear of God.

CHALLENGE: There is profit in all righteous labour.

PRAYER: Deliver me from indolence, Oh Lord.

QUOTE: Do profitable business in the fear of God

FURTHER READING: Proverbs 31:10-15.
