and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 ESV
Most of us aren’t anything special. We aren’t famous, rich, big executives, or well-known womanizers. We struggle to lead our families, provide for them, and not go insane in the process. To the outside world, we are disposable, faceless cogs that the big players think they can swap out with someone else whenever they want.
But realize what you are: You are a man who has taken control of what he has and leads his family with a purpose. The quiet and peaceful life is one filled with rightousness and joy, not the debauchery and emptiness of the famous. You work for money not because you are a miser, but because you and your family need it. While the SJWs destroy their lineage by pointing them towards homosexuality, sterilization, and even by making them eunuchs (in the name of transgenderism), you raise up well-adjusted children who will be good parents in their own right. Stay at home moms are more content and have better satisfaction (including sexually) than the career woman.
Being a working father used to be widely respected and praised. It is not so today, but it is still the proper thing to do and is recognized by all. The childless and the fruitless will only last their lifetime and will pass on to punishment. You have chosen the path of righteousness that will last generations longer than you will. You have chosen what God wills despite what the desires of the culture are.
Spend time with your family this Sunday. If you can, visit the parents or in-laws that raised you or your wife well. Honor them for what they did, and maybe let them keep the kids while you show your wife how much you love her.
Have a blessed Sunday.
