"It's not a sacrifice, it's an investment." ~Jenny Belle Crowe
The price of freedom. It is of the most ironic nature that in a woman's life, giving up egalitarianism and feminism seems like such a sacrifice, when really it is an investment in herself, her family, her church body, her country, her progeny. Faith and obedience to God's established role and duties for women is not only freedom in and of itself. But quite often holding onto that ground we christian women have fought for in building a culture of biblical womanhood in the face of feminists who would tell us to give it up, that it's easier to mother a man, to take care of things yourself, to be independent, etc. often means a greater investment is needed if we truly believe that God's Word is the ultimate authority in which we put our faith and by which we determine our duties. We hold to this with greater conviction, in spite of temptation, toil, and other mean circumstances because it's not a sacrifice, it's an investment. Our hope is that God will reap Glory by our faithfulness and obedience.
