Marriage Over Mammon

Many women today have bought into the lie that they must sacrifice family life in order to have the career they desire. Any serious study of Proverbs 31 refutes that notion. In the text, this woman is skillful, industrious, a homemaker, and blessed by her husband and children. She isn't giving up anything in the pursuit of a good life for her family. She also knows how to delegate so that she is not over working herself. Marriage is an honorable estate, no matter what out society tries to push as an alternative. In the article below, Africa's richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija, shines as an example of a woman who has not forgotten that marriage is the first ministry God gave. In a world that says that making money is more important than making dinner for your family, it is good to see those who are willing to break with the tide and go against the societal flow. I encourage you to do the same!
