From what I have heard from women I have talked with, nothing is more satisfying, and in some cases more tiring, than being a wife and mother.

Proverbs 31:10-31 shows what a wise woman looks like, but let’s see what happens when it comes to business. Three Bible versus stand out to me regarding a woman being in the marketplace.
Pro 31:16, 18, 24 She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard. She senses that her gain is good; Her lamp does not go out at night. She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
She “senses that her gain is good” and it helps establish her high self esteem because of what she has done.
So what else should a faithful woman look like regarding her many roles?

We’re ambassadors for God in Satan’s kingdom, not to work for him, but for God.
But once Satan’s negative ideas take root, they’re like weeds, you need the shoots and the roots to get it all out of one’s mind. It’s not easy, but it needs to be done. But it comes down to one question:
Are you obeying God’s calling with your God-given talents and abilities to the fullest for His glory?
Economics and the morality of business is a touchy subject for people depending on your family, history, experience, and Christian upbringing and exposure, but the truth of the matter is really rooted in what the Bible teaches us regarding the morality of business and the economics of property rights.
If you have a certain economic leaning, listen to what happened in America that affected our productivity since our founding based on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It goes far beyond simple economics, but also affects all of us during our lifetime.
