Let's go to the Word...
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:4-5
Strong's concordance defines "keeper" this way
1) caring for the house, working at homea) the (watch or) keeper of the houseb) keeping at home and taking care of household affairsc) a domestic
A keeper is not just the person that cooks and cleans the house...though that is important...but she WATCHES over the house. What does that mean?
She is aware of the things going on inside the home. She knows who her children's friends are, and the types of families they come from. She is conscious of the friends that she is around, who is speaking into her life. She is aware of the different types of media coming into and out of her home and does it uphold the standards that she and her husband have set forth for their family. She is sensitive to when there is trouble brewing on the horizon. She is like a watchmen on the wall...a guard. I like to think of it as the role of gatekeeper...nothing comes in or out unless it goes through me first.
Girls, in today's society we have to embrace our role as "keeper" diligently. Our families are too precious a commodity to let life just happen.
Walking with you on the journey,ReginaThe Vow: To Guard the Castle from Harm The Challenge: While you're keeping an eye on the home to see who's coming and going, take time out to pray. Ask God to protect your family from harm and to help you to encourage them in the faith.
