what about WOMEN??

Perhaps one of the least fed people in the church of God are WOMEN!!!
I understand well some well-intentioned and often reactionary brothers and sisters who feel there can be an over emphasis of the family in some churches including family-integrated churches, yet one thing must be said about such churches (if they are doctrinally sound) AT LEAST THEIR women are FED!!!!! They're not stuck doing nursery week after week or given some 'woman's' job while the men talk about THEOLOGY and enjoy PREACHING!

I truly wonder, how many men even have a clue where their wives are at theologically and spiritually?? How many wives and mothers are being encouraged in their God-given and ANTI-cultural roles?? How many churches are seeing Titus 2 carried out?
3Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Seriously husbands how many OLDER women in the faith does YOUR wife have in her life that are CURRENTLY encouraging and challenging YOUR wife? I'm I wrong in my assessment that this is quite rare?? Shouldn't we being preparing for such? Encouraging younger women to be ready and equipped to do this eventually?! Wouldn't this be a great way to pray for our wives that they will be exposed to REAL godly and biblical fellowship?!
Bless God for Christian women, for Christian single women who are patiently enduring and seeking after godliness while waiting for grown boys to get a clue, bless God for those wives who serve beyond sanity hoping they catch a few crumbs of truth here and there while they wait for their husbands to take an interest into their souls, praise God for those mothers who nurture, train, and pour out their weary hearts into the lives of their children while they wait for some sort of encouragement to not give in their weariness! Press ON daughters of the Lord, and keep praying for US!
MEN give your wives some MEAT, feed them, protect them, nurture them, EXPOSE them to TRUTH, bathe them in PRAYER!!!
