How Young Women are Protected



"If a woman does not have a husband to be her provider and protector, her father as the natural authority from her birth or her brother - as seen above [see Lev. 21:2-3] - ought to care for her.  A wedding ceremony is the time when a girl moves from being under the care of her father to being under her groom's care.

This is how God designed men and women to function in a family. Girls should not be trained to 'be independent on their own,' but to learn how to follow, to be the helper and encourager and comforter to the man God places in her life."

So true! But what about widows?

Hi Trish. In God's Word, the widows' families and/or church should be helping her out as in 1 Timothy 5....

"Honour widows that are widows indeed.

4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.

8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel."

and so on
