  1. Thanks for that very interesting post.  I’ve often wondered whether that verse is meant to be helpful to women, who may feel that, because of their childbearing role, they are (often) not out doing missionary work or  other “important” work for God.  Paul may be telling women who do bear children that this work (having and raising children in a family of faith) is just as important and valuable to God as other kinds of Christian work.
