The question was raised last week about single moms working and what I thought about this. Let me start by saying that it would be wrong for a single mom to just let her family be homless and/or starve. She does have the responsibilty to care for her family. My heart truly goes out to the single mom and I just really don’t know how she does it. It also seems that the number of single moms in our society is increasing. Why is that and what can be done to change that? My answer is long but here are my thoughts on the subject.
How does a woman become a singe mom? There are 3 ways: (1) She is never married; (2) She gets divorced; and (3) she is widowed.
Let’s look at each of these a little closer. The first way, is that she is never married. The Bible calls this fornication and it is a sin. Our society has the mind set of “don’t worry, be happy” and “just do it”. Well, apparently, that is just what is happening and the number of births by unwed mothers is at an all time high. The solution to this is not one of the many forms of medical birth control or abortion – it is absinance. Abstinace is 100% safe and effective. The concept is actually really simple: If you don’t have sex, you won’t get pregnant.
