8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. I keep hearing this verse used in support of a woman staying home to raise children and men being the lone providers for the family. How is this passage supporting this concept given the context of children and grandchildren taking the burden off of the church by supporting widows? Is the entire premise (only men being 'breadwinners') mere legalism, or is it truly supported in Scripture? How does the apparent career of the woman in Proverbs 31 play into the discussion?
