Really? “Fat cows?”
One of the prophets got away with calling women, “fat cows” in his day.
He must have been pretty upset because that was quite the slanderous tone to take.
It seems that the wealthy women of the day were compared to fat cows because they were pampered and well-fed. These women selfishly pushed their husbands to oppress the helpless in order to supply their lavish life-styles.
Since I am a guy and not a gal, I have only this comment to make.
I have seen guys in ministry get messed up because of the women in their lives who desire money more than ministry, comfort more than prayer, the things of this world more than the things of God. Since our Christian culture in ministry does not condone divorce, the men cater to the desire of their wives and eventually give up ministry all-together to pursue a “career.”
It is my hope that one day God will give me wisdom on how to advise men in this position, because as of today, I do not have the answer.
