Proverbs 31 Project (Day 18)

Good day folks, I am extremely late but better late than never.

Day 18: Don’t Get Pessimistic On Me!

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26

Hang in there we are almost at the end of the month. Are the challenges helping, hurting, hindering, or boring you? Just curious. I know it can be taxing to remember to accomplish all these little challenges but again they aren’t designed to put stress on your life. In the long run, they should help relieve stress and the abundance of issues clustering up your think tank.

Part II of Proverbs 31:15-16 breakdown

15She rises also while it is still night and gives food to her household and portions to her maidens. 16She considers a field and buys it; from her earnings, she plants a vineyard.

Now we know, not only does this woman rise before the break of day to prepare for the day but she is a business woman also. She makes sure that her household is fed and well nourished so they can concur the day head on without hesitation.

This breakdown of the virtuous woman described a hustler to the core. A woman who sought out to build up her homes economic status. She searched, checked prices, property breakdowns, and possible profits on a piece of land that she purchased with her earnings. From there she planted the seed to grow the product that would one day replenish the household.

There was nothing prim and proper about this woman, for she worked the land she recently purchased. She went about her day laying seeds and nourished the product to become a success.

Being a virtuous woman has nothing to do with being still and waiting for instruction. A virtuous woman is not one who will sit home looking pretty and wait for the support or boost of confidence. She will get out there and do what needs to be done in order for the ends to meet.

The same can be said for people in the church. Often times, folks are quick to say ‘no that’s not me,’ or whatever excuse they can muster up to keep from working in the church. The qualities and characteristics described in Proverbs can be put towards any persons every day life.

Not saying we have to jump on every board nor am I saying Christian duty is strictly for the building but some sort of missionary work should be on the agenda. A person who knows what they can offer to any cause and then they set out plans to get the job done.

Words of She first provided for her husband and children (Pr 31:10-12,27-28). She knew “keepers at home” (Tit 2:5) condemned idleness and sinful habits of foolish women; it did not mean staying home all day (I Tim 5:13-14).

If you already have a hustle, keep up the good work but don’t neglect what you have at home.

Pray for me and I will return the favor.

Much Love,
