WORK AT BEING A SUCCESS
Proverbs 31:19 “She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.”
“Before the age of machinery, spinning was done by hand with the spindle and the distaff. The latter was a stick or staff upon which a bundle of the fiber to be spun was loosely bound, and it was either held in the left hand or stuck in the belt. The spindle was a smaller tapering rod, the rotation of which gave the twist and around which the thread was wound as it was twisted. The spinning wheel, introduced into Europe from India between the 13th and 14th centuries improved the hand-spinning method.” Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia.
Again, we see her working steadily with her hands. The tools here are associated with cloth making. She spins the yarn, and then weaves the cloth.
She Is a skilled lady.
Obviously, she could spin (making thread), weave (making cloth), and sew (making the final product).
Did skills come naturally? Probably not. Ruby worked at being a success. She practiced and applied what she knew were basics. Over the years, many skills were developed.
Do you feel that you lack skill? Pick one area to work on, and start practicing!
Don’t be satisfied to stay as you are. If you have some skills, improve them, and work to develop others.
Don’t be afraid to go to an older woman or Godly Christian lady who possesses the skill you seek. Share with her your desire to learn.
You can always learn more!
Determine not to model the values of women in our society, but values that are Bible-based.
GOD BLESS YOU!
