Devotional Reading for the year
Proverbs 31:13“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.”
There is no idleness in her life.
This woman is steady in her work as Rachel was in Genesis 29:1-10, in caring for her father’s camels.
Hard work has been God’s way from the beginning.
The virtuous woman does not waste the precious time God has given her.
Don’t you think it's a problem when busy every moment? And not a second to spare? That’s a good start, but more than activity is needed.
Organization gives direction to industriousness.
Thoughtful planning keeps us from “running in circles.” It gives purpose to our industriousness.
[Illustration: a two-year-old can “industriously” empty all the drawers in his room, but for what purpose?]
She's a diligent, wise manager of her time as found in verses 15 & 24.
God bless you
