Proverbs 31 Woman — Part 4

She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.

Proverbs 31:13

LORD Jesus, we thank You for this new day that You have made. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we do not seek the right way or whenever we do not put Your will first. Guide us and teach us, and help us to learn more about our role and purpose in life. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

While verses 10-12 show us good guidelines for our marriage, the following ones gives us examples of managing an household.

READ — Let’s look at today’s verse again:

She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.

ENGAGE — Think: What does the verse say? (Copy/Paste)

What is it that the virtuous woman seeks?
_____ _____ _____

What does she do?
_____ _____ _____ _____

How?
_____

APPLY — Think: Is this true in your own household?

How do you spend the time given to you? Do you use part of it to seek specific materials out of which you can create useful things? Are you willingly work with your hands?

Beautiful and practical things do not have to be perfect. Look at your products as homemade and therefore unique. Nobody but you could create them the way they turned out to be. Isn’t that wonderful?

Theodore Roosevelt said:

Do what you can,
with what you have,
where you are.

The materials for the items you are making at home do not have to cost a fortune. You can often make something new out of something used, and it usually does not take a lot of fancy tools to do so. (I will share more practical tips in future posts.)

DO — Think: How can you make this happen?

What kind of crafts do you like to do? Would you like to learn a new skill? There are plenty of books out there that can help you get started.

What are some of the things your family members and/or your household is in need of? Do you have the skill to create some or all of these things — perhaps in time for Christmas? Remember, they do not have to turn out perfectly. Just put all your love in making them.

Be creative. Seek good resources and create something new.
