Proverbs 31 Woman — Part 15

She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.

(Proverbs 31:24)

LORD Jesus, we praise You for Your Word. Forgive us whenever we are doing things our own way. Enable us to love You more each day, and guide us to tell others about this amazing Love You have for us. Let us reach out to others, not only in words, not only through our business with them, but especially to praise You — for You are mighty to save. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

The next four blog posts will be about verses 24 to 27. God’s Word tells us that the virtuous woman is tireless in creating things — some for her family and some to sell — and how she diligently watches over her household.

READ — Let us read today’s verse again.

She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.

ENGAGE — What does the verse say?

What does she make?
_____ _____

What does she do with these garments?
(she) _____ (them)

What does she supply for the merchants?

The virtuous woman is tireless. She not only looks well after her own household but here she is also running a business out of her own home. She makes garments which she can sell, and also trades with “sashes” (belts) with the merchants.

APPLY — Think: How does this apply to you?

Have you been gifted with a certain talent which you could use in the comfort of your own home? Is there a lack of a certain supply or kind of service within your area which you could provide for?

DO — Think: What are some of the ways you could apply this verse?

Obviously the virtuous woman made garments and belts. Not every woman is the born seamstress, though. Do you prefer crocheting or knitting items?

For some of us it might be making clothing or products for the home, for others the business could mean a specific service. What talent/s has God gifted you with? Babysitting? Cleaning? One or more foreign languages? Extraordinary knowledge in Math? Could you tutor somebody? Imagine, you could use your talents to bless people and at the same time to earn a little extra money.

Do all things as unto the LORD today.
