She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Proverbs 31:27 kjv
The quick take way from my video….
“This house is clean enough to be healthy, and dirty enough to be happy.”
The Proverbs 31 Woman had a “People Priority” and a “Family First” order to her responsibilities.
Ask “What can I do to lift the load or encourage them to go God’s way?”
“How observant am I for the little signals that someone I love might have veered off in the wrong direction?”
“If I am truly to know those things about my husband and children, I will have to listen closely to them with my heart as well as my ears.”
As I stated in the title of this post, “The perfect house doesn’t make the perfect household.” The household, referred to in Proverbs 31:27, was speaking of the “people” that dwell inside the house. We want to keep our homes clean, but our main focus should be on our family and not the house.
I’ve recently started looking at your website and wanted to say thank you and that I’ve enjoyed it and benefited from it.
Thank you so much for your visit. I welcome you to come back often…I love hearing from my readers! 🙂
is this for the married woman whose children have grown or newly moms and marrried woman?
Patricia, women experience so many different seasons of life… whether being a single woman, married with young children, grown children or even grandchildren we all can have a “people” priority.
The book I recommended focuses on the entire Proverbs 31 woman, which is a woman of character, with whom is meant to be our example. I certainly haven’t arrived to that full state, but it gives me some direction to work on in my own life.
I would recommend this book for “any” Christian lady. 🙂
