Proverbs 31:15 NIV


Here she is again. Every month with 31 days we encounter the person much of the Kingdom knows as the “Proverbs 31 women”. That’s a good thing. As we have seen in the past she exhibits traits of faithfulness, hard-work, love and so many others that are great glimpses of how a devoted follower of God should live, male or female. God wants us, like this woman, to be diligent and hard working. One commentary made a special effort to let the reader know that God is not applauding not getting enough rest. He designed us to need and appreciate rest. I remember as a young Christian challenging myself to awake at crazy early hours to pray and study scripture as so many of the early saints I was reading about did. Thankfully one day in a conversation with my pastor I mentioned this particular challenge in my disciplines. He laughed and then told me that in the day of those saints it was true that they would rise at 4 or 5 in the morning to pray and read however he let me know that these same saints went to bed at 6 and 7 in the evening. No electricity , tv’s or other sources of distraction made that a bit easier. Also in this verse we are reminded that looking after our family and loved ones is a sign of love and sacrifice. Today be that diligent yet rational servant of God. #BeTheEdge
