“Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands” (Proverbs 14:1).
Today’s Morsel: When we study scripture, there seems to be little that addresses the way a woman should live and conduct herself. And because of a lack of understanding, many today are without discretion. And this is what the enemy's goal has been from the beginning, to deceive the woman into thinking that God has made her to be less than man. He caused Eve to go against God’s word by making her think that God was withholding something from her. But this was not the case. God had Eve’s best interest at heart, the same as He did Adam's. He was the creator of them both. They were the first couple. The first marriage. The first home. The first godly man and woman. They were both created in God’s image. Very good. Paul wrote that when we become Christians, or born again, that there is neither male or female, but we become one in Christ (Galatians 3:27-29). Therefore, the scriptures apply to one the same as to the other. If the woman will read them, she can become what God intended for her to be in the beginning, a godly woman in His image. In Proverbs 31, Solomon speaks of a virtuous woman. Many woman have tried to live up to the pattern listed in it, and have not been able to. The identified pattern of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31 for a woman can only be obtain by the woman who commits her life to Christ and purposes to live according to His word. To obtain this identity, she must become a doer of God’s word and not just a hearer. Solomon said, the wise woman builds her house. If she is born again, she must realize that she is a temple of God, and she must build her house based on the word of God and not on the words of man. Proverbs 16:21 tells us that “The wise in heart shall be called prudent, and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.” Ladies, God has a perfect plan for you. Find it in His word.
Sing: He is fairer than the lily of the valley, He is brighter than the morning star, He is purer than the snow, fresher than the breeze, lovelier than all of these.
Thought For Today: The wise in heart shall be called prudent, and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning (Proverbs 16:21).
