Proverbs 31 for singles

Proverbs 31 YouVersion KJV Bible

10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11She is trustworthy and does whatever she says she will do. 
12She will do them good and not evil all the days of her life.
13She seeks wool, and flax, and works willingly with her hands.
14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15She rises also while it is yet night, and does the cooking while it is cool and then helps feed everyone in the house. 
16She considers a field, and buys it: with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17She girds her loins with strength, and strengthens her arms.
18She works hard to make sure her work is done well and her lamp is always lit in case of emergancy. 
19 She can spin her own thread and make her own cloths
20 She is willing to let something go so it will bless someone else. And if she sees a need she tries to make sure it is met. 
21She saves her money and buys warm clothing so that when the snows comes they are prepared.  
22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23She is trustworty and nobody has to tell her twice what needs to be done. 
24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28Her friends arise up, and call her blessed; her parents also, and he praiseth her.
29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Life Lesson

Today I was confronted with the hardest choice of my life. A friend of the family died recently and his funeral is on the same day I volunteer at the local Equestrian center.

I hate funerals, (who does like them) and I do not really want to go but I felt as though I would be... rejecting... hurting... rebelling against... unfaithful to. (I don't know the exact word) my old friends if I ran of to do my favorite thing in the word instead of doing my God given job of being there for them.

I had the choice of going and working with horses, and being faithful to the new friends that I have only known for a little while, or going and helping with the after funeral dinner and being there for those I have grown up and some of them my best friends since I was tiny.

So what Have I chosen to do? Though I will not go to the funeral, it is to close to the last one I went to that was for a distant relative of mine. My church does need people to help set up for the dinner afterwords so I will be there for them in that way. I am a very soft-hearted person and personally I would not be capable of helping with the dinner if I went to the funeral.

I give my condolences to the family. I know our ex-pastor is much happier where is now, though we will all truly miss him, He is in a lot better of a place now R.I.P.

A Supportive Daughter

A supportive daughter? I have to be a supportive daughter?

OK, so I am having a bit of fun with you, But yes as daughters of God we are called to be supportive women to whomever has the authority over us, and that especially includes while we are children.

A childhood is for learning. It is during this time we establish habits and learn how we are supposed to live. So it is no wonder that God tells children to be subject to their parents to honor them, and wives to support their husbands. So naturally we are to support our parents as practice for supporting our husbands. (if that makes since)

But how? How do we support our parents? If you were to support somebody who had trouble walking and help them go somewhere how would you do it? Well you would get your arm under their shoulders so you took most of their weight and would help them go where they needed to go. You would gently point out problems and the two of you together would overcome them so you would be able to get to your destination.

If your family was a car then you would be a wheel. The More wheels there are the lighter the load and the easier it is to travel, but for a normal truck or small car it takes all four wheels to go where it needs to go if even one is flat then the car cannot go anywhere.

So your Father is the head of the family it is his job to make sure everyone is taken care of. The Mother's job is to nurture and support the father nurture the children. the children's job is to obey the Father and the Mother. It is our job to do whatever they say (as long as it does not contradict God's law.) If you feel like the job you are doing contradicts one of God's then, with the Bible and verse in hand go to a parent and talk to them about it. (I doubt they will give you such a command if they are Godly parents.)

In a home there are many things to do. Sweeping, dusting, cleaning up the toys, cooking, tending the garden, feeding the pets, you name it, and who better to do  these tasks than YOU ! To support a family people must be fed and have a clean habitat so we can be strong and healthy. A supportive daughter will simply DO the tasks, she will not ask why, she will not have to be told to do it, and she will not need to be reminded.

Nobody is perfect, we are human and we will fail. But we are to do our best. Your parents is God's representative on Earth, If you cannot go above and beyond for them, How do you think you will be willing to go above and beyond for your husband, boss, governmental leader, or for God. If we cannot even respect our parents then how can we possibly respect anybody else? Being respectful is the basis of being supportive. If we respect someone we will support them. If you support them then together you will be able to make it to the finish line.
