Verse 15 says, “She riseth also while it is yet night and giveth meat to her household and a portion to her maidens.”
The Virtuous Woman is Industrious.
You won’t call this lady’s house at 9:00 A.M. and find her still in bed! I would say that she has a plan for each day and knows that in order for her home to run smoothly, she needs to put that plan into action early.
She ensures that members of her household are prepared for the day. I find it interesting that both verses fourteen and fifteen mention meeting the physical needs of her family, particularly in the area of food. It speaks to me of the importance of providing nutritious meals for our families.
I am a morning person which means that this attribute comes a bit more naturally to me than most of the other traits we have studied! However, I want to improve in making the best use of my time, that I might be diligent in accomplishing what I need to for my family.
Do you have any tips for getting an early start to the day?
