Just as traders or storekeepers search high and low to bring their customers the best products they can find, so this Proverbs 31 woman seeks to provide the same for her household.
The Virtuous Woman is Resourceful.
When it comes to feeding her family, this lady takes the time to explore what is available and makes purchases that will nourish and strengthen those she loves.
Beyond the realm of food, I see her using the resources that are available to her to create a home that is a haven for her family. These are women I admire, those who turn an old skirt into a pretty throw pillow or create a gourmet meal from a hodge podge of leftovers. They are able to make even mundane activities seem like special events.
Surely this virtuous woman also gives the best of herself. A person who is resourceful is defined as one who is “able to act effectively or imaginatively, especially in difficult situations.” How often as wives and mothers we are called to do just that!
This week I will challenge myself to give my best to my family, planning how I can effectively meet their physical, spiritual and emotional needs.
