Today, I'm posting another devotion geared toward ladies. If you are reading this and happen to be a gentleman, please check out this one instead!
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
(King James Bible)
There has been a lot of talk about building walls and tearing them down in the last few years. To be honest, how you feel about that is between you and God. I’m not here to get political. But I do think it’s interesting that the Bible talks about women building a house.
I mean, I don’t think there were any females working in the construction business in the Bible days or until the 1900’s for that matter. So why would the Bible refer to a woman building a house?
Well, if we are taking this as the physical building of the house, it doesn’t make much sense. But what if God is talking about the spiritual, atmospheric building of the house? I think we can all agree that this is what is meant.
But how can we build up or tear down a home?
We’ll start with how to tear it down (since I want to end on the positive!)
We can tear it down by:
We can build it up by:
And of course, once you are married (or if you already are) these apply to spouses and children as well.
God has called us to be homemakers and part of our job is to set the tone for home. So, when you have a bad attitude, no doubt you’ll pull others down with you.
Purpose in your heart today to be a wise woman, not a fool. Let’s be builders, not the demolition crew!
Have a Lovely Day!
