Proverbs 31 Categories


Lately I have been studying the Proverbs 31 portion of scripture and divided it into 13 categories. Although it is possible that a non-Christian woman would also have the capabilities of performing some of the tasks of a Proverbs 31 woman, it is apparent that the life of the non-believer woman could not be fully balanced in Proverbs 31 with out Christ and gaining a close relationship with him through God's word (for example kindness and waking up early are not easily done for a non-believer :) ). While looking at the Proverbs 31 portion of scripture, it is a definite starting point for building a good home management binder. Check off lists, schedules and careful management of finances and supply are a definite assistance in the Proverbs 31 lifestyle.

Col 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
