As a Christian woman, it’s very important for you to make sure that you strive to not only be like Christ but exemplify love and grace to others. In addition to Christ, a great person to emulate is the Proverbs 31 Woman. There are so many attributes that she maintained well. If you’re trying to figure out how you can practically be like the Proverbs 31 Woman in modern times, consider these three tips.
1. Use your time wisely.
The Proverbs 31 Woman was very efficient with her time. The Bible makes it clear that she woke up early in the morning and worked until the evening. She was a worker bee. Granted, you don’t need to spend countless hours working around the clock. However, when you wake up in the morning, you should have a clear agenda for the day. It’s important to cultivate discipline and dedication so that you can be efficient with your time. Whether that means keeping a schedule or putting things on a timer for reminders, figure out a system to help you stay on track.
2. Be an example for others.
The Proverbs 31 Woman was an example to her servant girls, fellow friends and her family. It’s important to cultivate a spirit of christian women empowerment. Whether you invest in women in your local congregation or in the women that work for you, make sure that you are a good example. You can’t tell them to do something that you’re not already doing. Plus, your example shines best when it’s in action.
3. Take advantage of sales and discounts.
The Proverbs 31 woman would go far to purchase different goods. She would do this so that she could get the best price for the items she needed. In the modern day, the same concept applies to finding a good sale. No, this doesn’t mean that you have permission to indulge in a sale at the mall on a whim. In fact, this is important for building up your family while protecting your finances. It’s important to look out for sales on certain items that you know your family needs. For example, there are certain times of the year when coats are least expensive. Buy them in the off-season when they’re less expensive. When you prepare and store up items ahead of time, you’re able to bless your family and bless others.
