Proverbs 31:16-20

The woman personified in Proverbs 31 is a wise investor and entrepreneur. She thoughtfully buys, sells, and invests. She is ready to work day or night resulting in profit. However, her profit doesn’t solely benefit her and her family; it benefits the poor, too. She opens her arms and extends her hands to those in need. In other words, she is “others-focused.” This godly lady realizes she is blessed to bless others. What about you? Have you come to the realization of God’s many blessings in your life? God has given you life itself with which you can vigorously work; he has blessed your work resulting in earnings. What has God blessed you with to bless others? How does God want you to share these blessings today?
