2. The Proverbs 31 Woman invests in her community
Verse 16-19, 24: “She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard. She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night. Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber. She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants.”
This woman was clearly an awesome worker and was even a great employer because she carefully planned out the schedule of her servant girls. She didn’t let a moment slip away because she knew time is money.
I love that she was loyal to her job and it showed because her earnings was enough for her to plant a vineyard. This woman had it going on. Her “hands were busy spinning thread” not her mouth. She spent her time working on the job not gossiping.
As we are representing Christ in the workplace we need to make sure our work ethics and conversations are good and pleasant as described in Philippians 4:8. We are known by the fruit that we bear as stated in St. Matthew 7:16 make sure the fruit that you bear is worth eating.
