4. The Proverbs 31 Woman invests in the poor
Verse 20: “She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy”.
Think about it when was the last time you helped someone in need. I’m not referring to a family member but someone that had no money or no food.
I understand many women including myself are very careful about giving rides to people or giving money to someone on the street but when you walk with God, he will nudge you and let you know “Hey give that person a few dollars” or “Take some food by that person’s house”.
Be mindful and careful when dealing with the poor because most are broken vessel that just needs someone to invest in them.
If you can’t or don’t feel comfort giving them money, then just say a prayer for them or drop some food off to them. Make sure you speak with respect to them and treat them like a human being and not trash on the ground.
Use wisdom and allow God to lead and direct you.
I could only imagine that when this Proverbs 31 woman extended her arm and opened her hands to the poor, she was at a position to receive more from God.
I’m sure her intentions were pure and not for attention or accolades. God says in his word (2 Corinthians 9:7), he loves a cheerful giver! And that it is more blessed to give to then to receive.
