Proverbs 31:15 She rises while it is night and gets [spiritual] food for her household and assigns her maids their tasks. This verse reinforces the fact that the Proverbs 31 Woman is not lazy and

irresponsible. On the contrary, she rose before day to see to it that her household”s needs were met. She did this both spiritually and naturally, as the Amplified Bible points out. From a spiritual perspective, the Proverbs 31 Woman spent time with the Lord and from their communion, provided spiritual food for her household. From a natural perspective, she made sure that her family had food to eat and that the day”s needs were addressed. We see also that she delegated responsibility to ensure that everything was taken care of. Now, the Proverbs 31 Woman had maids, but don”t feel left out if you don”t have hired help. Just give tasks to your family, like taking out the trash, etc. and also, allow extended family and friends to help you. For example, you can carpool with other moms whose children share activities with your children. Also, don”t feel like you need to get up before dawn everyday just because the Proverbs 31 Woman did. I do not believe that we need to get up before day, everyday, unless our lifestyle requires it or our temperament encourages it. In the days of our text, food took much longer to prepare than it does today. There were no microwave ovens or even conventional ovens at that time, so food preparation would require edu domains that are not controlled by Harvard Business school-delays.com or Harvard University and are not covered by this privacy policy. one to get an early start. In addition to there being no conventional or microwave ovens at the time of our text, there also was no electricity. Because there was no electricity to prolong “daylight,” people of that era generally went to bed when the sun went down and arose when it came up again. So, the text”s pointing out that the Proverbs 31 Woman rose while it was still night, is simply to say that she got up a little earlier than the majority of the people of her era and especially, those in her household. This is a good idea for those of you who are wives and mothers who must juggle many things. You might try getting up before the rest of the family to have a moment to collect yourself, before giving out to everyone else. Having a moment to use the bathroom without someone calling your name could be heavenly. Carving out this time for yourself – to tell God thank you for another day, ask for his guidance for the day, take deep breaths, etc. – will help you to be a better wife and mother. You”ll be less likely to fly off the handle when everyone is frantically running through the house trying to start their day. They”ll look at you and think, “Wow. Mama”s so peaceful.” You”ll smile, thinking, “Thank God for Jesus, who keeps me sane. Good thing I took the time out to get myself together.” On the other hand, if getting up before everyone else doesn”t work for you, you may want to organize everything the night before. One way or another, as a Proverbs 31 Woman, you will want to handle your business. Find what works for you and work it. Do whatever it takes to keep your life in balance, naturally and spiritually. Don”t forget to let others help you: hired help if you have it, your husband, your children, extended family, whomever. If we don”t get organized and balance our lives, we”ll find that we”re holding onto our sanity with a slippery grip! That”s not good! Have a blessed week and I”ll see ya in the next article!
