“The Bible advocates laughter as a part of our lives, yet we often allow the seriousness of life to quench our laughter. Lighten up when you fall short of perfection. While it is important to learn from our mistakes, it is equally important to laugh at our shortcomings.
The virtuous (excellent) woman of Proverbs 31 appears to have come to a place in her life where she trusted God with a calm, settled peace, and no matter what life brought her way, she determined never to stop laughing. If we are to laugh at the days to come, we must first learn to laugh at the day at hand. “
“Deep in the heart of every person is a desperate need to feel worth and value. Most people will end up defining their worth according to the world rather than by God’s standard of measure.
Defining our worth correctly is critical not only in our pursuit to be a virtuous (excellent) woman but for our overall mental health. One can wonder how many addictions, mental anxieties, and health problems could be avoided if the worth of the individual had been properly defined in the first place.
The virtuous (excellent) woman of Proverbs 31 had defined her worth according to God’s standards. “
exploring the HEART OF faith, hope, and love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
