A WISE WOMAN




Proverbs 14- 1; Every wise woman builds her house but the foolish plucks it down with her hands. So how can you, as a wise woman build your home?



1. Attitude - A wise woman should strive to have a pleasant attitude; she should be nice to her husband and those around her.



2. Beautiful words- Your words should build your husband and family members up and not tear them down. Your words should be full of grace and edify the hearers.



3. Charming Looks - You must endeavour to look neat and dress well. Its not about buying expensive clothes but putting what you can afford together, your hair must be neat, be it natural or artificial! Lol. Always take a good bath and remove unwanted hair around your body. Use deodorant and nice smelling perfumes. Lol. Remember, cleanliness is next to godliness.



4. Desire progress in your marriage and plan - a wise woman will sit down and put things in order in her home, she must encourage her husband to be his best, plan meals, care for the children and join her husband to secure their future by being financially intelligent, having multiple streams of income, saving and investing wisely.



5. Enjoy the company of her husband and family- a wise woman must invest in her relationship with her husband, learn to be your husband's best friend, cheerleader and date forever. Let him miss you when you are not around, let him enjoy being with you! Do things differently most times, cook him his favorite meal. Take him on special dates. Sing to him, read him a story, write him a poem. Give him a massage, take a bath together or bath him! Lol. Make him feel your warmth. Romance him and let him be your Romeo and you his Juliet, so he can truly "die" for you! Lol. Also make other members of your family comfortable in your home. Make your children your friend and give them the love and respect they deserve.



6. Fight fair and forgive forever - When you argue, attack the issue and not the person, be ready to forgive when offended. Always give your spouse an excuse for wrong behaviour and truly forgive! Do not let the sun go down on your wrath.



7. Give God a place in your life and home; have a loving relationship with God and commit to spending time with Him in prayers always. Prayer changes things. No matter how challenging the situation, when God is invited in, things change for good.


So what does a foolish woman do to pluck her home down? The reverse of all the wise woman does! Lol.

Note - These scriptures are worth reading - Proverbs 31- 10-31, 1 Corinthians 13, Luke 18-1-8, Revelation 12.

Prayer point - Ask God to make you a wise woman and to remove every foolishness from you in Jesus name amen.

You nailed it. I think we would still be quite foolish if we did all the things on your list BUT don't pray! I really want to be wise cos the devil is having foolish people for lunch all over the place. Prayer is the ONLY thing I have come to see that saves us....cos when we pray he enables us DO all the other stuff. We must have our God connection....we just must. Thanks for this sisdivine!
