This morning in my quiet time, I read Proverbs 18. Verse 9 is always holds a note of conviction for me.
He who is slack in his work is brother to him who destroys.
Would I ever intentionally destroy my home and family? Of course not. But when I choose to be slack in my work I am doing just that. Lord, I know there is a time for work and a time for rest, but I pray that you would help me to not take advantage of that freedom. Help me to be a woman who is characterized by diligence, in my housework, in my teaching, and in my showing sacrificial love to my family.
