Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the younger women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed.

A Moment in Proverbs- Proverbs 14:23

Proverbs 14:23 In all Labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury

Have you ever met someone that talks of doing a great deal but rarely gets much done? Maybe you’ve even been that ‘someone’ from time to time. I know I have to check myself often and make sure that I an not just talking of what I’m going to do but actually laboring to accomplish those things. For myself, I often find the large and difficult tasks overwhelming. I can spend countless hours planning on how I’m going to do it and when but it doesn’t get done until I get busy!! “In ALL labor there is profit” even if my project isn’t complete there was still profit by the little labor I was able to get done! May this passage encourage each of us to work, even in the small tasks, and trust Him to bless the works of our hands for His glory and our good!

With much love,

Mrs. Joseph Wood

Prayer: Lord we pray for strength and clarity of mind as we tackle the sometimes daunting tasks that await for our attention. Help us to quiet our thoughts and limit our words so that we can put our actions to work all for your Glory! In Jesus Name we pray… amen!

  1. I really enjoyed this post! I am trying to pack and move out of my dorm room (leaving tomorrow morning) and it is a daunting task - I didnt realize I had so much stuff until I started cleaning and going through stuff - it has been a blessing to be able to give my stuff that i dont need anymore to others that really could use it :). Its like Christmas for both them and me heh

    Thanks for a great post <3
