“She considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard.(…)She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants”.
Proverbs 31:16, 24
My dear fellow Proverbs 31 women in progress,
I hope you’re well and that you have spent a wonderful week under the wings of our Lord and Savior.
Today, I will talk about the wisdom of the Proverbs 31 woman related to her finances.
Indeed, as we saw in previous posts, the Proverbs 31 woman manages her finances very well, as a result of her wisdom and discipline.
One day, I read an article on millionaires and how they perceived their revenues. It said that they relied on at least 7 streams of residual income!
But the Proverbs 31 woman already understood that during the Biblical times. Isn’t that amazing?
There is definitely nothing new under the sun…
That being said, what are the streams of income of the Proverbs 31 woman?
The Proverbs 31 woman’s streams of income
Her primary source of income is a field that she buys. Her wisdom allows her to buy a field that will provide her money. Today, it would be assimilated to our primary job or business.
Her second source of income comes from a vineyard she plants. It is very similar to an investment in real estate to get another source of income.
Her third source of income comes from her businesses. She has business ventures coming from a craft that she transformed into a reliable source of income.
What we can learn from her
- Work hard: the Proverbs 31 woman works hard to get some profit. She is serious and disciplined about it
- Invest your money: nowadays, we have a lot of investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, commodities, lands, real estate… As wise Christian women, we have to get information about these vehicles to invest our money wisely
- Assess your talents and transform your passion into a profitable business: we have to use our God-given talents not only in our homes, but also in the world
- Enjoy the results of your financial wisdom and discipline: don’t hesitate to celebrate your success and praise the Lord!
That’s all for today! Do you have several streams of income? Please share your answers in the comments section below!
