"The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." Proverbs 14:1
Reading this verse last night struck me. I knew that the words did not mean that a wise woman literally built her house with her own hands, but figuratively, so it got me to thinking:
How does a woman build her house? And how does she tear it down?
And I feel like the Lord spoke to me and said, "With words and deeds."
So I am now examining my life, trying to make sure that the words that exit my lips and the actions of my heart and hands build my house and do not destroy it.
