Are you a wise woman? All of us would hesitate to answer in the affirmative immediately. The wise course is to examine our lives in the light of divine truth and then to take whatever steps are necessary to make them conform to that truth.
Before building, the wise woman prepares the site so that her life may rest of a firm foundation—the Word of God. Then she builds on that foundation by listening carefully; through faith, obedience, and spiritual growth; and in worship, prayer, service, confidence, consecration, thanksgiving, and reverence.
