Be Prepared

(Pro 31:21)She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

The virtuous woman, yet again, puts others before herself. It isn't something we can just do once and check it off the to-do list. Putting others first must be done daily! 

Why was she not afraid of the coming snow? She was prepared! She knew that cold was coming and did everything she could to make sure her family was protected. The word here translated scarlet can also mean double garments. I think this is a more appropriate translation of the word, as wearing one color isn't any warmer than any other. She had to make sure that her household had enough clothing to keep warm. Remember how much work that is for her? I'm sure it took her a long time to prepare for her entire household! 

Today it isn't as hard for us to prepare for winter. Most of us can simply run to the store and pick up what we need. And although preparing our families for winter is important, there is something much more important that we must make sure our family is prepared for-the judgement. 
(Heb 9:27)And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
This is the most important thing we will ever prepare ourselves for! Make sure you are prepared!
