Doing Things In Order
It’s August 24, so I am reading Proverbs 24. Verse 27 catches my attention; “Establish your work outside and get your fields ready; then afterward build your house.” Doing things in order really can help. In this case, the young man is exhorted to establish his work and be prepared to make a living wage. Then he can look to build a house and possibly a home with a wife and children. Every man needs to find a work to do before seriously pursuing a woman to love. Doing things in order is critical to being ready and prepared before inviting her to join him.
