The Best Way to Use Social Media

There is no doubt that social media has changed the way we communicate, and the way we live. From business transactions to romantic connections and everything in between, social media defines this generation.

Many of us can remember the early days of Yahoo Messenger. It was such a thrill to enter a chat room and start a conversation with a potential new friend from nearly anywhere in the world. “ASL” and just like that, we would begin the journey of getting to know someone we’d never met and probably never would.

Proverbs 31 Babe: Why You Must Have Your Own Money

  1. You Are a Person.

Yes, you are a human being. Ecclesiastes 3:13 says “And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labour, for these are gifts from God.” Being a woman doesn’t exclude you or mean that the gift of God doesn’t apply to you. The “virtuous and capable wife” in Proverbs 31 knew this. She went about her various businesses with zest and vigour, and applying her God given aptitude she invested her earnings, creating multiple streams of income and multiplying her revenue! Have a look:

-“She finds wool and flax and busily spins it.”

-“She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.”

– She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night.

– She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants

Man or woman, there is dignity in labour. God has made it so, and is well pleased to see it. Get with the programme.

And boy, did I learn things I should have known! How could I not have known this, I wondered over and over, feeling slightly ashamed of being so uninformed about a woman whose importance to womanhood and the world cannot be overemphasized. See what I didn’t know HERE.
