She's a Builder!

text size A A A

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. Proverbs 14:1 - Ladies, we are all a builder or we become a member of a demolition crew. The tools we use are our words, our actions, our nature. Encouraging words instead of critical, grace instead of judgment, keeping confidences instead of gossip, mercy instead of retribution. In our home, with our friends, at our workplace, will we build our house up or tear it down? It's our choice, it's really an easy choice. In fact I would even say it's a selfish choice, because if you work to build well it is truly great place to live.
