Didn't I Say Baby Steps?

I have realized the scripture I have been focusing on the last few weeks is not a baby step scripture.  KJV Proverbs 31:27 "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness."  This is more the ultimate goal, isn't it?  If I wake up early so that I can get my day, my husband's day, and my children's day off to a good start; that is looking well to the ways of my household and eating not the bread of idleness.  Waking up is a baby step that contributes to the end goal.  I can wake up.  I can take that small step every day.  Trying to never eat the bread of idleness is overwhelming.  I've been choking on the to speak.

So my ultimate goal is to not be idle, to pay attention to the people in my home - to their hearts, their habits, their paths- to serve God by being a servant to the people in my life.  Now that my goal is clearly defined, I hope to get back to baby steps, small accomplishments, and slow but steady progress.


  1. I'd say that is a wise conclusion.

  2. Agree! Cut that elephant up before you eat it.
