I don't believe this is a mirror we should be able to look into and see an exact reflection. That would just set us up for failure and bitterness, and I don't believe our Father sets us up for failure and bitterness. I believe it's more like goal setting, like a hobby that you work on your entire life to one day become an expert.
Like Tiger Woods at 2 years old, just swinging his first golf club. If anyone showed him a video of himself 30 years into the future and said he had to be that good RIGHT NOW, then he'd probably have dropped the club and picked back up his hot wheels cars. Proficiency takes time, learning doesn't happen in a day or a year. It happens over a lifetime, and I think that's what Proverbs 31 is.
I share all this to let you in on the Summer semester Proverbs 31 Book Club that starts today over at Women Living Well and Good Morning Girls. I've been wanting to start studying HER again, so this was all just great timing for me. I would try to explain the logistics of it, but I did that with a friend yesterday and completely confused her, so go visit the websites and it should be very simple to figure out.
Have you been looking for a Summer Bible study? This one is low-key, easy peasy, and doable anywhere. We will be traveling quite a bit this summer (go figure...), so this will be good for me because it's not dependent on where I am. Anyone in with me? Check it out!
