She makes linen garments and sells them , and supplies sashes for the merchants. Proverbs 31:24 NKJV
This woman is an entrepreneur. She not only makes and sells linen garments, but she also distributes her items to other merchants to sell. She creates a brand for herself through items she sells herself. She helps others merchants develop their business by supplying sashes for them to sell. She is known by individuals who buy her garments. She is also known by other business owners.
She is wise not to burn herself out providing full garments to both individuals and merchants. She focuses her efforts. Full garments take more material, time, and effort on her part to make, so she sells these items herself. Also thinking of the community and the merchants, she creates needed sashes. These items take much less material, time, and effort but are still a value to merchants.
She possesses a keen business sense. There is more margin in selling a sash because the cost is low to produce one. Likewise, the full garments have lower margin, so she sells them herself to maximize her profits. She pursues both what she enjoys to do and that which will generate an income. She is wise with her abilities, time and resources.
Lord Jesus, help us to be wise with all you have given us. Teach us to benefit others and provide for our families too. In your precious name we pray. Amen.
