A Wise Woman Builds Her House

What does it mean to build your home (Prov. 14:1)? Not only is the structure and upkeep of the home dealt with in the concept of home building, but the family itself is included. Although the Hebrew word for “house” and “home” is the same, “home” is the preferred word here. A house is not always a home and this verse does not speak of house construction, masonry, or carpentry, but of home building; the knitting together of family and a day-to-day routine of creating a happy and comfortable place for a family to live.~Robert L. Alden
