DO YOU WEAR AN APRON?
I am one of those people that need to wear an apron when I am preparing food. I am not like some women who can do messy things and still stay clean. I remember when we lived in Australia and were painting our new church. It was just as well I wore old clothes as I got paint all over me.
A friend arrived in beautiful clothes, high heels, and even her hat to match! I thought she had come to say Hi. But, no. She'd come to join the team. She began to paint and never got a drop of paint on her! I guess she doesn't have to wear an apron in her home.
Not me. I make sure I wear one. However, there is an apron that God wants us all to wear. 1 Peter 5:5 (Williams) says: "You must all put on the servant's apron of humility to one another, because God opposes the haughty but bestows His unmerited favor on the humble."
When we dress each morning, it is important to also put on our "servant's apron." The apron of humility. What a mighty difference this makes in the home and in our relationships with our husband and children. It’s not always easy to wear, is it? But this is the apron that makes you look the most beautiful–and it is precious in God’s sight too.
