Proverbs 31:13 - Eager Hands

At the beginning of the year I started focusing on one verse from Proverbs 31:10-31 each week. Somehow, after only three verses I got off track but now I'm ready to start again.

So, here's verse 13.

She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. Proverbs 31:13

Adam Clark (Adam Clarks Bible Commentary) says that even women of high rank among the Romans, Greeks and Israelites worked with their hands to support the family in whatever way needed.

The words of this verse that I want to focus on for myself this week are "eager hands." I work but do I do it with eager hands? Am I happy to perform this service for my family? Are my will and my heart in it? Is it a work of love?
