Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman
No matter how old we are or what chapter of life we are in, we all should want to become a Proverbs 31 woman. Let us take a look at what the Bible (KJV) says about her.
Proverbs 31 : 10-31
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
When I was young and heard of the Proverbs 31 woman, I thought well I don’t have to be perfect until later in life, and I have have always been intimidated by her. I will be the first to tell you I have never been perfect and I know I never will be perfect. Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman is not about becoming perfect or seeming perfect, it is about never giving up on our walk with Jesus, no matter what point we are in our life and our path. We should always strive to be a Woman that makes our Heavenly Father say, that’s my girl. We should strive to grow in our walk with Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Even when we fall, never give up, keep getting up and going forward with Jesus. We do not have to be perfect and we do not have to worry that we were not perfect in the past. Jesus was perfect and because of His righteousness, we are made righteous through Him, not by my or your doing. The Proverbs 31 woman is a woman that when we learn more about her, she will actually become someone that you will not be intimidated by.
