Hello my beautiful people and welcome back to another blog. I’m so happy you’re here. This is going to be a very short one talking about Proverbs 31. I want to mention something that I think is easy to miss when it comes to this woman. So without further ado let’s dive in shall we?
“One thing I love about Proverbs 31 is that not only does it show you how much of a hard worker this woman is but also the godly character has. She is a woman of diligence, discipline, dignity, wisdom, etc...” ~ Ruth (livelifewithruth)
Who was she?
One of my favorite things about Proverbs 31 is how descriptive it is about this particular woman. Not only does the chapter show us what she did but how she did them. I believe it gave a clear insight of who this woman was.
Let's take a look starting with my favorite verse:
“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands,” She was a hard worker, there's no doubt about that but willingly she worked. No one had to tell her to do so and she didn't make a fuss about the work she had to complete (verse 13).
“....she riseth while it was yet night...” Talk about discipline! She was a woman who disciplined herself (verse 15).
“...she girdeth her loins with strength...” Strength was a product of how hard she worked. With being born in a technologically advanced society I can only imagine the difficulty of completing daily chores in those days (verse 17).
“ She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy” She was not a stingy/selfish woman. She was a generous woman (verse 20).
“She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet” She was a step ahead, a woman who was well prepared (verse 21)
I could go all the way down to verse 31 but my main point here is to encourage us women to not only focus on what she does but who she is and work on those areas too.
That’s it! That’s the blog. Thanks for sticking it out with me today.
Until next time,
