Possibly the most intimidating woman in all of Scripture is Mrs. Proverbs 31. She gets up early and stays up late. She cooks, she sews, she shops. She manages her home, her business, and her family. Her children “rise up and call her blessed” … that alone qualifies her for the “rare” distinction she’s given in verse 10.
However, we don’t think her inclusion in Scripture is merely to create insecurity and hopelessness in the hearts of godly women everywhere. In fact, we have quite the opposite impression:
We believe Mrs. P31 offers us an example of characteristics that please the heart of God … not a “to do” list of daily activities.
As we examine those traits and attitudes, we believe you’ll be joining us in saying, “You don’t scare me!” but will instead be celebrating the example she provides of a heart and life that please the Lord.
Join us for the next three weeks as we dig in to Proverbs 31:10 -31 and we believe you’ll be encouraged and challenged!
