Proverbs 31 dating
She is such a woman of great character, that he is able to excel in the marketplace.
Together, this husband and wife are an amazing team.
There are some great character qualities for women to think about there – hardworking, generous, passionate, caring, industrious, a sacrificial heart, a good speaker, loves to laugh, and she enjoys her family. Do you believe that she has your best interests in mind?
When I look at these verses, I notice that the husband of this woman is mentioned 3 times. Do you believe that you are on the same team with her?
This verse means that in whatever she does she does it with all her might. She doesn’t just do the little task that take little effort. Just look in the previous verse, she planted a vineyard with her own hands.
#18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
#14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. Well my mom looks through all the grocery flyers and collects coupons so she can plan were the best places are to get our groceries.
This takes time to do and is often not an easy task.
#13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
We may not have to make our own cloths or seek wool but we should want to always be willing to use her hands for good.
Before we get into the verses I found a little tidbit about this passage’s history. To me it’s the eye catcher, it announces “this is important”. I like to apply this verse not only to her husband but to her friends as well.
That way my generation of young ladies will be able to understand and appreciate Proverbs 31 so much more. I find it interesting that rubies were used in this comparison because rubies are red and red symbolizes love. #11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
