Here I will highlight each verse in Proverbs 31 as I work towards my goal of setting her free to shine in my life. (Posts I’ve made in reference to each verse will be linked)
Proverbs 31:10-31 (The Message Translation)
Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.
She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises.
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her, her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things, but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises!
