Seeking Virtue

How to Become a Proverbs 31 Woman


I am starting a new series on how to become a Proverbs 31 woman, I will be going verse by verse each week and adding some tips and "to do's" that will help you along this journey.

I know we all want to be better mothers, wives and friends to others, but its so tough!!
We get so busy with our day to day lives we sometimes forget that God wants us to strive towards perfection.

Perfection!!?? You have got to be kidding,! I can't even brush my hair every day, get my kitchen cleaned every night before bed and you're talking about perfection!?

Yes, but I did say strive didn't I??

That means we work towards it, it doesn't mean we will be it. Makes a huge difference in our perspective doesn't it?

To start this series off I want to give you the whole verse of Proverbs 31: 10-31

10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears 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

It seems a bit overwhelming, but it's so powerful!

My goal with this series is to help others while I help myself become like this highly treasured woman.

Next week we will dive head first into the first verse:

10 Who can find a virtuous wife?

For her worth is far above rubies.

Who's with me on this??
