You ARE the Proverbs 31 woman! 

 

FAR MORE THAN RUBIES

That is your worth as a a “virtuous and capable” wife. Your strength comes and capability comes from the Lord your God as you wake up everyday and choose to let the love of Jesus flow through you onto these precious containers on your blessing table, your husband and children.

The first exercise today was to “translate” verses 13-16 into ways you can help your husband in the year 2017.

13She finds wool and flax and busily spins it: 

She sees her man needs some new clothes and goes to Kohl’s to buy them.

14She is like a merchant’s ship,

bringing her food from afar: 

She goes to the grocery store and buys the food to prepare home cooked meals. She may drive 3o minutes away to get organic food from Harris Teeter or Trader Joes. Or she may go to Aldi and Walmart to get good deals and stretch her dollar.

15She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her householdand plan the day’s work for her servant girls: 

She rises early to spend a few quiet moments with the Lord, writing out a to do list an asking Him to help her prioritize and get done what needs to be done. She doesn’t have servant girls, BUT she has a washer, dyer, dishwasher, indoor stove, and microwave to help her.

16She goes to inspect a field and buys it;

with her earnings she plants a vineyard: 

She puts great thought into how she spends her money and thinks about how she can invest not only her money, but her time and skills for earthly and eternal profit.

These are just a few thoughts about how “Provie 31” can be translated into a real woman in 2017: 

To further engage with the passage, you were asked to ENVISION yourself as this virtuous woman, complete with all the gifts and talents you use to serve your family everyday. 

And last, but not least, Your coloring illustration was Proverbs 31:12, in the Message.  
I pray this day of studying the Proverbs 31 woman has encouraged you. Let’s stop striving and walk with Jesus to love and serve our families! Check back tomorrow for a very intense topic!!!

  2. Great video! Amy this is such a great explanation of a Proverbs 31 Woman. We shouldn’t feel defeated by the explanation of this woman. We should strive to use the gifts we have to serve the family we love. Thanks for sharing this.
