What Does The Bible Say About Proverbs 31?
The Message of Proverbs 31
A Proverbs 31 woman is the kind of woman we all want to be. She is noble, capable, dignified, trustworthy, hard-working, creative, frugal, intelligent, talented, strong, skillful, vigorous, profitable, compassionate, respected, joyful, wise, faithful, observant, God-fearing, and praised by her family and friends. She provides for her family, is diligent in her work, and reaps rewards and blessings from her endeavors. The author of Proverbs 31 praises her highly and describes how her husband and children feel provided for, secure, and confident because of her presence. She is known in the city for being a woman of great character, and people want to go to her when they need help. Do you want to emulate these characteristics referenced in Proverbs 31?
Understanding Biblical Womanhood
One popular misconception is that the Bible is repressive or anti-women. This is simply not true! God created women in His image and gave women special gifts and abilities to serve Him. Throughout history, He has placed women in positions where they could do incredible things. Even Jesus showed his love for women by the way He incorporated them into His life and ministry.
Significant Women in the Bible
Rahab sacrificed her own safety to save the lives of two men. Queen Esther saved her entire people group from death. Deborah served as one of the few female prophetesses and judges of her day. Mary was promoted from small-town girl to the mother of the Messiah! Lydia was a successful businesswoman. These are only a few of the amazing women in the Bible!
How to Become a Woman After God’s Own Heart
The women honored in the Bible were not highlighted because they were rich or famous. Instead, they were celebrated as women with good character, deep resilience, and a strong desire to please the Lord. They actively participated in their faith and community, bearing good fruit (Gal. 5:22-23). But this fruit doesn’t start to grow from a to-do list. It begins by receiving the love and grace of Jesus, and is nurtured through time spent with Him. Biblical women know Jesus deeply and experience His peace and presence—even in the most hectic moments of life. If you want to experience this in your life as well, start here:
