Proverbs 31:31

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

The final verse of this book! It took me almost a year to get through this – that hadn’t been my intention when I first started but it seems fitting I finish the last verse on the last day of the year.

This verse shows that the Proverbs 31 woman bears fruit for all she has done. She has virtue, she is faithful, she is a loving and caring mother and wife who provides for her family all that is necessary, she is a good manager, is a good worker and is industrious, she is wise in business, kind in nature, looks out for those who are needy, she is praiseworthy, excels at what she does and fears the Lord. A tall order for us all to aim for, and yet if we aim for nothing we will get just that – nothing! I can’t profess to be a Proverbs 31 Woman – at least not in entirety, but that is my aim.

I will continue to post periodically as I think of things that relate to this topic and I welcome your comments which might also encourage discussion. Bless you and thank you for coming to read this blog.  KMT

    Kathie,
    As I was preparing to teach my Sunday school class on the P31 woman, I came across your site. I have all the usual takes on her, but I found some of the comments from your study refreshing. From a personal study standpoint, I think when I studyed that this was advice from a mother to her son (vv1-10), I smiled a bit. I could almost see that mother trying sooo hard to make sure her son would find that perfect woman. If indeed it were Solomon’s mother, and we know his history with women, did he just keep looking for the perfect woman? Perhaps he should have remembered his mother’s words, and his lament would not have been so “ecclesiastical.” Good comments – I’ve enjoyed them.
