I will be at the airport for my flight no later than 6 a.m. so I am posting this evening
Proverbs 31 Woman
22 She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.23 Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders.24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.
This woman is a crafty woman. She makes her own bedspreads. She makes her home lovely. (22)
Purple is a regal color. She dresses elegantly. The goal of a godly woman is not hotness—at least in public. Her clothing is fine in quality. This lady did not live her life in sweats. She would probably have had far fewer clothes than we do today but her focus was on quality, not quantity. (22)
She is a credit to her husband. The description of her husband here suggests that his position is at least in part because of his wife. (23) Her character and personality have reflected well on him and contributed to his place of honor in the community.
Verse 24 talks about another venture. She crafted belted linen garments and sashes to sell to merchants. This woman is industrious.
Remember that the description of the Proverbs 31 is an album not a snapshot. As I wrote earlier there are times and seasons in our lives. Be sensitive to the Lord’s leading and live fully the season you are in. Don’t be overwhelmed with the description of this woman but look for elements in the description for growth in your life.
