Scripture passages for the week:
Proverbs 31 : 31 - Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Proverbs 14 : 23 - All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
Proverbs 27 : 18 - The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever protects their master will be honored.
Acts 13 : 22 - After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.'
Proverbs 27 : 2 - Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.
This is the last week of Scripture passages to read and I really feel like I've learned a lot. I have, by no means, become the Proverbs 31 woman, and I honestly don't know if I ever will. But, this study has given me something to strive for. This woman is impeccable. She rises early, goes to bed late, sees over the affairs of her household, does not eat the bread of idleness, and is called blessed by her children and praised by her husband. She is definitely worth far more than rubies.
I have so enjoyed learning about this woman. This study has come at a great time for me as I learn how to navigate the new role of motherhood and work on reclaiming my role as a wife.
