I have wanted to begin a Proverbs 31 bible study here on my blog for quite a while now. Several things have stopped me from moving forward. The main thing is that I want a better understanding of what women believe about these scriptures in Proverbs 31. It would be a tremendous asset to this study if I could get you to answer the questions below. If you do not want to leave your name then that is fine. You may submit it anonymously but please be real and address all concerns you may have even if there isn’t a question for it! I look forward to this journey with all of you!
- How do you spend time with God?
- What do you think of when you hear ‘Proverbs 31 woman?
- Do you aspire to be like the woman in Proverbs 31? Why?
- What are your strengths and how do you achieve them?
- What are your weaknesses and what are you doing to better them?
- What are some of the things that you love to do?
- Aside from the obvious, God, who inspires you?
- What woman of the bible do you think that you are most like and why?
- How would you define yourself as a person?
- How would you describe your relationship with God?Proverbs 31:10-31
A Wife of Noble Character Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She finds wool and flax and busily spins it. She is like a merchant’s ship, bringing her food from afar. She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s work for her servant girls. She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard. She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night. Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber. She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes. She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple owns. Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders. She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants. She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and offers nothing from laziness. Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
