The Proverbs 31 woman is a beautiful picture of the sacrifice of a woman who runs her household well. She sacrifices so her husband has honor within the community. She sacrifices to provide for the needs of the family. She sacrifices to provide food and clothing for her children. Her clothes may be worn but she is covered in strength and dignity. When others are at rest she is running strong. Being a mother is not easy, but in the end…
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
