Proverbs 31: 23-26



Proverbs 31:23-26New International Version (NIV)

23 
Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 
She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 
She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

How good is all of this?! In these three verses we get an insight on what a Man of God, a Godly Husband is to be like. He is a well respected man! A leader! As a wife, I know it can be hard at times to trust the husband to take complete control, but over time, after reading this passage over and over, that is the best thing I could have done for my family. It is in their blood to be leaders, and I want to let him shine. There's nothing more attractive than to have an assertive leading man for a husband ;) Am I right ?! 

Verse 24 describes the crafty/profitable side to being a Proverbs 31 woman as we read in the earlier passages.

Verse 25 " SHE IS CLOTHED WITH STRENGTH AND DIGNITY." I Love that! I want to be just that! I almost see that as someone covered or dressed in something so gorgeous that everyone would want to have on because it brings such radiance and life into this woman. .."She can laugh at the days to come.." She's a humble patient woman!

Verse 26 "She speaks with WISDOM, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.." 
Courtney of womenlivingwell.org explained this perfectly! A lot of us women tend to ramble, to talk trash , if you will, and not sound so pretty when we open our mouths.. That's not what God wants from us.The way we talk to our children as well needs to be in a loving and patient manner. Proverbs 31:26 describes the classy woman we need to be.  I like that Courtney added the verse James 3:2  

 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.

Absolutely no one but God himself is perfect, so don't forget that. To become this woman, it'll take a lifetime, a daily goal, not something that will become of us overnight. We need to work hard and make the effort to be what God designed for us to be. 
Let's do our best to be classy woman, set apart from what the world has to offer. Let's make this be the new attraction in woman.
