Choosing excellence- Weekend Words from Proverbs 31

Proverbs 31 New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)

Who can find an excellent woman?
    She is worth far more than rubies.

13 She chooses wool and flax.
    She loves to work with her hands.
14 She is like the ships of traders.
    She brings her food from far away.
15 She gets up while it is still night.
    She provides food for her family.
16 She considers a field and buys it.
    She uses some of the money she earns to plant a vineyard.
17 She gets ready to work hard.
    Her arms are strong.

“Proverbs 31 reminds us that virtuous women are a rare find. It is not a label that many will earn. There are some areas when we feel we do well, and others that many need improvement.

A virtuous woman will recognize that her worth has nothing to do with appearance, talent, or the opinions of others.

She will recognize that her past belongs in the past and a future awaits her.

God does not expect perfection, but rather , perseverance. “
