Modeling excellence-Weekend Words

 

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

20 She opens her arms to those who are poor.
    She reaches out her hands to those who are needy.
21 When it snows, she’s not afraid for her family.
    All of them are dressed in the finest clothes.
22 She makes her own bed coverings.
    She is dressed in fine linen and purple clothes.

24 She makes linen clothes and sells them.
    She supplies belts to the traders.
25 She puts on strength and honor as if they were her clothes.
    She can laugh at the days that are coming.

“The Bible advocates laughter as a part of our lives, yet we often allow the seriousness of life to quench our laughter. Lighten up when you fall short of perfection. While it is important to learn from our mistakes, it is equally important to laugh at our shortcomings.

The virtuous (excellent) woman of Proverbs 31 appears to have come to a place in her life where she trusted God with a calm, settled peace, and no matter what life brought her way, she determined never to stop laughing. If we are to laugh at the days to come, we must first learn to laugh at the day at hand. “
