The rewards of living in excellence #Proverbs31#VickiCourtney

Bible open to Proverbs 31 with yarn and knitting needles

Proverbs 31, NIV

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

25 She puts on strength and honor as if they were her clothes.
    She can laugh at the days that are coming.         statue of an ancient woman with children            

26 She speaks wisely.
    She teaches faithfully.

27 She watches over family matters.
    She is busy all the time.

28 Her children stand up and call her blessed.
    Her husband also rises up, and he praises her.

29 He says, “Many women do excellent things.
    But you are better than all the others.”

    But a woman who has respect for the Lord should be praised.

31 Give her honor for all that her hands have done.
    Let everything she has done bring

praise to her at the city gate.

“As I think of godly women who ..consistently speak with wisdom and kindness, they all have one thing in common: each of these women exhibits a deep spirit of humility.

Displaying a spirit of humility comes naturally to someone who is in the habit of showing awe and reverence to God.

Someone who is humble understands that the only good in them comes as a result of the grace of God. They extend grace and mercy to others because they realize the value of God’s grace and mercy in their own lives.”
