Mama Looking Good….

A capable, intelligent, virtuous woman… she is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31: 10 AMP

Proverbs 31 gives us this breath-taking view of a woman/wife/mom who’s got it going on. It is interesting to do a study of this scripture by taking a look at the way this Mama is described and the things this Mama does… check it out!

Proverbs 31 is a challenging scripture for every woman, and it is a great standard for us all to strive for. As I look at these scriptures, it seems like there is a strong correlation between what the Proverbs 31 woman does and how in turn she is described. What woman doesn’t want to be called: strong, capable, precious, blessed, secure, virtuous, and intelligent! The Proverbs 31 lady did not get called all those wonderful things for doing nothing! Check out some of the things she excelled at: working hard, speaking wisely and kindly, helping others, fearing God, supporting her husband, helping provide for family…

Let’s trust God today to give us the strength and ability to “look good” like this Proverbs 31 Mama!

Pray it!: Lord help me today to be like this Proverbs 31 Mama. I want to bring glory to you in all I do, and want to be a blessing to those around me. I want to be called strong, capable, precious, blessed, secure, virtuous, and intelligent! Help me to be intentional about following the lifestyle dipicted in the Proverbs 31 woman.
