Today as we see women of all ages following dubious role models, we are refreshed to find a timeless example of virtue, responsibility and good sense. Here, in this lovely picture of womanhood, is a woman who embodies the qualities which every believing woman should strive for in her personal life and appearance, in her family life, and in her daily duties.
The woman described in Proverbs 31 is so exemplary and so virtuous, and so diligent to perform all her duties that women today, who have a heart to please God, may find it difficult or even discouraging to try to follow her example.

May we reckon ourselves to be dead indeed unto sin Rom. We cannot, but God can!
The God who indwells us can enable us. When we do fail to measure up to the kind of person God wants us to be, we can still rejoice that we have an Advocate with the Father a Helper in court! Each verse begins with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet in proper order.
