“P31 Ladies” is a group of ladies from all walks of life. We range from single to married-with-grandchildren. Our class is very interactive, which enables us to edify one another.
Proverbs 31 has never been one of my favorite passages in scripture. I felt intimidated, and at times, even embarrassed because I knew I could never live up to “the list” of Proverbs 31.
Then the Holy Spirit began to help me understand this Hebrew acrostic poem was not a “list” of things I needed to accomplish, but what Jesus wants to accomplish inside me on this journey of Christian womanhood.
Jesus wants to give us strength for weakness; security for insecurity. He gives us the mind of Christ and instills wisdom overtime. He breathes warmth into cold, hurting hearts and fills them with compassion. He wants to take controlling women and teach them to put others before her. Jesus wants to provide us with purpose and perseverance. The Proverbs 31 woman is a product of the awesome God who lives within her. The only thing virtuous about her is HIM. The real Proverbs 31 woman is simply a JESUS woman.
