Re:Verse passage – Proverbs 31:10-31 (day three)

“Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.”

When chapter 31 begins, the Bible explains that this closing section on noble character in a woman was taught to King Lemuel by his mother. It pleased God to ordain that this wisdom from this wise woman he created occupy this place in scripture. And what do these words reveal? That God has made sure that a woman’s worth does not come from whom she attaches herself to. Her worth does not come from the standards the world system devises – and certainly not from standards that society declares her body must meet. Her works will praise her. What comes from within her will say enough. Jesus affirmed it: what is external to a person doesn’t generate uncleanness, but rather what comes from within a person.
