Have you ever struggled with the idea of being the perfect, Proverbs 31 woman?
In Proverbs 31:10-31, a detailed description is given about a “wife of noble character.” In these scriptures, many traits are listed that a Godly wife should possess, giving all Christian women a standard of character.
It can be easy to look at this list and feel inequivalent to the woman described in the passage of scripture, as well as a little overwhelmed by needing to live up to such a seemingly perfect person.
However, I don’t think God gave us these guidelines to make us feel bad about ourselves or discouraged. It’s quite the opposite! He gave us these guidelines to encourage us to be our best and show what our purpose as wives, mothers, sister, and friends can be in this world.
