To Live Valiantly: A study on the Proverbs 31 Woman


Cover-With-ShadowThe Proverbs 31 Woman surprises us. Although she is the biblical picture of an ideal woman the poem never shows her praying, her children are only mentioned in passing, and her textile business receives a prominent place in the poem. What can we learn from her? In this study I will walk you through the literary and cultural richness of the poem so that you can face your own world with the courage and valor that flow from a right relationship with God. This five lesson study on the Proverbs 31 Woman can be completed individually or with your small group.

How wonderfully you capture and accurately present the victorious spiritual life of the Valiant Wife. In a world bombarded by inane cliches, trivial catchwords, and godless sound bites, you open up for Christian women a trove of treasures the church inherited from King Lemuel’s Mother about 2500 years ago.  These are timeless truths from the heart of our unchanging, sublime Triune God. The world hates the light but by His grace we walk joyfully and confidently in it.

I was very encouraged by this study. I’d read Proverbs 31 a few times, but never took the time to really study it. The author did a great job helping me understand the character of the Proverbs 31 woman. Prior to this study, my take on the Proverbs 31 woman was “I don’t measure up” and “I don’t have the energy/discipline to be a Proverbs 31 woman.” I’m happy to say, after a more thorough study of Proverbs 31, it’s not about “measuring up” or “being disciplined”.
The study’s a great mix. It helped me understand and think more in depth about what’s really being said in Proverbs 31 … and the questions helped with applying the info to real life.
