Meaning of Proverbs 31 Woman

April 18, 2024

Hey friend!  Today I’m going to share my interpretation of the meaning of proverbs 31 womanSo, grab a cup of coffee, find a cozy spot, and continue to read down below!

One thing I see a lot of people debate nearly every day on Christian space is:

Should you be like the Proverbs 31 woman?

As someone taking time to understand the Bible, a board-certified psychiatrist who has seen over 1000 patients in my career, and a certified life coach,

You should be like Proverbs 31 woman but not the misrepresentation of it!

Proverbs 31 has been used to demonstrate the standard of what a married wife should be: pure; godly; devoted wife and mother; perfect manager of the household; and working outside the home.

Christian men and women have been judging Christian women for not living up to the standards, or worse, we shame ourselves for not being the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman.

By looking only at the character traits of the woman, we miss the deeper meaning of the passage.

We should strive to seek wisdom in our life and business like the Proverbs 31 woman.

Wisdom is the driving force behind her actions. Seeking wisdom leads to:

-Fearing and loving Christ with all your heart and soul

-Faithfulness in marriage with our husband and in Christ

-Being a loving mother to our children

-Nourishing our physical, mental, and spiritual health

-Showing believers and non-believers love and kindness

-Financial responsibility and investing wisely in our business

-Living out God’s purpose for our life: glorifying him.

-Managing our household well by seeking what helps us run it smoothly.

-Taking care of our body since we are made in God’s image.

God calls us to choose wisdom.

-Wisdom was there during the creation of the universe.

-King Soloman prayed to God for wisdom.

In choosing wisdom, we choose God.

So now you know my thoughts and if you agree (which I hope you do) or you at least understand where I’m coming from – I’d love to support you further with this inside 1:1 Coaching Program.

Because – it’s true – you should be like the Proverbs 31 woman and seek wisdom and I’m right here to walk this line with you!

With love,
