Looking for a godly mentor? An inspiration?
Look no further than the Proverbs 31 woman.
In today’s busy, self-focused world, it can be hard to find examples of women who glorify God with their lives.
And finding a godly woman who can step in as your mentor and guide is even tougher. I know, because I’ve been looking for worthy women for years.
But the Proverbs 31 woman is an excellent – and thorough! – biblical example.
Rather than get frustrated at the available options for mentors in our lives, we can look to the Bible for help. Isn’t that where we should look first, anyway?
Instead of only wondering what homemakers, wives and mothers could or should do, this passage of Scripture details it for us.
If you feel like you can’t possibly do all she did, take a deep breath. She didn’t do it all at once – or all by herself. Figure out what is necessary right now in your current season of life, and concentrate on that.
The surprising twist
For years, I thought the Proverbs 31 woman was an unattainable model for wives and mothers to read about.
It wasn’t until I dug in and started studying verse by verse that I realized she worked a LOT.
Suddenly, I was surprised that working women today could learn so much from her.
In fact, it’s her hard work – both in and out of her home – while creating a haven for her husband, children, and others that really stands out. Her work ethic can give us a strong but simple framework to mirror our lives after.
So how can she mentor us?
As women of the 21st century, how in the world do we go about being mentored by the Proverbs 31 woman?
Very simply, we should study her life.
Just like God’s Word gives us plenty of instruction and inspiration on how to live lives that glorify Him, Proverbs 31 is jam-packed with truth and wisdom for women of all ages to apply to their lives.
As I stopped skimming past the familiar phrases in Proverbs 31 and really dug in, I gleaned so much from her example that I examined the description of her life, verse by verse, then wrote an eBook about it.
Studying Proverbs 31 on your own and supplementing it with my book, Becoming a Modern-Day Proverbs 31 Woman, certainly is one way you could be mentored by her.
