Proverbs 31 Woman: Part 2

A Woman of Devotion

13She looks for wool and flax and works with her hands in delight.

She works joyfully.

14She is like merchant ships; she brings her food from afar.

She goes the extra mile to find the finest goods for her family.

15She rises also while it is still night and gives food to her household and portions to her maidens.

She is disciplined. Even though she has servants, she is a good manager by taking are of those under her authority.

16She considers a field and buys it; from her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She's an entrepreneur and prudent with her money.

17She girds herself with strength and makes her arms strong.

She is vigorous. She stays healthy.

18She senses that her gain is good; her lamp does not go out at night.

She is a good steward.

19She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hands grasp the spindle.

She diligently uses her skills and talents.
