She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
- Proverbs 31:26-31 King James Version (KJV)
There are many references to women in the bible. Some of these women are nameless and some have had great influence. Women play an important role in the home and in the work of Christ. It is important that as women we nuture those in our care to reflect the character of Christ. Womens ministry seeks to develop all women to strive to be the Proverbs 31 woman, a woman we fears the Lord.
