If you hadn’t already noticed, September only has 30 days. This is why I’ve been encouraging the ladies to read Proverbs 31 every day along with the Proverb of the day. It is such an awesome example of what a woman of God should look like. It may be easy for women to get mad when reading this; especially in this day and age. However, God is timeless and so is His word. This, ladies, is what a wife, mother and woman of God should be like. Men, we just had 30 days of prepping. If you don’t realized it, most everything within the Proverbs can be directly adapted to a man’s life. Much of it is about adultery and lust. Much of it is about how to provide for your family. This is the one Proverb that women are to look at and strive for.
As we begin October, we begin a new month. This is a new opportunity to continue on in this habit we have started. Read a proverb a day. As I mentioned a couple of days ago, add a new book into the reading list. 1 Samuel? It has 31 chapters as well. Matthew and Acts both have 28. Read a good Christian book this month. If you are currently reading something, comment below. Let us all know what you are reading.
Sayings of King Lemuel
1 The sayings of King Lemuel—an oracle his mother taught him:
2 “O my son, O son of my womb,
O son of my vows,
3 do not spend your strength on women,
your vigor on those who ruin kings.
4 “It is not for kings, O Lemuel—
not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer,
5 lest they drink and forget what the law decrees,
and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
6 Give beer to those who are perishing,
wine to those who are in anguish;
7 let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.
8 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character
10 [c] A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
