Proverbs 31: 20-27 an ideal woman in history (part 3)

We read further the life of this ideal woman in history. We note some exemplary characteristics as follows:

  1. She is generous and philanthropic. She takes care of not only her family and household, but also the poor and needy out there.
  2. She prepares for the future: for herself, her own, and others.
  3. She is intelligent and with foresight but unselfish: she gives wise and good advice to others.
  4. She is kind and gentle with her words, even when giving an instruction.
  5. She has inner strength that is shown in her outward dignity, confidence, courage and even a sense of humor.
  6. She has chosen an equally good and respectable godly man to spend her life with.
  7. She has a warm, loving, outgoing personality.

Proverbs 31:20-27

20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
    and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
    for everyone has warm[c] clothes.

22 She makes her own bedspreads.
    She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
    where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
    and sashes to sell to the merchants.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
    and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
    and suffers nothing from laziness.
