The words of Proverbs 31 relating to the virtuous woman seem to many an impossible and lofty ideal that can never be reached in our personal "day to day" lives. She is known, not as The Virtuous Women, but the Impossible Woman. But is that stigma deserved?
A dedicated student of the Bible, whether male or female, will see the spiritual application of these scriptures, but few realize that these verses also give us a goal that as we prayerfully seek to achieve, will draw us not only closer to God and His will, but to those people He has brought into our sphere of influence.
No matter what our circumstance - married or single - childless or mother - whether we work outside our home or make our home our work - there are applications that can and should be made to our daily lives to help Christian women understand how we can take these scriptures and find practical value in them for our walk with God.
