The book of Proverbs was inspired by God to provide wisdom to his people. Proverbs 31 is an excellent learning tool for young girls by presenting the image of the perfect wife. This chapter describes the skills, and talent of a virtuous woman.
I read it and stopped right there and believed this chapter was written for the women until I was speaking with a friend about the “PROVERBS 31 woman” and he asked me if I knew about the Proverbs 31 man? I was like “what man?”. So I did research it and what I found was absolutely amazing it became obvious that this book was not just for my wife − it was for me – her husband − telling me how to act as a man!
This chapter serves as an incredible role model for men today. Proverbs 31 provides a source to assist young men in choosing a wife. Proverbs 31 helps single men in their search for a woman of quality. Too often in this age, a young man’s qualifications for his future bride involve a hard body with a beach tan, coca cola shape and the ability to model.
Genesis 2:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
