The Proverbs 31 woman today looks a little bit different than she did back in Bible times. Today’s modern woman leads a very different life than this pinnacle of Biblical virtue; is she even relevant today?
After all, it’s unlikely that today’s godly woman is waiting on merchant ships to unload the spices she needs for dinner or spinning the cloth for her clothes. Her handmaids are more likely to be kitchen gadgets than people.
But one things remains the same: the principles of the passage. God’s Word is timeless, unchanging and ever-relevant.
That means that the foundational truths in Proverbs 31 are just as important today as they were in the time they were written. When explaining the Proverbs 31 woman, we need to dive below the surface to what God’s timeless message is.
