You know, the Proverbs 31 lady is pretty perfect at a lot of things, but this one really gets me. How in the world can she laugh at the future?
How can she relax when she doesn’t know what lies around the corner? How can she embrace the future when she doesn’t know what it holds?
Doesn’t she know that something could happen to her children? Or to her? Is there never any worry about vaccinations or developmental milestones or too much screen time or the influence of peers? What about her finances? Perhaps she’s never had to worry about making the income stretch to cover that broken A/C unit? Or robbing Peter to pay Paul and hoping Peter can hold off for another month?
