Episode 52 - BEST OF 2022: Learning to Love the Proverbs 31 Woman
Welcome back! Today we are reintroducing one of our top podcasts of 2022: The Proverbs 31 Woman.
During this month, we are looking back over the year and picking a few of the top podcasts that we think are worth a re-listen to. Maybe you didn't get a chance to listen when they released, so here's your chance. Even if you did get a chance to listen, this is a great time to listen to them again.
The woman of Proverbs 31 simply looks perfect . She’s a good reminder that it isn’t fair for us to look at Proverbs 31 as a mirror and compare ourselves to the woman we find here. Comparison has never really been super helpful or healthy, especially when we go back to the gospel and know we can never compare to the standard that God has set (which is perfection.)
Reality check: We know we're probably never going to tick all the boxes on this chapter.
This whole idea behind the Proverbs 31 woman is actually a heart issue.
We want to emphasize that going into this next year, we should focus on cultivating a heart that fears the Lord, that remembers the gospel, and remembers who we are in Christ.
And that is what this episode is all about. We can still be a woman of virtue when we simply walk in the fear of the Lord.

Final Tip! Compare 1 Peter 3:3 with Proverbs 31 and see what jumps out at you: “Don't let your beauty consist only of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and wearing gold jewelry, but rather what is inside the heart: the imperishable qualities of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.”
