There is barely any Christian young lady who has not heard or even used the phrase ‘Proverbs 31 woman’. In fact, at some point, some part of you might have wished to become such a woman.
Here’s the thing: Proverbs 31:10-31 speaks about a good wife, the things that a good wife does, and the qualities expressed by a good wife.
I know that not everyone in Generation Z desires to be ‘wifed’ up, so in this post I’ll discuss some of the qualities/virtues that we should have just as women.

I know, you’re wondering whether this wisdom can be bought from the market. No, it cannot. This is one of the things that you cultivate, that require you to put more thought into the things that you say, and the things that you do.
If you’re a Christian girlie, the whole book of Proverbs is a sure way to assist you in becoming wise.

A greater part of Proverbs 31 speaks about the resourcefulness of this one woman who is always engaged in something. It even says that she works at night. I am not asking you to carry this out literally, but the significance of it cannot be missed.
Yes, I know that you want to be a soft girl – I want that as well, but money earned is sweeter than gifted money.
It’s not even about money alone. It is about the honour and respect that comes with owning your craft and using it beautifully.
