Wise Thoughts on Proverbs 31
Author Anne Ortlund came to this conclusion about the Proverbs 31 woman:
"I noticed that twenty-two verses [of Proverbs 31] describe this woman's kindness, godliness, hard work, loving relationships--and only one verse out of the twenty-two [verse 22] describes how she looked...seeing this kind of proportion in Proverbs 31... I prayed 'O Father, I want to give 1/22 of my time to making myself as outwardly beautiful as I can; and I want to give all the rest of my time, 21/22 of my life, to becoming wise, kind, godly, hard-working, and the rest.'"
