I'm Not Qualified to be a Proverbs 31 Woman

Have you ever read about the woman described in Proverbs 31:10-31 and thought to yourself, I will never live up to those standards? At Proverbs 31 Ministries, we have those same thoughts!

If the “Proverbs 31 woman” were on social media today, she would probably be someone we all look to, but could never live up to. This woman does everything: wakes up early, makes her own clothes, owns property, doesn’t eat carbs (if you count the bread of idleness), takes care of her husband and kids and runs her household. No wonder some of us don’t flip to that chapter in the Bible!

In this episode of the Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, staff member Lauren Oquist dives deep into what it really means to be a Proverbs 31 woman. You’ll discover…

  • You don’t have to be meet the qualifications listed in Proverbs 31:10-31 to a “Proverbs 31 woman.”
  • Our standard for living should not be found in a person; it should be found in Jesus.
  • Your genuine desire from the core of who you are to please Him is what makes you a Proverbs 31 woman.

After all, Proverbs 31:10-31 is not a prescription for us to fulfill, but a testimony of how God is shaping us into His image.
