The Word This Week
We conclude our tour of Proverbs this Sunday by considering the last chapter of the book which features the figure of the "woman of valor". This oft-cited passage is frequently deployed on Mother's Day and not always with the most productive effect. This Sunday, we will consider that what this passage communicates is of value for all of us and is about far more than what the ideal home life should be. Proverbs was compiled as a study in wisdom, which is knowledge applied skillfully to the practical circumstances of life. Here in Proverbs 31:10-31, we find a picture of what wisdom would look like if she stepped off the page and into the real world. My prayer is that our time spent in this book will help us embody wisdom in our lives as well as this intriguing woman does. Pastor Marcus
