Verse Two Noting key phrases and words of Proverbs 31:19.
- WE, AS CHRIST'S BRIDE, respect Christ's purifying and holy work by submitting to His authority and working willingly towards His purposes.
- BECAUSE JESUS, loves us by working to bring about the best for us and leads us in righteousness.
- A HELPER submits to her husband's authority and willingly works toward his purposes because she respects him as a man handcrafted by God who was positioned to seek God with her as they walk together through life.
- A KEEPER loves his wife by willingly working to lead her in the quest for sanctification and oneness with God.
- In the past, I DISMISSED this verse. It seemed irrelevant to the present or to my life specifically. "That was when they had to make their own clothes. You cannot honestly tell me God still expects this of all women. And, of course, she 'willingly worked,' we all have to - it's a fact of life."
- Presently, I'm STUNNED. This verse has little to do with finding what you want and everything to do with diligently seeking what you need.
- From now on, I hope to PRIORITIZE the importance of my role as "keeper of the home" as a pivotal one from a spiritual standpoint. That I not only work to carefully select material goods that are best for my household and God's glory, but that I also regard the intellectual, relational, and spiritual consumption carefully. It matters.
She layeth her hands / to the spindle / and her hands hold / the distaff.
