Our world looks at women primarily for their physical appearance. God tells us that beauty is far more than looks; it extends to one’s character, attitudes and actions. A woman of lasting beauty is a woman who fears the Lord.
In this message, we look at an ideal woman. She is priceless. Her value comes, not from her relationship to God. This relationship to God reveals itself in her attitudes, actions, and character. Throughout the passage, we see the kind of woman that she is. Although many of her actions might seem old fashioned (this passage is about 3,000 years old) the qualities that she exemplifies are timeless.
This poem brings the book of Proverbs to a close. Quite appropriately, it ends the book where it began – a woman (or person) who fears the Lord is to be praised.
