“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.” (Proverbs 31:25-26, ESV)
This verse is more than just a popular quote on social media or the latest Christian t-shirt slogan… May it truly be our prayer today, as women of God!
The Amplified Bible, Classic Edition translates this beautifully:
“Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!
She opens her mouth in skillful and godly Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness [giving counsel and instruction].” (Proverbs 31:25-26, AMPC)
Let us eagerly dive into the Word of God, that we might abound in strength and dignity standing securely on the knowledge of God. Let’s be filled with His wisdom so that when we open our mouths it’s kindness, wisdom, and godly counsel that spill out. (#preachingtomyself)
