A diligent, loving, serving wife is uplifted for us in the conclusion of the Book of Proverbs. Throughout the listing of the many activities and qualities that make her so admirable, weaving is central. The verses themselves carry joy and peace to weave themselves into your spirit. There is a pattern to the poem, an acrostic. Each of the twenty-two verses begins with the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
The Book of Proverbs itself has been a thread stitching the four seasons together over the three-year cycle. With this poem at the end of the cycle, may you find a special energy and peace as you seek to imitate what this woman did in her call to do God’s will, with your own call to discipleship. She is highly organized, yet not compulsive. Surely, she discovers the presence of God in her activities. Pray that the same be true for you.
