True Beauty

Read Proverbs 30:1 through 31:31

Published: Apr 29, 2017

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate (Proverbs 31:31).

The Proverbs 31 woman challenges all Christians to live a life of service. This woman displayed her inner beauty rather than seeking attention using her outer beauty. Beauty catches another’s attention, but kind deeds are remembered forever. Look at the example of Tabitha (see Acts 9:36–42) from Joppa. The people sent for Peter, asking him to raise her from the dead. Her deeds held that kind of importance to the people of that town.

Whether you are a man or woman, your acts of kindness bring honor to God and to yourself. These acts should begin with your family, extend to the body of Christ, and reach into your community. In all places, your service acts as an example of a God who loves and honors people and provides for them. Do what God has called you to do, and you will be praised for a job well done.

Challenge for Today: Be a Proverbs 31 person, and serve people well.
