Proverbs 31 Man

Okay ladies, how many times has the Proverbs 31 woman been shoved in your face as the "ideal" you must attain to?

What about the Proverbs 31 man? He's in there between the other verses, and the rest of the book is directed to him. There is much that men must do to be the husbands, fathers, and leaders God meant us to be.

But let's just focus on the guy in chapter 31.

He has the perfect wife/helpmeet, but he doesn't just expect it--he praises her. Sure she has business sense, but he trusts her. And why does she succeed? Because he is a responsible and respected, offering her security.

When a man fails to praise, trust, and offer security to his wife he can't really expect her to be the Proverbs 31 woman. I can tell you this from experience.

So us men need to do our part to help the woman in our life be who she was meant to be.
