…and you thought Proverbs 31 was all about women…
You read that right. This piece of writing is about the Proverbs 31 man, and not the Proverbs 31 woman. Somehow, this chapter has become a hallmark passage that both men and women turn to when they want to discover what a Godly wife is. However, half of the chapter talks about a man; a Godly man. Let me prove this to you. Let’s get started!
