verses 13-15: “She looks for wool and flax, And works with her hands in delight. She is like merchant ships; She brings her food from afar. She rises also while it is still night, And give food to her household, And portions to her maidens.”

My wife is a stay-at-home mom…though a lot of times, she doesn’t “stay at home”. She is busy with the grocery shopping, running errands, taking care of business whether it regards the household or the kids or me. She also is busy with our church and our high school band. She is industrious, thorough, and organized. I know that my lunch for the day’s work is already made the day before, for instance.

Yet there are factions in society that would have us believe that the Bible tells us that women should be kept at home, barefoot and in the kitchen. Really?

Take another look at those verses: she “works with her hands in delight” (she enjoys God-given work, as my wife just commented), “she rises also while it is still night”, and “is like merchant ships”. I had to do all the duties she attends to, while she was convalescing from back surgery, not too long ago. Let me tell you, men, our wives’ job is not easy! Also, there are some wives who do that job and hold down an outside-the-home occupation as well (my mother was one of those)!

Take a moment today, thank God for your excellent wife, and then thank your excellent wife for all she does.

Something to think about.
