What Does it Mean to be a Proverbs 31 Woman: Part 4

Today I’m featuring another awesome Proverbs 31 Woman.

This post is especially for my young ladies – I haven’t forgotten about you!

When God blessed me with the vision to start this web series, I really wanted to showcase images of beautiful women living beautiful lives.

So with that being said, I am so happy to feature the lovely Saphyere Redding on today’s post.

Saphyere represents to me the millennial version of the Proverbs 31 Woman.

As a millennial, I know we get a bad reputation, but I believe in young charismatic leaders who influence culture. I consider myself to be one of them.


 

So today, I want you to think about yourself, and consider the way you live your life and interact with people. Do you consider yourself to be a Proverbs 31 Woman? 

Not sure just yet? Well let me help you with that:

In the previous posts to this series, I introduced what it meant to be a Proverbs 31 Woman and delved deeper into the true meaning of what that looks like using scripture. Today I want to continue to expound upon the Proverbs 31 Woman in a way that will help my younger readers answer the above question.

 

Proverbs 31:19 reads, “She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.”

Now I know I have interpreted this scripture before, but I want to elaborate on it even more. In case you are unfamiliar of what a distaff and spindle are used for, I want to give you a proper definition. These tools are used in spinning, and they are  designed to hold the unspun fibers, keeping them untangled to make the spinning process easier.

So in a nut shell, a distaff and spindle are tools used to create something beautiful out of raw materials, and to make the process of creation more streamlined and effective. To me, this means that a Proverbs 31 Woman is a woman who knows how to use the tools and resources provided to her in a tactical and systematic way.

The woman in the text was a woman who was smart, clever and crafty, and she used her gifts and talents to influence and inspire others.

Proverbs 31:16 says, “She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.” What this text means to me is that a Proverbs 31 Woman is a logical thinker when it comes to her finances. She is someone who does not buy in haste, but with careful consideration and planning, she spends her hard earned wages properly.

Proverbs 31:22 states, ” She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. ” This scripture has so many implications, but what sticks out to me the most is that a Proverbs 31 Woman is a woman who specializes in DIY (Do It Yourself). She is someone who is capable of providing for herself, and she dresses herself responsibly and appropriately.

Saphyere Redding is a future cultural influencer. She desires and aspires to become a future professional in law, and she currently is involved with organizations that specialize in criminal justice reform. She has a beautiful and charismatic spirit, and she is someone who I believe will inspire the lives of many as she continues to walk by faith in the Christian lifestyle.
