QTVOTD: Women elevated!

“Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates [of the city].” Proverbs 31:31  IOW – After reading the rest of the passage on the “woman of noble character” it became obvious that the last verse needed to be the VOTD.  All those in our culture today who think that the bible degrades women only needs to look at this last verse in Proverbs.  The verse says:  Pay her what she is due (equal pay) and let her own works (remember she makes clothing and sells it in the marketplace) show for itself in the gates of the city.  Her husband also sits in the gates of the city (similar impact as men) with the elders of the land so I would also interpret this verse to also say that he speaks highly of her with the important people and everyone he comes in contact with (every one enters the city through the gate).  Good stuff – Speak highly of your wife today!
