What if your church reflected the qualities of what is most often referred to as the Proverbs 31 Woman? It’s not a far reach since we truly are the Bride of Christ, so how attractive would a Proverbs 31 Church be in our world today. Here’s my remix of Proverbs 31:
A good church is hard to find…but a good church is worth finding because of the value you will discover. It’s a place where the heart of God beats for people and His purposes. A place that brings Him pleasure not harm on any given day.
This church is involved in the marketplace and is a great example of how to do business. This church finds and buys before the break of dawn and makes plans to succeed. It goes out, inspects, plants and is energetic and hardworking. This church knows how to stretch a dollar, and works far into the night providing clothing for the poor and always generous to the needy. Living on less instead of always asking for more.
This church has no fear and holds nothing back. Collectively it is handy and artistic and because of the many gifts that our expressed, the name of Jesus Christ is well known and respected among the city council and civic leaders.
This church has an entrepreneurial spirit and is strong and dignified. It has no fear of being outdated or old fashioned, but speaks wisdom for the ages and kindness over the community. This church doesn’t forget about those that call it their home, never lazy, and never lacking praise from spiritual sons and daughters. This church is one of the best among many in the world because it fears the Lord, not men. It will receive honor and recognition from the leaders of nations.
This is the Proverbs 31 Church, a beautiful bride.
