Our society places incredibly high expectations on women. Women are expected to be smart, successful, beautiful, homely, motherly, fit, and emotionally strong. The pressure on women to perform on all these levels is huge. So in the church, when we come to a passage like Proverbs 31, it is easy for our community to view it as a manifesto for women, a list of essentials, or a standard that must be attained. The pressure to be a “Proverbs 31 woman” can be debilitating. Pastor Joe unpacks the true purpose of this glorious poem in order to set women free from these expectations and help build a healthy culture for them to flourish within.
