Often in this kind of study we hear about The Proverbs 31 Woman. After all, it is Proverbs 31:10-31 that gives us a good look at the qualities and character of a godly wife. This picture of ideal womanhood is used to inspire and motivate the women in our churches.
But what about the men? What is the ideal for them? Where do we find that in the Scriptures?
Well, we usually spend so much time looking at verses 10-31 of Proverbs 31 that we neglect verses 1-9, and there we find that in context this whole chapter has been written, not to instruct women, but to instruct men! Here we see that this chapter is really about The Proverbs 31 Man – telling us what the Bible expects for men when it comes to behavior, to faith, and to family.
With this in mind, as I preached a series of messages on God’s Design for the Family a few years back, I spent time in Proverbs 31 examining what it has to say about women and about men. As I preached through the series I first dealt with The Portrait of a Godly Wife and then I preached on The Portrait of a Godly Husband.
So click on the title of these messages and listen to these sermons from Proverbs 31. And then do what you hear! Let us strive to be godly men and women, fulfilling the roles God has designed for us within the family. As we do, He is glorified and the gospel is proclaimed through our obedience.
