Proverbs 31:29 says "Many women do noble things, but you excel them all." I was thinking about what makes the woman in Proverbs 31 surpass other noble women. Both are noble. Both have physical stamina and hardworking. Both are attractive. Both contribute to the financial wellness of their households. Both have "beauty and brains". The following verse (verse 30) discloses the line that clearly separates the two. "Charm is deceitful, beauty is vain, but a woman who FEARS THE LORD, she is to be praised." What makes a noble woman excel other noble women? She fears the Lord. She has an exceptional wisdom! Proverbs 1:7 says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of WISDOM, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
