Message of the Day: Listen to the Advice of Wise Women!

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” (Proverbs 3:8, NLT)

Proverbs 31 is the concluding chapter of the book. It offers examples of wise women.

The king represent God as the defender of the poor and needy. They are to plead for those who cannot plead for themselves, as the orphan, the stranger, or those who were ruined by their oppressors.

King Lemuel was probably a non-Israelite from a neighboring nation, but his mother appears to be have been a God-fearing woman who vowed her son to God. The main desire of some king was to get themselves as much pleasure as possible, chiefly through women and wine. Lemuel is warned that such interests distract a king from his proper duties and result in lawlessness and injustice.

Strong drinks deadens pain and dulls the mind. Therefore, among the people who seek after it are those whose distress is so great that life seems to have no more hope for them. The king should not seek after it, for he must have a clear mind at all times, so that he can judge with justice and defend the downtrodden. (31:1-9)
