The Virtuous Woman of Proverbs 31

Types and shadows
They teach us to search
The virtuous woman
Is that not the Church?

The virtuous woman,
The church is it not?
As Peter described,
Without wrinkle or spot.

The traits of her character,
Her love for the groom,
Surely that is the Church,
Correct to assume?

Loving her family,
A home so secure,
Saints loving each other
with hearts that are pure.

Many seem to focus on
the virtuous woman alone,
Yet there’s a deeper lesson,
Hence I wrote this poem.

Let’s examine our hearts,
Whether a boy or a girl,
Apply that hidden treasure,
That greatly priced pearl.

For the virtuous woman,
She applies to us all,
To truly be Christian,
To follow Christ’s call.
