Proverbs 31, a Biblical passage most characteristic of feminine strength and beauty, is often misunderstood leaving women feeling burdened and men creating unrealistic expectations. Join us as we examine how this Proverb is designed to elevate and celebrate strong women, calling them valiant, and what that means for both men and women in how we grow as people and celebrate our differences.
We get hung up on the political correctness of sharing the Gospel with others that tends to create conflict in sharing faith, feel like we don’t have anything to give or don’t feel competent to share. But fundamentally it really is making other people feel valuable, loved, cared about, wanted, by us and by God. Join us as we discuss some practical ways to share God’s love in word and in deed.
