A Virtuous Woman - Proverbs 31:20
Proverbs 31:20 - She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
The woman in this passage is charitable. She demonstrates not only a special devotion to her home but compassion toward those not fortunate enough to be in her home. She demonstrates compassion to the poor and the unfortunate who have needs. When it says she stretcheth her hand to the poor, it means she gets involved in their life, she provides what they need - maybe it was food, maybe it was money, maybe it was a cloak. She reaches forth her hands to the needy. A virtuous woman doesn't just touch those who come close to her, she goes to those who have needs. She is an utterly selfless woman. Resolve to be a virtuous woman.
