Everyone in the Family is Important

Proper 20, Year B, Old Testament

Scripture: Proverbs 31:10-31

The Old Testament reading today is the third of three in the Book of Proverbs. Today we read about another portrait of Lady Wisdom. Lady Wisdom is both woman and wife. In this scripture we are asked to marry Wisdom. With Wisdom as our spouse, we will have a blessed and abundant life. Wisdom is generous to all, including the poor and the needy. She receives honor and praise from her husband and children. One way to think about this reading is that everyone plays a different role in the family. The family as a whole depends on its member, because everyone is important.
