Proverbs

I don't generally post readings for the Masses I attend, but for some reason, I especially liked the first reading at tonight's, Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31:

Who can find a woman of worth?

Far beyond jewels is her value.

Her husband trusts her judgment;

he does not lack income.

She brings him profit, not loss,

all the days of her life.

She seeks out wool and flax

and weaves with skillful hands.

She puts her hands to the distaff,

and her fingers ply the spindle.

She reaches out her hands to the poor,

and extends her arms to the needy.

Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting:

the woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Acclaim her for the works of her hands,

and let her deeds praise her at the city gate.
