SHE IS KIND
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue (Proverbs 31:26).
Kindness (kesed) is a rich Hebrew word denoting deeds of devotion, favour, and loveliness. The word carries the Old Testament idea of the New Testament word for love (agapao), meaning “unchanging, unconditional graciousness.” This woman’s speech is flavoured with tenderness and mercy; others enjoy talking to her for endless hours! She’s not rigid and legalistic nor is her speech chock-full of self-centred comments, harsh or gossipy; rather, she’s kind and gracious, easy and genuine. As a result, she is a pleasure to be around.
