Proverbs 31:1-3. The words of king Lemuel; the oracle which his mother taught him. What, my son? and what, O son of my womb? And what, O son of my vows? Give not thy strength unto women, Nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. The strength of the male is found in his ability to do things the females are unable to do as well as the males. What a male can do, a female can also. What limitations there are with the females, males frequently exceed. This has nothing to do with being better or superior, but only recognizing limitations the Lord placed on us physically. What females do very well, however, is bring the male to his knees, so to speak. She can do this by taking his strength away and having him “spend” it or her. A male can easily be outwitted by a female. Those males who think they are so smart to avoid such traps are frequently the first to fall. Lemuel’s mother gives solid counsel to her son about such things.
