(poetic license to portray the Bride of Christ as the virtuous woman)

Proverbs 31:
20 THE CHURCH opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

When we embrace the poor, we receive Christ. The church with this attitude is becoming more like her husband.

Not only does she open her arms, she gives herself to meet the needs of the poorest. This a church that is willing to help wherever they can.

She may be moving to the King’s palace, but she never forgets the ghetto she was raised in. She does not look down on anyone; she looks into their eyes and finds one more way to serve her Lord.
