As an example to us, Jesus rose early in the morning to spend time in prayer.
Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Mark 1:35
In the same manner, the Proverbs 31 woman rises early to provide food for her household. Food. A source of nourishment. Food. Something that gives life.
She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants. Proverbs 31:15
Verse 26 is an example of some of the 'food' she inevitably will serve that day, "She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness." It is important to rise early and spend time with Jesus, preparing our hearts to serve up wisdom and kindness that day.
