You can look at this verse in 2 different ways. She is like the merchants ships. Think of all the many miles of ocean them ships travel to get the merchandise from point A to point B. We are to learn how to find good sales on food and go get them. Sometimes it might take going a few extra miles to get those sales. A virtuous woman will go out of her way to save money for her family.More on this later in the chapter.
Lets look at the words "she bringeth her food from afar". This could mean spiritual food.
We have to go out of our way to bring physical food from afar why not spiritual. I was
speaking to my kids in the car the other day about how we're not suposed to mention other gods. I remembered this from a previous bible reading. (Ex 23:13) I just couldn't recall at that moment exactly what it said but I promised them I would find it. After school we read the verse and talked about it. We as proverbs women should not only make it an effort to bring in the Word of God in our homes but study it so when moments arise we are prepared.
May God bless you as you continue on your proverbs 31 Journey.
