“Her husband is known at the gates, he sits among the elders of the land.” –verse 23
Associations matter. Wisdom aligns itself with wisdom. A man who sits at the gates is well-respected in the community. People seek him out for his perspective and insight. His judgment rules in conjunction with the other elders.
The wise woman in this chapter holds close association with the likes of him. She works hard, and she has wise relationships.
Look at your associations. Are they wise? What does their behavior reflect on you? How do they build you up?
