A wife of Noble character
Proverbs 31: 10 -31
Who can find a virtuous & capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. Her husband can trust her & she will greatly enrich his life.She will not hinder him but help him all of her life.She finds wool & flax & busily spins it.She is like a merchant’s ship;she brings her food from afar.She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household & plans the day’s work for her servant girls. She goes out to inspect a field & buys it;with her earnings she plants a vineyard.She is energetic & strong,a hard worker.She watches for bargains;her lights burn far into the night.Her hands are busy spinning thread,her fingers twisting fiber.She extends a helping hand to the poor & opens her arms to the needy.She has no worry of the winter for her household because all of them have warm clothes.She quilts her own bedspreads.She dresses like royalty in gowns of finest cloth.Her husband is well known,for he sits in the council meeting with the other civic leaders.She makes belted linen garments & sashes to sell to the merchants.She is clothed with strength & dignity & she laughs with no fear of the future.When she speaks,her words are wise & kindness is the rule when she gives instructions.She carefully watches all that goes on in her household & does not have to bear the consequences of laziness.Her children stand & bless her.Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous & capable woman in the world,but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive & beautiful does not last;but a woman who fears the Lord will greatly be praised.Reward her for all she has done.Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
I pray if I am not the woman described in these verses that Father God teaches me how I can become the proverbs 31 woman.
