Are You a Virtuous Woman?

Proverbs 18:22, 1 Thessalonians 5:22, Genesis2:20

***Proverbs 31:10-31

So many women are quick to jump on the Proverbs 31 woman bandwagon. However, when looking at the scripture and all the it takes truly BE a proverbs 31 woman…. It takes work!

I have taken a look at the scripture before, but I decided to take look a little deeper into what the passage means to ME. I’ve summed this up in bullet points:

What Exactly is a Proverbs 31 Woman: She is

  •  Invaluable, Cherished, Priceless
  • One whom her husband trusts
  • Submissive
  • Working willingly, Not Lazy
  • Brings good qualities to the household
  • Productive
  • Invests (could be monetary, or time, spiritually etc)
  • Wakes up early to manage the household
  • Strong, fit, healthy
  • Recognizes that what she brings to the home is profitable to the family
  • Not discouraged
  • Always Seeking Godly Pearls
  • Helps and serves the Poor
  • Home is warm and well ran
  • Clothes herself  well
  • Wears the clothing that Christ has draped her in with dignity and authority
  • Her Husband is admired and respected due to her goodness
  • Clothed in strength courage, stability, respect, confidence, dignity, and honesty
  • Careful about what she says, and speaks with wisdom and kindness
  • Isn’t lazy
  • Her children honor and respect her
  • Her husband approves, and adores her
  • All these bullet points are important but nothing is greater than being a Wife who fears God

Taking a look at the list, it’s pretty overwhelming to be completely honest. It shows me how far away from a virtuous woman I truly am.I know that I have some work to do.

But it’s not discouragement, but encouragement.

I know that I can be the woman that God created me to be, if I truly allow God to groom and mold me.

Are you a virtuous woman? Have a virtuous Wife? What are some of your tips?
