THE VIRTUOUS WOMAN

What a girl to do?

Some people have the mistaken idea that a woman should be
very concerned about her looks, up on the latest fashions, and look out for
herself.

But that’s not what God describes in the Bible. The woman
described in proverbs 31 is an excellent wife and mother. She is able to
balance both career and family. It may surprise you that her appearance is
never ever mentioned! This is because the best kind of attractiveness is an
inward beauty. It comes from a woman’s character.

See this woman as an inspiration to be all you can be!

Who can find a
virtuous and capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. Her husband
can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She will not hinder him
but help him all her life.

She finds wool and
flax and 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 and
plan the day’s work for her servant girls. She goes out to inspect a field and
buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She is energetic and
strong, a hard worker. She watches for bargains; her light burn late into the
night. Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fibre.

She extends a helping
hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.

She has no fear for
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 and sashes to sell to the merchants.

She is clothed with
strength and dignity, and she laughs with no fear of the future. When she
speaks, her words are wise and kindness is the rules when she gives
instructions. She carefully watches all that goes on in her household and does
not have to bear the consequences of laziness.

Her children stand and
bless her. Her husband praises her. “There are many virtuous and capable women
in the world, but you surpass them all.

Charm is deceptive,
and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly
praised.  Reward her for all she done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
 Proverbs 31 :10-30

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria
and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
