A Wife of Noble Character

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

In seeking God's favor for my life, and specifically my new marriage, I found this proverb very encouraging and hope that I can be a wife of noble character. I am no expert on marriage, or how to be a wife, or a new business owner, so what better standards to live by than God's.


A Proverb to live by: A wife of noble Character 

10“Who can find a wife with a strong character?
She is worth far more than jewels.
11 Her husband trusts her with all his heart,
    and he does not lack anything good.
12 She helps him and never harms him all the days of her life.
13 “She seeks out wool and linen with care
    and works with willing hands." 
 ... 
17 She puts on strength like a belt and goes to work with energy.
...
20 She opens her hands to oppressed people
    and stretches them out to needy people.
...
25 She dresses with strength and nobility,
    and she smiles at the future.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and on her tongue there is tender instruction.
27 She keeps a close eye on the conduct of her family,
    and she does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children and her husband
    stand up and bless her.
In addition, he sings her praises, by saying,
29     ‘Many women have done noble work,
        but you have surpassed them all!’
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty evaporates,
    but a woman who has the fear of the Lord should be praised.
