Who Can Find a Virtuous Women? (May 8, 2016)
Proverbs 31:10-31 King James Version (KJV)
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary states:
1. Morally good; acting in conformity to the moral law; practicing the moral duties, and abstaining from vice; as a virtuous man.
2. Being in conformity to the moral or divine law; as a virtuous action; a virtuous life.
From God’s word – Ruth is a virtuous women by reading Ruth 3:11-
“And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.”
A woman should strive to be morally good and say “no” to immortality.
A woman should draw in her husband so he does not wander from her.
A woman should do good and not evil.
A woman’s lifestyle can draw in a lost husband to the Lord. From God’s word – 1 Peter 3:7
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.”
Thoughts to consider:
Are you a woman who is:
- convicted of God’s word and truth
- use wisdom over foolishness
- use kindness
- control your tongue to gossip or unpleasant language
- cheerful and helpful to others around you
We read in Proverbs 31:19-22 – she is not afraid to do hard work
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household [are] clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing [is] silk and purple.
