Proverbs 31: 10, 27-28.
” A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:”.
Noble, honorable. high-minded or magnanimous. Of high-minded character implies having elevated principles and consistently adhering to them: Magnanimous suggests greatness of mind or soul, especially as manifested in generosity or in overlooking injuries: magnanimous toward former enemies. Also grand and splendid.
How beautiful in spirit is the Proverbs 31 woman of God? She is someone held in high regard and her value is of tremendous worth, far more than precious stones and worldly wealth. A superwoman? Yes, she sounds like it. She’s on call for everything and doesn’t miss a beat! This is a wife of perfection, which not one of us can attain to, to such great measure? No one can compare, but each one is given the same spiritual guidelines to strive for in our journey. To rise to the challenge of nobility as the lady of the home, married or single.
Let our words be seasoned with salt, our actions filled with kindness, our character filled with excellence, our hearts filled with forgiveness and our hands filled with busy-ness. Woman striving towards a goal of noble character, will be of humble spirit and those married will be found in submission to a husband who is known and respected within their circles of influence verse 23. Men, you are not let off easily. You have an honorable life to live before God and others. You are called to be the head of your home and live a life of excellence and obedience before God. Stand up and be that man! It’s your place to do so! Run your home with a gracious spirit of love, care and compassion, leaving your selfish desires at the foot of the cross. You are called to be the man that a woman can admire for your godly traits, wisdom and character.
When a godly man lives in such godly a way, he will be respected in the home and in the community! As he lives a life to honor the Lord, a Proverbs 31 wife will find her place of honor, blessing and praise just by being by his side in obedience to God, who has ordained marriage and desires to bless it!
