A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12
This was written by a man who had seven hundred wives, so I wonder if it is a description of what he never found.
We hear a lot of people talk about the Proverbs 31 wife. Some women’s ministries even use it as a group name. While most of the verses talk about all of the many great and wonderful things that she does, it is not until verse thirty that the reason for all this greatness comes out. “Charm is deceptive and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.” It is out of a heart that is totally committed to being a God follower that all of these actions flow. Because she is secure and grounded in God is she the woman that she is.
