“Who can find a virtuous woman, for her price is far above rubies?” (Proverbs 31:10)
“Perhaps one reason of the rarity of the gift is, that it is so seldom sought. Too often is the search made for accomplishments, not for virtues, for external . . . recommendations, rather than for internal godly worth.” -Charles Bridges
I am a woman in process. Becoming a woman of strong moral character (as virtuous is defined) is not something that happens overnight. It is through daily dependence upon the Lord for grace and walking in the fear of the Lord. Some days I may take two steps forward and the next day I take a step back, and yet God is faithful and will complete the work that He has begun in me (Phil. 1:6). The same is true for you! The Proverbs 31 woman is a woman that fears the Lord. She has her priorities and values in the right place…it all starts with her relationship with the Lord. From this relationship springs forth the ability to walk out the role God has called us to complete as wives, mothers and homemakers.
