A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
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:
“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
— Proverbs 31:10-12, 26-31
The Proverbs 31 Woman is an example of a God fearing woman. She is also an inspiration to many women. Without any doubt, she is a leader. The Bible says, “but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
The lesson here is this; great women are applauded. They enjoy the admiration of all, especially those closest to them. Their good works do not go unnoticed. Their husbands and children are happy to identify with them and speak highly of their accomplishments. Great women make life better for all around them. Great women are an example and an inspiration to their family and friends. Great women are leaders.
Prayer: Father, make my life an inspiration to all.
