Proverbs 31:10 NIV
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
This verse in proverbs touches on a virtuous woman. A virtuous woman is basically a woman that is saved, follows the word of God, and brings honor to God and her husband. Having a virtuous woman in your life as a man is blessing for multiple reasons. From the beginning of the Bible with Adam and Eve to Samson and Delilah and many other women there are countless examples where a man’s downfall is partially due to the woman in his company. Which illustrates how critical a woman can be to man’s destiny and life. Even Jesus’ mother Mary was looked at in a negative light because people assumed she had sex before marriage when she got pregnant. Which was a false assumption and judgement. Picking the wrong woman can lead to all sorts of turmoil in a man’s life. Imagine going to work everyday and unsure if your wife was going to be committing adultery, harm your children, and or misuse your finances. That’s about as unsettling as it gets. However, flip that and imagine having a wife that lives according to God’s word. She prays for you and the family. Is supportive of your goals, keeps your honest, and provides feedback and companionship. A wife that makes you as a man look good, elevates your status in society, and is great in her own right. It’s hard to put a price on what that kind of wife but most folks sure know the costs of picking the wrong woman to marry, lay down with, etc. Virtuous women are getting harder to find in current times when the Jezebel and whore behavior is promoted heavily as the standard. However, if you find one don’t be the man that ruins this type of woman. Make sure you as a man match what she brings to the table.
