The Virtues of a Righteous Woman

A charming, beautiful woman is not godly, only she who fears the Lord is.

The Bible, and when I refer it to it, I only mean the Old and New Testament, provides a guide for a righteous woman to be identified. In this time and age nothing is more important. Civilizations rise and fall with the work of women. I believe that the greatest of all creations is not the stars, nor the earth, or the sea, nor animals. God's greatest creation is the woman. She was created last by God because He wanted it to be right.

Yet, when the Snake came along in the Garden, the woman was the first to be tempted and fall. When she was tempted she brought her husband Adam down with her. In today's era most women that fall under temptation are those recruited by oppressive cults. They enslave her mind as well as her will. Adolf Hitler began his work to dominate Germany by first getting to the women. Once he had them, the husbands soon followed...and we all know how history turned out.

So what traits must a man look for in a virtuous women? The Bible provides the following extensive verses Provers 31:10-31. But I will only highlight a few,

Justify Full31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
31:27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Paul also gives instruction to the husband about how to love their wives. He said, love your wives like Christ loves the Church. But what is a husband to do when he has given his wife everything, and lacks nothing else? What is a husband supposed to do when although firm, he speaks in a low voice to her, yet she comes out lashing like a lion?? There have been cases were women have beaten their husbands. Why would a woman react like that even if she was a Christian? The only explanation is that there are other ulterior motives behind women that behave that way, motives that could lead to her own disastrous results. If she refuses to listen to good counsel of love from her husband. If she rather listen to her own dark and twisted motivations, or her cult leaders? Then the Christian husband would do well not to go down with her as well. I believe that is one of the wisdoms of the ages.

I love Proverbs 31. I know I fail miserably on a daily basis but my heart's desire is to be that woman. Only by the mercy and grace of Jesus can I become the virtuous woman of character and love that my (future) husband needs. Thanks for sharing!

b*sherrie...hmmm through your comment God has revealed a simple truth. This simple truth being: as long as a woman aspires to be that kind of woman described in proverbs, I think that is enough. Any woman who aspires to be righteous such as yourself I believe already has the qualities to be a special child of God. I appreciate your feedback. God bless you. I know that God already has blessed you!
