Proverbs 31:10-31 King James Version (KJV)

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

 

I came across this scripture of a great woman who was exceptional in all ways who had a noble character that every woman would strive to be like. Wow… really impressed about this woman’s character. I pray everyone of us here can be like this great woman. One fundamental thing that I really loved about this woman was the fact she rises at midnight and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens. She is indeed a virtuous woman! Many of us would rather sleep and snore in bed or hand over our responsibilities to our nanny to run the home on our behalf. How many of us here can testify of having to go out of our way by using our own earn money to buy a field and plant a vineyard? This woman did! It is a great challenge to all of us here whether single, in courtship or married. There is alot to learn from this Proverbs 31 woman.

However this woman understood her responsibility as a wife which was to take care of her husband, household and indeed herself. She never at any point did evil to her husband but always strive to make him happy by doing good. This godly woman was a provider, wise, kind, generous to the poor, strong etc…. Beloved, I still believe that it is possible to be a virtuous woman today. Everything is a process but we shall all eventually get there with the help of God.

One last thing I would like to mention as well is that a virtuous woman teaches and nurtures her children in the things of God. She has a devoted time to spend with kids by teaching them the ways of God.

“6 Train up a child in the way he should go,
[a]And when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6)

Despite the hustling of 6am to 5pm job, always find time to spend with your kids as well being a home-maker. Never allow your nanny to run your own home. It’s vital for us to be on our feet to avoid marriage breakdown. This tremendous woman to be honest has challenged me and I know each one of us has been blessed.
