Today's message is taken from this month's devotional titled Unconditional Love and this being Mother's Day week I felt led by the Holy Spirit to focus on Mothers. Thanks for allowing me to share. Please share with others.
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Verses 11-31 answer the question of who can find a virtuous woman, which thoroughly provides the definition of a virtuous woman. The description provided also describes a Christian wife and mother. These verses also describe the ideal wife and mother whose life is centered on her family and God as well as doing what pleases both is her first and foremost mission. She is faithful to her husband and God as she knows her husband is submissive unto God and she is submissive unto him in reverence and love.
It is worth noting that a virtuous woman seeks to serve others as well as God and her family. A virtuous woman makes sure that the needs of her family are met as she is resourceful in providing for her family whether it is materially and or spiritually. This character trait also applies to community needs. She seeks to serve her community in the same loving manner.
The woman described in our lesson text gains her strength and grace from the Lord as she knows He is the true source of her being and her ability to faithfully serve her family and community.
A virtuous woman (Christian wife and mother) is priceless and is a precious commodity. She is to be loved and cherished all the days of her life. A virtuous woman is the crown jewel of the family and the apple of God and her husband's eye.
