Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no deed of spoil.
Our lesson text asks a profound question as it relates to true mothers and Christian women. A virtuous woman is one who puts family first as she seeks to ensure that their needs are met. She emulates the love of God for her family (husband and children) as well as the community in which she lives. She seeks to do good for others while taking no thought for her own welfare, because she leaves that to God with the full understanding that God will supply all her needs.
Our scripture verses outlines the qualities and character traits of a virtuous women as I have seen these qualities on display by many of the women and especially older women that I have encountered in my lifetime. The one character trait these women had in common was a reverence for God and love for man.
Our scripture verses also state that a virtuous woman is a precious commodity and should be cherished and rewarded for her faithfulness and love for family and community. She speaks with wisdom (v.26) even when she is offering corrections to her children, a love one or someone in the community.
The value of a virtuous woman is priceless and more precious than rubies and gold. She is as beautiful as a rose.
