In one of our previous articles we talked about the virtue of Ruth, and we learned from her the incredible faith she had in leaving her land to an unknown place. We learned how amazingly she loved the Lord and the moral support she gave her mother-in-law.
Virtue is something that should accompany every man and woman of God, although in this series of articles on virtue, we give a direct message for those women who really want to please the Lord.
Proverbs chapter 12 tells us about the virtue of women. While our proverbial Solomon is inspired to give a series of advice on wisdom, he again introduces us to the virtuous woman:
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
Proverbs 12:4 (KJV)
From a truly virtuous woman we can present many qualities (7 qualities of a virtuous woman), and we can begin by presenting that woman who fears the Lord. In that regard, a woman who fears the Lord and keeps her commandments expresses an undeniable virtue, and if she is married, certainly the author is not wrong in saying that she is a crown to her husband.
Can you imagine how happy a husband must be with such a woman? On the other hand, the woman who is not virtuous, as Solomon himself describes her, “the bad one”, is not like a crown but like rottenness in her bones.
Woman reading this article, what kind of woman are you, the bad one or the one who is like a crown on her husband’s head? May this question be answered in your heart and at the same time look for a way to pray to God asking Him to help you to be a virtuous woman.
