I’ve always loved the woman described in Proverbs 31 in the Bible, and at the same time been intimidated by her.
She’s amazing because she gives us clear-cut examples of what God describes as a righteous woman, wife and mother.
She doesn’t nag, she doesn’t commit adultery, she doesn’t slander, she doesn’t belittle, she doesn’t steal, but she always does good to her husband. These days you will mostly see the opposite..” From the ground God formed every wild animal and every bird in the sky, and he brought them to the man so the man could name them.
Whatever the man called each living thing, that became its name.
Just to be fair there are also men who are lazy, harsh, and selfish who don’t know how to do things that men are supposed to know how to do.
Some of us have heard it so much we have become jaded, or notice that people have clichéd it.
One of the reasons kids are becoming more rebellious is because they don’t have a biblical mother who guides the home so they go to daycare.
Virtuous women are beautiful, caring, reliable, trustworthy, loving, they make do with what they have, and this is the type of women that all men should seek.
If this temptation hits you — and it probably will at some point — don’t entertain the thought, even for a second!
Coveting leads to frustration, unfair comparisons and bitterness. I spent a few weeks (all right, maybe a month) desiring my imaginary husband until I realized I was wrong. He loved me and served me by working 15-18 hours a day, six days a week, at our family business to support our five children.
