The Bible says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies…” (Proverbs 31:10) Thus, “There is NO PRICE ON A VIRTUOUS WOMAN!” However, there will be many, many times the husband, children, and others will forget this virtuous woman’s birthday, Xmas, Valentine Day, Mother’s Day, and other important moments in their lives. In fact, you may be a virtuous woman without a virtuous husband and family! Check out this Blog!
BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:
Since king Solomon wrote the Book of Proverbs (among other Books in the Old Testament) and I (like you) respect his words because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit! When the SPIRIT OF GOD speaks, we’d better listen!
King Solomon had the “hot pants” and he ripped through a minimum a thousand women in his day. As you know, many of his wives were heathens and they turned his head from serving the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! So fellows (who are searching for a good woman), you’d better pay heed to the Word of God! If youse looking for a bride, wife, mother-to-be of your precious seed(s), then you’d need to read this Blog!
The late Black comedian (Flip Wilson) said, “What you see is what you get!” Of course, everybody laughed! But if you get hooked into a long-term marriage with an unvirtuous woman, it ain’t no joke. You will not have a faithful wife and your children will not have a good mother.
Now the question is, “What is a virtuous woman?” So, lets look at a few excerpts of what king Solomon defined as a virtuous woman:
(1) Her husband can go to work or travel long distances (out of state/country/outer-space or whatever) because: “The heart of her husband does safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” (Proverbs 31:11-12)
Although she may be attractive (whether slender or fat), she will remain faithful to her man. He ain’t got to worry about who’s calling her cell number and she ain’t got to run outside of their residence to take a phone call – unless she is giving him a surprise birthday or anniversary party! She ain’t got to delete emails because she is not that kind of woman! The men who interphase with her (at the grocery store, auto shop, school, work, or the gardener) don’t stand a chance of dating her and she will not be lured into a relationship because she is a virtuous woman. When strange men start hitting on her (asking for dates), she will politely say, “GET OUT OF MY FACE!”
(2) Her husband can count on her to get things done around the house and take care of the business, bills, children, and others because: “She seeketh wool, flax, and works willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she brings her food from afar. she rises while it is yet night and gives meat to her household and a portion ot her aidens. She considers a field and buys it it: with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard…she perceives of her merchandise is good; her candle goes not out by night; she lays her hands to the spindle…she stretches out her hand to the poor and needy…” (Proverbs 31:13-20)
Although her husband is not home, she leaves the light on a night. Not only does she leave the porch light on for him, but she leaves a lamp burning on a table in the window for all others who are out and about. This includes those wayward teens and young adults who are still juvenile in their hearts and not quote as grown up as they think!
This good woman takes out the garbage, buys the groceries, pays the bills, hand picks fruits and vegetables, carries grocery packages to the car, totes them into the house (as the family is out and about – doing their thang), and puts all the groceries and products away! She ill travel all over town to get the right products for her family.
This virtuous Mother puts herself last and the family members first. With the extra household finances, she purchases whatever the children need (designer jeans – which they throw down on the floor…designer tennis shoes and boots – which they loan out to their friends…expensive cell phones – which they don’t deserve and don’t answer Mom’s calls and/or block her calls if possible…and she allows them to entertain their friends and play loud music…which they don’t clean up their mess but leave it for Mom to do….).
FINALLY, I WONDER IF YAWL READERS ARE CATCHING THIS BLOG? Check it out! To make matters worse, this great AND virtuous woman may not be as appreciated but God never said that the sun will shine every day! There will be many, many times the husband, children, and others forget this virtuous woman’s birthday, Xmas, Valentine Day, Mother’s Day, and other important moments in their lives. Yet, the LIVING GOD sees all and rewards all!
There are uncaring husbands and uncaring family members who think it’s silly to waste money on cards and flowers because MOM or the WIFE is only doing her duty and/or they think MOM or the WIFE does not need anything as SHE HAS EVERYTHING! Do you know, there are husbands who feel complete because they pay the bills? They think the wife does not need extra care, appreciation, candy, flowers, and or time-off to relax. There are husbands who don’t know their wife’s dress or shoe size (let alone her favorite color). In fact, they think that showering gifts on wives is too commercialized! But, they do know how to treat the tricks at work! Some of these same stingy/selfish husbands take Starbuck coffee, candy, cakes, and a dozen donuts to work! The people at work think they are marvelous men! Help us Lord Jesus!
Inwardly (and rightfully so), this vituous woman may feel forgotten, neglected, and unappreciated but she is still ALL WOMAN! In the eyes of the LORD GOD (Who is a rewarder to them who diligently seek HIM), she has a crown awaiting her! Hang in there YOU GREAT WOMAN OF GOD!
Being a virtuous woman does not mean you have a virtuous man and/or virtuous children. You may not receive your just reward in this life. Yet, if you have a husband and children who are THANKFUL, may the good LORD richly bless you! However, if you have no one who appreciates you, may the good LORD richly bless you! “Who can find a virtuous woman?” Well, GOD can because mankind ain’t gonna tell you where she is or where she went! Regardless, you VIRTUOUS WOMEN have a duty to perform whether or not others perform their duties! Amen! Now, get out there and shine, shine, shine!!!
Have a GREAT MOTHER’S DAY!
