The Bible speaks of the “virtuous woman”. Who is she? How does God in His Word describe her? Does she pray faithfully each day? Is she used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit? Does she consistently do daily Bible study and have regular devotional times? The answer? — None of these excellent traits is listed in God’s most extensive description of virtuous women in the bible.
Now please understand me, God devotes almost an entire chapter of the Bible (Proverbs 31) to His description of the “virtuous woman.” However, as you read the bible you’ll learn that God lists more traits of a Virtuous woman throughout the entire bible as follows:
We can see that Proverbs 31 is not the only place in the bible that describes the desirable characteristics of a virtuous woman of God. These Scriptures speak of women who are teachable, women who lead by the word, and women who are willing to be submissive, hardworking and care for their households.
Such a godly woman has been enshrined in the Scriptures for several thousand years as God’s role model for the virtuous woman of God. To the older women I say, teach these things to the younger women. To the younger women, I encourage you to reach out, rather, to embrace God’s vision for you.
How will you implement these 10 traits into your life?
