Series three is titled - The Virtuous Woman
I mentioned in series one that I was invited to speak to a group of married women about - The Woman in Marriage - during their Mother's Day Symposium.
To read the first post on The Forgiving Woman, click here & the second post on The Praying Woman, click here. Today, I'm going to share some truths about The Virtuous Woman in marriage.
Ruth, the Moabite woman was a virtuous woman -Prov 31 & Book of Ruth
When a man marries a woman, he expects her total loyalty, dedication and love to their union. He expects his wife to behave in a certain way, becoming of a respectable married woman. The society's expectation is no different.
The attributes of a virtuous woman includes the following;
She does her husband good and not evil all the days of his life. She would not plot to deceive him, or do anything to harm him. Her husband's heart safely dwells with her.
She is not idle or lazy. A virtuous woman does not engage in gossip or bear tales. She is too busy engaging in profitable business for the benefit of her family.
She is not adulterous. flirting with other men is not her way of gaining her husband's attention. And engaging in illicit affairs can not be named as part of her character.
Oh, she does not shut her ears and heart to those who need help around her. If she can't provide help, she will direct them to where they can find help or pray for help to come their way.
(vi). She will not put him down outside or inside. She keeps the home clean and tidy, because she knows cleanliness is next to godliness.
(vii). She speaks kind words. On her tongue is the law of kindness.
The series continues next week with the Wise Woman. Thank you for visiting.
