THE WOMAN’S ROLE IN THE BIBLE
(Has It Changed are made a Transition?)
Part 3: Proverbs 31 What Is A Good Wife?
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
My Beloved Sister in Christ Ingrid Greetings,
Peace be unto you. Thanks be to God our Father forever, for His son our Savior Christ Jesus and for the Holy Spirit that directs our every path. To all the saints of God that continue strong in the faith realizing that when you stand for God you will have few friends in the ministry and among the Brethren. Why? Are they not of God? Let the Bible speak.
In the wisdom Book we find an on-going testament to wisdom, instruction and understanding. But most important noted throughout Proverbs is the love and reverence for God. In the last Chapter of the Wisdom Book we find verses 10-31 noting in great detail the components of a good wife, a good woman.
Proverbs 31: 10 “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”
Did Solomon write these words are were they penned by some other writer? What we do know is that all things written in the Bible were inspired by Almighty God. Virtuous at this place is defined as being wise, able and industrious. Does this still define the virtuous woman today? Has a lustful society turned the virtuous woman into a sex symbol and not a Godly attribute?
Why is it such a prize to find a virtuous woman as she is worth more than the finest jewelry? Is the woman described here the woman God noted in Genesis 2: 18 that God wanted to be man’s helper?
Why is the character of the woman more important that her outward appearance? Does a woman’s inner glow give her a radiance that allows for the greatest beauty that a woman can have?
Why is this woman described here given a multitude of talents and not solely placed in the house wife/homemaker role? Is this then an indication of the varied duties of the woman of today?
Can you be a virtuous woman and not know God and Christ? As you mediate on that why then do so many women worship man (various Preachers) and not God and Christ? Flesh will kill you however the Spirit will move you.
Peace and Paradise, Brother Carl a willing slave of Almighty God writing for the FreesdomJournal 8 April 2006 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
