A woman of virtue…

Proverbs 31:10-31 defines a woman of virtue whose price is far above rubies.  So what are these traits?

1.  verses 11-12, 23 – – She manages relationships with her family – –  Her husband trusts her,  she supports his endeavors

2. verses 13-15,19, 22, 24, 27  She works to support her family to see they have food and clothing – – These verses cover both working at home and outside of the home.

3. verse 16, 18, 20 – She invests wisely,  manages her investments, shops wisely and has the ability to participate in charitable activities.

4. verse 17 – She is physically fit

5. verse 21, 25 – She is prepared for disaster

6. verse 26 – She is educated

7. verse 28-31 – She has earned the respect of her children and of others.

I’m in the process of discovery and progress toward becoming a virtuous woman so that the fruit of my hands and my own works “praise her in the gates.”
