Verses 10 – 14  stood out for me on how a good women is a treasure to her husband.

10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
    She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
    and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
    bringing her food from afar”. (NLT)

“10 A truly good wife
is the most precious treasure
    a man can find!
11 Her husband depends on her,
    and she never
    lets him down.
12 She is good to him
    every day of her life,
13     and with her own hands
    she gladly makes clothes.
14 She is like a sailing ship
    that brings food
    from across the sea”. (CEV)

As a single lady desiring to get married soon (yeah my BOAZ has found me 😉 ), I’m asking myself what qualities i can learn from the woman described here. So i have decided to list the the qualities of the virtuous woman in the verses above
She is trustworthy / dependable
– She nourishes and builds up
– She does good and not harm
– She is hardworking and creative

I desire to be all of this and much more to my future husband but at the same time, i know i cannot achieve this without Gods help. I need to allow the Holy spirit take control of my my heart, for it all starts from the heart. Proverbs 4: 23 tells us to guard our heart, for out of it flows the issues of life

I pray the Holy Spirit will freely have his way in our lives and help us to be virtuous women. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Tomorrow we will be focusing on verses 15 – 18.
