Proverbs 31:10 – The Wife of Noble Character

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.

The verses from 10 onwards describe a woman that any man would be proud to have as his wife. Here we are given a wonderful description of what a wife can be and what she can do for her husband and family.

The Collins dictionary gives the meaning for noble as ‘of, or characterized by, high moral qualities,….. grand or imposing; magnificent… of superior quality or kind; excellent’.

What a description to live up to! And yet what a wonderful way to be thought of – more worth than rubies. What woman wouldn’t feel a glow of warmth within if that is how she was described by her husband? If you are a husband reading this, how often do you tell your wife that you appreciate her and what she means to you? Have you wondered how your household would manage if she wasn’t around anymore?

And if you’re a wife reading this, what do you do that would make your husband tell you something like that? What have you done to make him feel fully appreciated to the point that he wouldn’t know what he’d do if you were no longer around?

Not to mention the whole family – it is good for them to feel proud that you are the woman, wife, mother of noble character and that you are in their family.

    <p>Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you humbly in prayer. I pray that my boyfriend and I will continue to grow and do what is pleasing in God’s sight, which is to get married and have children together in Jesus name. We are both Christians and both leading very busy professional lives. I want to be there for him as a wife should be there for her husband as a helpmeet. I would like to strive to be like the wife and mother in Proverbs 31. I am 36 and he is 45. I want to have children before i am 37.5. I have spent so much time on education and career and the years have slipped by. I now realize that I would like to focus on being a part of my own family with my own husband and children who we raise to love, praise and serve God. I also need to lose a great deal of weight-100 pounds in order to be healthier and to increase my chances of one day being a mother to healthy children. Oh, I know God knows the desires of my heart.May God add a blessing-amen</p>

    Ah, but what about the man looking for her? Where can she be found? *Shrugs* Wish me the best, for starting this year, I will be in one place long enough to make a concerted effort.

    Our Father God..I come to you on bended kness asking you to forgive me for my sins. For you know my heart and my soul better than anyone. I give thanks to you for such a loving friend, husband, father of my children and spiritual leader in my life. I ask you to continue to bless our parents and give them the strength they are in need of to take care of their parents. Please spare us with a healthy life so that we can in return take care of them in their needed hours. Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a Priceless Ruby to my family. I am loved by you first and by them. Amen

    Thank you God for all good things, thank you for surrounding me with friends and family. I am 33 and at a point where I feel I am ready to settle down. I have waited this long and do believe that you have a good husband for me…..but please make me a Proverbs 31 woman so that when I meet the good and loving husband you have in store of me, I am ready. I want to be a Proverbs 31 woman in all aspects, but am not sure if I know how to especially as far as homemaking is concerned, I have concentrated so much on being industrious and any good many will be happy with that aspect of my life, but please God teach me to be whole in all aspects of Proverb 31. Amen

    What a good point you make…what have I done to make my husband feel fully appreciated and want to tell me I’m worth more than rubies? I think we (at least I) spend more time sulking that he should already be appreciating and cherishing and saying those things to me, justified or not. So funny because I just finished reading a great new book that aligns with this so well. It’s from the perspective that I need to take responsibility for ME and influence my marriage positively by fixing ME. It’s called “The Wholehearted Wife: 10 Keys to a More Loving Relationship,” by Erin, Greg and Gary Smalley. Biblical, challenging and affirming. Fresh in my mind is one of my favorite quotes, “If you want to have a more loving relationship with your husband, remember that he’s a gift from God, a treasured possession – just as you are. As a Wholehearted wife, seek to honor him each day by cherishing him and affirming his value. Treat him like a Stradivarius!” I highly recommend it!
