The Proverbs 31 is really close to my heart, I never thought that this scripture would help shape me into who I should be according to God. However I have never looked at it in depth and took it sentence for sentence and deconstruct it like a posh cheese cake. What an idea? I will challenge myself to sit down every month and reflect on one verse of Proverb 31. Then I will focus the coming week on this scripture verse and try incorporate it into my daily life.
The Wife of Noble Character
10 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Wow, this just makes me want to be a wife of noble character, but what is a noble character? A noble spirit is when someone is showing qualities of high morals, these would be along the line of courage, generosity and honor. Someone that is noble would know their place in their household as well as what they want to achieve. This all sounds a lot like a Lord and Lady, I can personally tell you that I want to be the Lady in our household. But how do I achieve this?
When I think of a Noble Lady, I have a picture in my head of a woman walking elegantly with a certain presence lingering around her. Now if this elegant is reflected in her manners and how she does things, I am sure it will come out of her heart. She will not put up a face for anyone, she will light up the room by being her graceful self. This grace I am talking about is The Grace, the Holy Spirit. This is also the company she keeps with her everyday always. This is the Lady I want to see myself grow into, I will only be honest here and say I am not nearly close to being on that level. But I should be, and so should you.
This week I will challenge myself and you if you want to partake in this weekly Proverbs 31 Challenge, to be noble and walk with the Holy Spirit. Then comes the “she is worth far more than rubies” now here I think most woman skip this part. If we are Woman of God then we are worth more than anything in this world. We should know this, but then why do we still compare ourselves to the worldly woman? Why do we belittle ourselves? Why do we stay in relationships that make us feel worthless? Why do we stand for being less than a Proverbs 31 Lady?
These are tough questions I know, but feel free if you want to answer them or even reflect on them. I know this week I will be praying to be a Proverbs 31 Lady and for every woman who wants to be a Proverbs 31 Lady.
