A Good Wife – God’s Word Today & Thoughts to Ponder

God’s Word Today:

Proverbs 31:10-31 NCV

10 It is hard to find a good wife,
    because she is worth more than rubies.
11 Her husband trusts her completely.
    With her, he has everything he needs.
12 She does him good and not harm
    for as long as she lives.
13 She looks for wool and flax
    and likes to work with her hands.
14 She is like a trader’s ship,
    bringing food from far away.
15 She gets up while it is still dark
    and prepares food for her family
    and feeds her servant girls.

16 She inspects a field and buys it.
    With money she earned, she plants a vineyard.
17 She does her work with energy,
    and her arms are strong.
18 She knows that what she makes is good.
    Her lamp burns late into the night.
19 She makes thread with her hands
    and weaves her own cloth.
20 She welcomes the poor
    and helps the needy.
21 She does not worry about her family when it snows,
    because they all have fine clothes to keep them warm.
22 She makes coverings for herself;
    her clothes are made of linen and other expensive material.
23 Her husband is known at the city meetings,
    where he makes decisions as one of the leaders of the land.
24 She makes linen clothes and sells them
    and provides belts to the merchants.
25 She is strong and is respected by the people.
    She looks forward to the future with joy.
26 She speaks wise words
    and teaches others to be kind.

27 She watches over her family
    and never wastes her time.
28 Her children speak well of her.
    Her husband also praises her,
29 saying, “There are many fine women,
    but you are better than all of them.”
30 Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you,
    but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
31 Give her the reward she has earned;
    she should be praised in public for what she has done

Thoughts to Ponder:

Dear Father,

Thank you for giving me a wonderful mother (my late mother) and leading me to find my wife (she’s been a great partner in my life).

They both inspired me and showed me how to be a better person, a better son, a better husband and a better father.

Their ministry in our family, in their chosen field and in the church will send ripples through time.

Praises be to You.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
