Each of us has her own unique character.
But Proverbs 31:10-31 of the Bible speaks of the character or attributes of a Wife with noble character.
It even asked who can find a Wife of a Noble Character?
Is it really hard to find one?
But how do we know if we bear those attributes?
From the verses, I have identified 10 Attributes that you can set as example to win what this noble woman won for having these attributes:
10 Attributes Of A Noble Wife
|1.Decisive||it is this character that makes her husband confident in her. Because of her wise decisions, her family lacks nothing of their basic needs and in no way she brings trouble to his husband but only good things. (Proverbs 31: 11-12)|
|2.Independent||being a merchant and being compared to a merchant ship which is always very organized in being loaded, she can stand alone and can provide for her family. (Proverbs 31:13-14)|
|3.With Good Heart and Good Time Management||though engaged in a business, providing food for her family is not a burden. She wakes up early in the morning.
Just my thought, I think being late with transactions is not in her vocabulary.
And the servant girls may represent her workers or crew, to be reword in our time.
Her worker might be receiving free meal as a benefit. (Proverbs 31:15)
|4.Factual Investor||she is not controlled by gut feel or impulse buying.
Before she buys property, is doing some researches to consider if an investment will be profitable or not. (Proverbs 31:16)
|5.Hands-on Manager||she knows by her own knowledge how to do the job so she can easily forecast and organize process & operations. (Proverbs 31:17-19,22,26)|
|6.Wise||imagine the impact of being a manufacturer and have merchandisers to supply?
It is also multiplying your very own capacity-wise decision. (Proverbs 31:14)
|7.Efficient||being a manufacturer with the capacity of being a supplier, she is efficiently doing her work. (Proverbs 31:15)|
|8.Considerate/Merciful||she doesn’t only sympathize, but because she has abundance, she is able to extend help or give to the needy.
Many of us would like to help the poor and needy, but how can we help, if we don’t work wisely as the noble woman did? (Proverbs 31:20)
|9.Household Overseer||no matter how busy, she makes it a point to know and oversee the needs and concerns of her household. (Proverbs 31:21,27-28)|
|10.Strong/Dignified||all of the above makes her strong and speaks of her dignity to the point of reflecting it to family members. (Proverbs 31:28-31)|
This is the noble woman that the Bible describes.
You can silently make a checklist of what you have to be called that strong and dignified being honored by your family and neighbor.
In reality, we have weaknesses.
We can desire to have these 10 attributes.
From time to time, we can meet some and also fall short.
Don’t worry and never be lonely for not getting a perfect score on these.
As the Bible says, this woman is hard to find.
What it is important is, we are loved and accepted;
We extend love and care the way that we can give.
NOW THAT MATTERS!
