"A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones."
New Living Translation
"A worthy wife is a crown for her husband, but a disgraceful woman is like cancer in his bones."
On the 31st of each month I try to read the infamous Proverbs 31: 10-31. It gives me encouragement, instructions, and quiet a challenge to live with such character, moral integrity, and grace. I will just share the last seven verses but highly encourage you woman and men to read from verse 10. Men should pray these qualities for their wife and woman should seek to be a woman like this which is pleasing unto the Lord, her husband, and children. Have a blessed weekend!
"She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise." Proverbs 31:25-31
