Woman: Noble Character

A woman of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her  and lacks nothing of value.  She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax  and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.  She considers a field and buys it;  out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:10-31

And I want women to be modest in their appearance.They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes.  For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do. 1 Timothy 2:9-10

This year 2014, lets focus on what is inside us than what others can see physically. I’m not saying we stop dressing up to look presentable. Its more on being presentable outside assuring that your inside look is presentable as well. Specially when others don’t see what we do. Let’s continue to be honest with ourselves. I think that’s what matters most. Honesty to thyself  and others will help us be the most beautiful human being we can be. All for the glory of our Maker, God.
