|The Priceless Woman Study|
The virtuous woman’s husband was well known in the gates of the city. He was known to have a good wife at home. He was well respected because his wife was virtuous with strength of character. He was cheerful, pleasant, gave wise counsel, reliable, and responsible because he had an agreeable wife at home. He didn't sit with the other men and complain about his home situation with a scowl on his face. His home was clean, organized, well decorated, thoroughly supplied and prosperous. He was happy, his wife was happy, his children were happy, and their servants were happy. He was a man of "valour,” and he had a "virtuous” wife.
The virtuous woman’s husband sits among the elders. He has wisdom that is far beyond his years because he is strong, and his wife is strong. All who know him understand he would not have a virtuous woman at home unless he was a man of "valour.” A man of "valour” is a "strong” man. He has the same strong attributes as his virtuous wife. Remember, the word "virtue” and the word "valour” both come from the same Hebrew root word, "chayil,” in the Scriptures. "Virtue,” and "valour” both mean the same thing…… "strong, a force, whether of men, means or other resources; an army, wealth, virtue, valor, strength: --able, activity, army, band of men (soldiers), company, (great) forces, goods, host, might, power, riches, strength, strong, substance, train, valiant, valour, virtuous, worthy.”
GEM FOR TODAY: Father, I thank you that you have created me to be strong. I agree with Your will for my life. I desire to use my gifts and talents for the benefit of others as I pursue my destiny and purpose to Your glory. As I make the needed changes in my life, and I pray that Your appointed man of valour/woman of virtue manifests in my life. (Men say) I AM A MAN OF VALOR, AND I VALUE GOD'S PRICELESS WOMAN!!! (Women say) I AM GOD'S PRICELESS WOMAN!!! In Jesus' Name, Amen
