Proverbs 31: Part I, Trustworthy

A wife 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.
Proverbs 31:10-12

Proverbs 31 is a very good passage to memorize; it describes how to recognize a good wife. It says in the passage above that a good wife is 'worth far more than rubies'. Rubies are very valuable and precious, yet a noble wife is much more rare and valuable then them. It also says that her husband has full confidence in her, and lacks nothing of value. Apparently, a good wife is trustworthy, and her husband doesn't lose anything because of her foolishness.

A trustworthy woman would be trusted to go out shopping and not to come back with expensive, useless stuff. Her husband could trust her to use good judgement financially ( see verses 14-19 and other parts of Proverbs 31. I'll do a post on those later) and to always be faithful to him. How much good would a wife do if she isn't faithful, and instead brings trouble upon her husband? Not much.

A good way to practice being trustworthy is to prove that your wise. Use your money wisely, and also be a good friend, not a fair weather one. Then when you do get married, it'll be a lot easier.

More later, I have chores to do!

In Christ,
