Woman of Worth

A godly women represents well the kingdom of God, her husband, and her children. Her character is known beyond the home or the church. Her influence is felt in the community.

Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
The victorious women possesses uncommon character, business acumen, and the ability to counsel and mentor others. Truly, she is, as the writer explained, a women worth far more than rubies. Women today would do well to emulate her virtues if they desire to merit the same praise, and men would do well to honor the women in their lives as the rare treasures they are.
The praises of this women issue not only from the mouths of her husband and her children but also from people in the community who, though not necessarily religious, can recognize the value of this women's works. Her attractive but modest appearance and her appropriate actions, demeanor, and speech do not create her chargers; they reveal it.
What about the single women?
1Corinthians 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
The same thing happens for single Christian women. Single women have a light of Christ and should let that light shine in the world that they may know our Father in heaven. My prayer and encouragement for you, the Christian single woman, is "May your eyes be more like a window that can see the world’s needs around you and less like a mirror that only lets you see yourself."
The man and the woman are not to compete with each other, but to complete each other.
