Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:

The Good Wife


It is hard to find a good wife,
because she is worth more than rubies.

Her husband trusts her completely.
With her, he has everything he needs.

She is strong and is respected by the people.
She looks forward to the future with joy.

She speaks wise words
and teaches others to be kind.

She watches over her family
and never wastes her time.

Her children speak well of her.
Her husband also praises her,
saying, “There are many fine women,
but you are better than all of them.”

Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you,
but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned;
she should be praised in public for what she has done.

– Proverbs 31:10-31 NCV

At the beginning of man’s time, he knew something was missing in his life when there was no woman for him. (Genesis 2:18-20) God knew that out of everything he created, this situation was not good. As he took steps to fill in what was missing, he noted his intention that she be considered one and the same as her husband. (Genesis 2:22) A godly woman can be the difference for her husband’s salvation. (1 Peter 3:1-2)

A vast majority of the women of young America fit the Proverbs 31 description. They pioneered this land and made it the great Christian nation that it is. They were responsible for its growth, godliness, and family values. It is no wonder that we see these things deteriorating right before us as the nation continues to devalue the family as God designed it.

It is too bad that there are those that think they can do better with a mate other than what Proverbs 31 describes. They are turning their backs on the very beauty of God!
