The Price of a Virtuous Woman
Just a short note for today’s entry on Christian Living
Proverbs 31:10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”
But just how much are rubies worth? I really don’t know the answer to this question, but an ad from a florist got me thinking about it. This February, this florist company is giving away 1,101 ruby and diamond pendants in a sweepstakes. Each necklace is worth $60,000! That is hard to fathom. What would the necklace be worth if the pendant had only rubies and no diamonds?
God really does place a high value on being a virtuous woman. Her price is far above rubies!
Am I a virtuous woman? Are you a virtuous woman? Check out Proverbs 31 and see how many of God’s criteria you match. When you look at your life, do you see God’s description of a virtuous woman?
We can be virtuous women because we have a virtuous Saviour living in our hearts. “A woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30b)
