A Virtuous Woman - Proverbs 31:10
Proverbs 31:10 - Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The woman in this passage is probably no single historic individual. This seems clear from the fact that the writer describes her impersonally in verse 10 as a "virtuous woman". The woman seems to be a role model who epitomizes wisdom. Her qualities and characteristics provide a standard of godly wisdom for women.
The Hebrew word translated "virtuous" means noble, excellent, and fine. It denotes strength, wealth, ability, valor, and dependability.
A virtuous woman is rare and extraordinary - just like a ruby. And when she is found - her value is priceless!
In order to become a virtuous woman, we must humble ourselves and see our flaws. We must be willing to change our attitudes, out thought patterns, our work ethic, our words, and what we spend our time on. Resolve to be a virtuous woman.
