PROVERBS 12:4 – A NOBLE WIFE

S:  SCRIPTURE

Blog - Proverbs 124

O:  OBSERVATION

Definition – Free Dictionary.Com

NOBLE – Having or showing qualities of high moral character, such as courage, generosity, or honor: a noble spirit.

How can I be a wife of noble character?  First, I can have high morals.  I can be courageous/strong through trials, be generous to others and honor my husband.  I need to make him proud and honored that I am his wife.  I need to be constant, consistent, faithful, loving, gentle, and kind striving to keep peace always in my home.

This verse tells us the other side is a disgraceful wife that decays his bones.  Decaying bones are such an ugly picture, and I don’t want to be a disgraceful wife.  How do I accomplish that?  I take care of him and our home and children and grandchildren.  I try to look nice so he is proud of me.  I don’t want to lie, gossip or complain.  I want to be a wife that asks him how his day was instead of jumping on him as soon as he walks in the door or calls to check in during the day.

A:  APPLICATION

Being a wife of noble character I have to work on being a woman reflected by those principles of Proverbs 31.  Being a righteous woman I can influence my husband to be all He can be.

K:  KNEELING IN PRAYER

Father I pray that as I learn more and more of your Word that I will become more and more like You and the wife that is described in Proverbs 31.  AMEN.

  2. This is an area I really need work in. I give my poor husband a lot of grief at times. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any positive role models growing up. My mom was married several times, all ending in divorce. Thank you for this important and much needed encouragement, Debbie.
    I don’t think I’ve had a chance to stop by since your redesign. Love the new header :)!

    1. Thank you Candace. Hang in there. It’s the little things that men like. I love kissing mine goodbye in the morning, meeting him at the door when he gets home, and saying little things to him on the phone or sending him a text message during the day. Build him up and he’ll build you up. Never too late to change.

  3. Yes I think going through like this is very worthwhile, I’m Pondering the Psalms at the moment – one each Sunday and really enjoying that.

  4. I like how you shared the contrasts in this scripture. What is expected of wives and what is not. What encourages our husband and what tears him down. Not only should we pray to be a more noble wife but to also refrain from being a disgraceful one. Thank you for this post. Visiting from Testimony Tuesday. 🙂
