Monthly Bible Question | March

What are the hallmarks of a woman of noble character?

Proverbs 31:30-31A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

In Proverbs 31, King Lemuel remembers what his mother told him about a “wife of noble character”. While the details may not be exactly applicable in the 21st century, the qualities are enduring! So, to mark International Women’s Day (3 March), here is a summary:

  • She fears God.

  • She supports her husband.

  • She is hardworking.

  • She is wise and responsible in the home as well as outside.

  • She ministers to the needy and cares for her employees.

  • She is respected by her husband and children.

And while she may be worth more than rubies, her reward is the appreciation from her family:

Her children rise up and bless her; her husband also, and he praises her, saying: “Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all.” (Proverbs 30:28-29)
