My wife has a tremendous capacity to love and has a special gift for working with children. It is a beautiful gift. But when I see her caring for our sick children, my wife never looks lovelier. Her voice softens and soothes their hurt and her gentle yet firm hands caress their hurting bodies. As she attends to their needs, her inner loveliness blossoms yet more and I find myself irresistibly drawn to her.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
In Proverbs 31:10-31, the Bible gives us the attributes of a godly woman. She is a woman who looks after her family, her husband, and her household. If ever there were a description of a superwoman, this is it. In the end, a truly beautiful and lovely woman is one who fears God and first focuses upon her relationship with Him. And this is why my wife is truly lovely.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
If you have a godly woman as a wife, thank God for truly blessing you! It is the type of marriage that God desires for all couples. Of all the relationships that are mentioned in the Bible, only one, the love between a husband and wife is compared to the love that Jesus Christ has for His Church. When the world looks at a godly marriage, they should see the love of Jesus Christ clearly radiating as the Sun of Righteousness.
Thanks be to God for blessing me with a godly wife!
