Daily Verse: “An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.” Prov. 31:10

Excellent wife.

Finding a wife of noble character blesses any man. Described as virtuous, honorable, and strong, she works hard to create a loving home for her family and friends. Like wisdom, her value far exceeds that of precious jewels.

“She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” Prov. 31:12

For years, I prayed these verses over my life and my husband’s long before I met him. Knowing my many shortcomings, I hung these verses on my bedroom wall and began to pray them, asking God to mold me into a wife of noble character.

Ruth gives us a glimpse of an excellent wife. Found in the Old Testament, the Moabite woman endures heartache and suffering, losing her husband and leaving her homeland to follow her widowed mother-in-law back to Bethlehem. Eventually, she married Boaz and secured a place in Christ’s lineage from her virtuous life dedicated to the Lord.

Strive for excellence and develop a noble character with God’s word.

Lord, thank You for giving us Ruth as a model of a noble woman. Help us pursue excellence by developing a strong character based on virtuous and honorable ways. Let us become more precious than jewels to our spouses. IJNIP. Amen
