  • Thabang Manonyane for verse 18
    For me to perceive that your merchandise is good, is learning more toward how she knows her value, she knows she is beautiful and she is high quality without being told, and she also appreciate the gift of a husband Go gives her and recognizes the value of that merchandise as well, she is satisfied, she perceiveth that her merchandise is good.

    I remember as a kid,that their were certain woman including my mom would clean the Church every Friday or Saturday; for no pay. As time rolled alone. People became sick or past away.my mom an one other lady I can't remember,took on that duty and bought their own supplies, until they couldn't any more for years. Do good works before night fall,because when night falls no man can work. In reference to Proverbs 31.

    God sees your work and searches our hearts. As this could be a trial to see where you heart is. Pray to your father in heaven and lay your burden upon him he is just and will help and comfort you.

    My mother is battling stage 4 cancer it is highly incurable. She can barely walk and will be in a wheel chair as her pelvic bone from the tumor is about to break.

    She told me the other day as she cried, if I could just walk across my floor to get a cup of water. The tears in her blue green eyes crushed me and I wanted to trade places with her.

    I hope God will heal her cancer, I pray for her to walk again. She would rejoice if she could clean her home and bathe her self. We have to examine ourselves and be thankful for each day we have and to remember not take anything for granted.

    Call 700 Club and let their prayer warriors keep your mom's name on that list.

    1-800 700 7000.

    Be comforted, no matter the outcome. My mother died a couple years ago. I thought if I could just get her on her feet, all would be better. I still miss seeing her on the sofa, watching her favorite shows. Have someone come do your Mom's hair.

    Is she a Christian?
  • Pauline
    clearning up the whole church all the time what no help in the church.Why is that?
  • Adam
    Hello, are you talking about cleaning the church and no one else is doing it? Are you volunteering or paid? People are scared right now from viruses. If the church is already clean and if no meetings, why does it need to be cleaned again? I don't know the answer to your question without more information. Volunteering is often a thankless job. Jesus healed people and only 1 out of 10 took the time to thank him. Such is the way of giving as we are called. God bless you.

    May God help me to be this kind of woman. In my youth I strayed, now that I am older, I am close to the Lord, however I still fall so short of this Proverbs 31 woman. God help us not to get caught up in whether a woman should/should not work outside the home. Let us just seek to be this woman with our whole heart, with the help of Jesus, wherever our life is called to be right now, doing any task at all, let us do it unto HIM. Colossians 3:23:
    And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

    As we Celebrate Mother’s Day, let us reflect on this Chapter of Proverbs? There is so much
    Truth for each Mother to Grasp? It touches so many Aspects of our Day-To-Day-Routine,
    Especially our Spiritual? We can never go through our Days without God’s Leading?
    It is highly impossible! We need Him every Second of our Lives? He wants to Bless us with
    all Spiritual Blessings: Awesome: Amen

    "Godliness with contentment is great gain," the Bible says. Being Godly means living according to the way of righteousness; pure, holy and upright before the Majesty on High. We cannot do that without being born by water and Spirit -- the Holy Ghost. Then, we MUST follow our new birth with being "transformed by the renewing of [our] minds" and living holy before the Lord. Come to God! He IS life!
  • Maggie
    I think it can relate to pleasing God also with your whole ❤ , and whatever it takes ,you want to make it in, that he tells you well done keeping your ❤ pure before him that men may see your works and Glorify God, Amen
  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale
    The woman spoken of is godly wisdom: and the virtuous woman who obeys God is of a meek and quiet spirit. But again ye are naked by your words. For the women in Christ cannot say the things ye say; for God permits them not. As it is written, Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also says the law.
  • Cheryl
    This is one of my favorite passages. This is always the passage I cite when people say women should only be mothers and housewives. This passages demonstrates that women are capable of working, engaging in commerce independently and can make wise decisions that bring prosperity to the household (buying the vineyard, selling garments and so forth).
  • Claire
    Cheryl: Please do not misunderstand this passage does NOT suggest that women should go out work in the workforce as we know it today. We are to be hard workers AT IN the HOME. God s Will for women is to stay at HOME, raise our children, guide the house while our husbands go out work. We can sell things we make from home, but are NOT called to get a job that takes us away from our home.
  • Js
    Deborah was a judge in the bible and Esther was a queen in the bible....so should work for women only be for those with a big assignment? A virtuous woman is not just found in housewives...it's a woman who is obedient to the voice of the Lord and staying true to who she is in the Lord. Women helped in Pauls ministry in the new testament as well...God has definitely given women assignments in life
  • Adam
    Hi Claire, do you know any scripture references that say God wants women staying 'home'? Do you think Mary and Joseph were sinning by having Jesus while travelling and not at a home?
  • Cheryl
    Ok. To each their own I guess, but in this economy few can survive on one salary. I'll be sure and tell all the female nurses and teachers that they need to pack up and go home. How will your sick be cared for? How will your children be educated? Let me guess? Home school? Do not disrespect the education and career that I have. You haven't had the experiences I have had.
  • G
    A virtues woman indeed.
  • Frieda Tobias
    Strong words
  • Kathy
    This Verse speaks Volume! Simply means that you can have all the beauty all the tricks of the trade. However , if you do not fear God and carry yourself like a lady the other things have no meaning. A woman that fears the Lord with Love and Respect is praised by God her husband and her children , she is a joy to those that know her.
  • Lady A
    I fear GOD and respect his Holy Name.....
    Truly I share PRAISE my God all the days of my life Love🙏🙏🙏
  • Bruce
    Being Godly or Virtuous doesn't Get One into His Kingdom. Mother Teresa will be in The Lake of Fire without The Blood of Christ. Speaking Evil of His People or His Way of Salvation Does Not Help His Cause. If The Father Calls Ask Forgiveness (John 6:44) When The Last Trumpet Sounds, to Late. Whoever is Not in The Book of Life is Cast Into The Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15)
  • I AM THAT I AM
    Verily, I tell you that none of Godly virtue are headed to that lake of fire. Yet, many antichrists (like yourself) are headed to that lake of fire. For it is written, The wicked are estranged [from] the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. But it is also written, (Every male that [opens] the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) God discerns the spirit, not the flesh.
  • Bruce
    Not Sure what Your Saying? There are Many Virtuous People on The Wide Road That are Headed to The Lake of Fire and their Pride Goes With Them. Thanks to The Lamb and His Cleansing Blood We can be on The Narrow Road Which Leads to Ever Lasting Life.( Revelation 20:15, Revelation 1:5, Matthew 7:13-14)
  • Angela Hunter
    I am praying that I will become the very essence of a Virtuous Woman, by the Grace of God.
  • Carol Evans
    These are words of wisdom given by King Solomon. Words that give us an exact picture of women of every century.... from the past and present. The responsibilities of the true Christian woman who wants to live a virtuous life. Let us all deem the words of being a good woman daily.
  • Dina
    Wonderful advice given by a mother to her son. What mother doesn't want her son to have such a wife? I fear that Solomon's mother raised her son's expectations too high. Could this explain his reason for having so many wives? He looked for the perfect woman all his life; he kept marrying and marrying. If his writings in Ecclesiastes are any indication, he never found her.
  • Liz
    Every good man should have one.
  • Chrystol
    Who can find a virtuous women? Do they still exist? I pray that when my son is old enough she will be found! He's 15, raised in the church, have a positive attitude, good group of friends, honor roll student, Loves the Lord Jesus Christ. I know I'm a virtuous women. My husband is a minister, along with Christ in our lives the foundation is already set. Have a Blessed Day All of You. ☺
