FAMILY UNITY

Proverbs 31:10-17

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.  The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.  She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

 

EXAMPLE

Bishop Taylor came the closest of anyone to capturing the sentiment of Proverbs 31 when he wrote: “If you are for pleasure, marry. If you prize rosy health, marry. A good wife is heaven’s last best gift to a man; his angel of mercy; minister of graces innumerable; his gem of many virtues; his box of jewels; her voice, his sweetest music; her smiles, his brightest day; her kiss, the guardian of innocence; her arms, the pale of his safety; the balm of his health; the balsam of his life; her industry, his surest wealth; her economy, his safest steward; her lips, his faithful counselors…and her prayers, the ablest advocates of heaven’s blessing on his head.”

LESSON

A wise woman builds her house , which means she builds her house with the labor of her love. She does not purposely destroy, nor does she allow another access which also means she builds her man up with encouragement and love with an intensity that translates to the man who realizes the treasure he has found. If he is not treasuring you ask yourself what you are doing wrong.

Wisdom is valuable . She is worth more than precious stones. Her value is more than silver or gold. You can put your money in a bank. The bank will pay you an income. However, the bank is not as good as Wisdom. If you give your life to Wisdom, she will pay more than any bank. No bank can make your life longer. But Wisdom can give a long life. No bank can promise you a place in heaven. But wisdom can promise this. No bank can make you right with God. Wisdom can do this. With wisdom a mother can influence her children and her love is powerful. It teaches, it heals, it uplifts and has the ability to place vision in the heart of a child.
