14 marks of a wise woman...


Today I am sharing 14 marks of a wise woman. She...
  • Fears God, Proverbs 31:30.
  • “Openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness ,” Proverbs 31:26.
  • Is content to be a “keeper at home,” Titus 2:5. (This doesn’t mean she never leaves her house, but her focus and the bulk of her attention is on her home and family.)
  • Loves her husband and children, Titus 2:4.
  • Is focused more on inward character than outward adornment, I Peter 3:3-4.
  • Is modestly attired, I Timothy 2:9.
  • Is trustworthy, Proverbs 31:11.
  • Has a meek and quiet spirit, I Peter 3:4.
  • Is industrious, Proverbs 31:13-27.
  • Is giving, Proverbs 31:20, Luke 8:3.
  • Is discreet, Titus 2:5. (“of a sound mind, sane, in one’s senses, curbing one’s desires and impulses, self-controlled, temperate,”)
  • Is chaste, Titus 2:5.(“exciting reverence, venerable, sacred, pure; pure from carnality, chaste, modest; pure from every fault, immaculate; clean”).
  • Builds up instead of tearing down, Proverbs 14:1, Ephesians 4:29.
  • Is praiseworthy, Proverbs 31:28-31.
Do these marks describe you?

Now if someone asked your husband and children---would they wholeheartedly agree?

These are 14 marks that I strongly desire to have.  Some I achieve, some I need to work a little harder on.  But, by God's grace, it can be achieved.  Why not take one mark a week and work on it...in 14 weeks we should be more wise. :)
