The Mark of a Foolish Woman
She is not satisfied with the mate God has provided…
Rather than looking to God to fulfill the deepest needs and longings of her heart,
she focuses on what she does not have and looks to others to meet those needs.
Rather than pouring her love, attention, and devotion upon her husband,
she invests her heart, energy, and efforts in another man, other vain pursuits and material things.
Do not follow the path of the foolish woman!!!!
But learn steadily and faithfully the marks of a wise woman. And your efforts will be blessed!
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?
