Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies (Prov. 31:10)
He who find a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord. (Prov. 18:22)
What a question! And what a search everywhere for women of virtue.
The heavens are looking for virtuous women, who can truly and thoroughly, represent God here on earth, and fulfil His reason for their existence.
Men are looking for such women to marry so that they can completely and gloriously fulfil God’s purpose for their lives. Even young men who have messed up several young ladies in sexual immorality, when they at last desire to marry, often look for godly ladies, virgins who have been properly brought up.
Children all over the world are also quietly groaning, looking for such women to be mothers to them, so that their lives can be properly moulded and helped to maturity.
Furthermore, many communities are also quietly looking for women of virtue to mould their young people and make them great. The earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the manifestation of the daughters of God in this respect. This shows that even from human perspective, a virtuous woman is highly needed everywhere, her price is more than rubies. This is a clear indication of the treasure, glory and dignity in godly womanhood.
Yet it is Christ in her that makes her such a treasure. Every woman who has been saved and redeemed from sin is expected to be a bundle of virtues. Christ in her makes her a container, a carrier and a channel of good things. In Christ are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and this same Christ is in her. This is what makes her a treasure. Her price is far more than rubies.
Such a woman is often referred to in the scriptures as a virtuous woman. God’s presence and God’s favour in the life of a woman is a virtue. This is the virtue that makes her precious. When a woman manifests godly virtue, she has capacity to make her husband great.
