It is important to note that the first comment made in this scripture about her is that of trustworthiness or faithfulness. Virtue is first of all matter of character rather than charisma. It is not first a matter of activities at home or outside that makes a woman godly or virtuous.
It is not first of all a matter of being able to make bags, bake cakes or do various things with our hands, even though that may be part of the outward manifestation of the internal virtue that God is talking about. It is also not a matter of playing Christianity. It is a matter of attitude of the heart, a matter of the life within.
From the oxford dictionary the word TRUSTWORTY, means to be worthy of trust or to be reliable.
It means to be dependable to handle or do something, use something or look after something properly or safely. It also means to risk leaving the decision about the progress of something to somebody.
When this virtue is in a woman, she will be faithful to all and in all her endeavours. She is faithful in relating with her husband. He trusts her because from his relationship and experience with her, he knows that she will not put him to shame. She is reliable. Important decision can safely be left for her to handle without any fear. Her faithfulness is so manifest that the heart of her husband safely trusts in her. He has no reason to suspect her.
Do you sometimes wonder why your husband or other people find it difficult to trust you?
Are you trustworthy? You need to pay close attention to this matter of being trustworthy.
How is she able to achieve such an excellence in character? It is because there is something of God in her.
She is a woman who fears the Lord (Prov. 31:30). A trustworthy heart comes from the Lord. Trustworthiness or faithfulness is an attribute of God, whose name is faithful and true.
Therefore, know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments. (Duet: 7:9)
No natural person is truly trustworthy. A human being may start as if he will be reliable but he will eventually fail whenever being trustworthy will be at the expense of his life and convenience. To be trustworthy therefore only begins when the life of God dwells in you.
