A Wise Woman Proverbs

A Wise Woman Proverbs

A wise woman does not carry her man’s God-given burden of supporting the family. If she does, he will become weak, lazy, disillusioned, and depressed, and she will become bossy, weary, worn, and angry.

A wise woman will do her duty diligently, caring for her home and children, cooking and serving others—what the Bible calls “a keeper at home.”

A wise woman will be gracious. She will cultivate humility and a servant’s nature—what the Bible calls “shamefacedness.” Her husband will cherish her and others will be thankful to call her a friend.

A wise woman will be kind and longsuffering, not controlling or pushy. Strangers will be blessed by having met her—that includes waitresses and store clerks. Due to her goodwill and graciousness she will be liked and appreciated by all.

A wise woman will be open to counsel, always learning and striving to overcome any weakness or faults. Her husband will be encouraged by her openness and willingness to grow.

A wise woman will be generous and serving; never greedy in her friendships. Her husband will gain respect from friends and business associates because of her kind, thoughtful behavior.

A wise woman will be careful in how she spends money on temporal things knowing every dollar spent means hours of her husband’s labor away from the family. She will train her children to be wise, honorable, and kind. Her husband will have cause to rejoice that his labor is not poured upon the ground, but is used with honor, thus he is honored.

A wise woman is always the lady, gracious, generous, full of gratitude and good works. Let me always be a “4-G” lady.

  1. This is all very well, but living in South Africa with no work for white men, I have been supporting the family for 6 years now. My husband has been doing any work that comes his way and applies for jobs on a daily basis, just to be told that he is too white. What does a woman do in this position? I have never blamed him for our situation, but I fear that this has impacted on him personally because he is not able to support his own family. We have been praying about this for a very long time now and fasted aswell but no answers. My husband is currently looking after our 17 month old girl full time while our 2 boys are at school. Our roles have been reversed completely and not by choice. My husband is not lazy. Your response will be appreciated.

    1. I think the main point is to please your husband and submit to his leading, even if that means to go to work and be the earner. God knows if you're in a carrier to gain fullfillment and to have a break from home or if you're in a job because that's what your husband thinks you should do. Do you know the song "voice of thruth"? Listen to it on YouTube. God bless you!!

  2. Really needed this. I've read "Created" many times over the past few 4-5 years. It made such a difference in my life. My husband noticed a real difference in me and in our relationship. Recently though, I've struggled beyond struggle... My husband has commented several times about me going back to the "old me". It's hurtful and yet, I know it's true. I can't seem to get back on track no matter how much I try. I don't want to live this way. My hearts desire is to be the helpmeet God created me to be.

  3. I strongly disagree with the first paragraph here. The Proverbs 31 "considered a field and bought it" don't think she was buying it not to work and bring income in do you? If you are writing about submission that is one thing but if you are writing and telling people women should not work, that is another.

    1. She may have been buying the land to work it, lease it out or resale at a profit (or all three over the course of time). Submission may mean a wife going to work, but not for the purpose of working instead of her husband (unless he is for some reason incapacitated and incapable of working).
