Honestly, a good woman is hard to find. An old maxim so old yet still true today. Anyway, for those searching – don’t lose hope, there are some wonderful ladies affiliated with ‘Relationships Do Matter’ online (FB group) but I digress. Anyway gentlemen, here are valuable tips guaranteed to be useful in your soul mate search.

Why search or bother looking?

Simply, because he who finds a good spouse, finds a good life— and even more: the favor of God!
(Proverbs 18:22 MSG)

Key Attributes of a good wife-

#1: Trustworthy
Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.

She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

#2: Hardworking
She finds wool and flax and busily spins it.

#3: Entrepreneurial
She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.

#4: Early Riser
She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

#5: Investment/Financial Savvy
She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.

She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night.

Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber.

#7: Generous
She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.

and sashes to sell to the merchants.

    I love it! Now, that’s the picture of a truly great woman!

    Except- I honestly don’t reeaally know that ‘she’ still exists in this present day. Maybe a sign of the times?

    But lately whenever I read this passage, I end up returning to the first part of verse 10. I sometimes wonder if the question was meant to be rhetorical.

    • A great woman and example indeed. They exist, they do exist the onus is on the ‘seeker’.

  • Nah! It’s no rhetoric… Or is Proverbs 20:6b a rhetoric too…? In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… and the Word was made flesh… (John 1:1,14). The Word (Christ) is our standard, and we just must needs get on with abiding therein more and more. The reflection thereof will invariably take care of itself; after all it is He at work in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure (Phil 2:13). So in summary, faithful men and virtuous woman actually still abound, they just don’t know it or believe it enough to show it and live it, me thinks.

    • Absolutely. This is a challenge to folks to rise to a higher level. It is absolutely not rhetorical, I agree.
