The Virtuous Woman

The “virtuous wife” described in Proverbs 31 inspires much discussion and even controversy. This poetic passage lays out the ideal for a wife, one who complements her husband and improves all aspects of life for her family. She is busy, hardworking, and successful; yet, her purpose in the things she does is always for the betterment of her family and in service to others. As time passes from her days as a newlywed to a young mother to ultimately an elderly woman, she constantly seeks opportunities whereby her growth and success can be reflected to others.
