Tenets of the Virtuous Woman

Women were created from and for men. God gave instructions to both sex in how they should operate in the earth.  Accordingly, the virtuous woman is one who fully obeys God and one that displays royalty, loyalty, peace, joy and ultimately love.

Proverbs 31:10-31 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar. …

 

Tenets of the Virtuous Woman:
Submissive

The man is the Head and the woman is his help. What this means is, the man has the authority and makes the final decision(s) in marriage. It is therefore important ladies, that you choose your husband carefully because if he is directed by some other being other than God, your life is about to be hell.

1 Corinthians 11:3  But  I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
 Faithful

A woman must be completely faithful to her husband! If she feels for one reason or several that the marriage is not working out, she must seek counsel and if it reaches a stage of abuse, she must make the decision to escape  but she should never cheat!

Hebrews 13:4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.


 
Nurturing & Loving
Women must be comforting and loving. 
Ambitious and Hard-working
Contrary to what many believe, God never said a woman should stay in the house and only cook and clean. He said He will make man a “Helper” which means to assist the man. So yes women should work and yes women should be ambitious.
Proverbs 31:16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
 
Responsible
Women are to ensure their households are well-fed, well-dressed and organized. The woman is responsible for her husband’s and children’s well-being.

Women need a guide and the best guide is God.
