Qualities of an Amazing Woman and Wife

A peaceful life begins at home. If we are married, or are planning to get married.we need to make sure we possess the qualities of a noble woman and wife. In this blog post, I will lay out what I found in 2 different passage - One in the New Testament, and one in the old.

 

From I Peter 3:1-5

 

  • Pure
  • Reverent
  • **Submissive  and respectful to husband
  • Beauty doesn’t come from outward adornment like braided hair or gold jewelry
  • Inner beauty manifested in gentleness and a quiet spirit

 

** What does submissive mean? She yields to the authority of her husband, regardless of whether or not he is Christian and keeps his end of the commitment. She submits to him because God has made him head of the household (Eph 5:23). It’s easier to submit if they treat us with respect and honor, but we show an even more noble character if we are submissive even when they do not. If she chose to marry him, she knows she is to acknowledge his place of respect in the household. 

 

From Prov 31: 10-31
