A Woman of Worth

Pass by any jewelry store and you will notice the bright lights and securely locked casings around all the valuable jewelry. The sparkle and the colored gems catch the human eye as the light is refracted in all directions. The ruby was perhaps the rarest of the colored gems in ancient times as it is today. Proverbs 31:10 tells us:

“A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies.”

 

Each of us measure worth by different means. The worth of a godly woman is not measured in dollars and cents or shining refracted light. It is far MORE valuable than any precious stone. In the Book of Proverbs, we have seen more than a few examples of the dangers of an adulterous woman. It is altogether fitting that the closing chapter speaks of a praiseworthy woman. Who we are will always speak loudly and be reflected in what we do. The woman of worth is characterized by many virtues. The list is eye-catching and intimidating in Proverbs 31 . She in fact doesn’t exist! But when Christ takes hold of a woman’s heart and life, and she is led by the Holy Spirit on a daily basis, she begins a transformation process which will bring her praise in the eyes of her husband, her family and society. Come listen on Sunday as we examine just what those qualities are. Her influence cannot be underestimated in our confused world of gender roles and identity.
