“He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the LORD.”Proverbs 18:22 NASB
Guys have you ever wanted something really bad? Once you obtain it you take care of it. You do this because it is something you really wanted. If this item is so important that means it is good. If it was not good why did you want it to begin with?
When you are dating you hope to find a good woman. You might even pray that God sends a good woman. I hope that you pray this when you are searching for a wife. You do not want a wife that is not good. When you find a good wife you have obtained a great thing from the Lord.
Here are some characteristics of a good woman:
Loves God – This is number one because it is so important. The love for God must take priority in our lives. If your wife does not love God she cannot love you. God is the source and example for love. Guys this goes both ways. We must love God first then our wives.
A heart of gold – One quality of my wife that I admire the most is her pure heart. She will do anything for anyone. She has has such a gracious heart.
Loves her family – A good woman will love her family. This means her spouse, children, and the extended family. It is a beautiful thing to see the love of a woman for her children. She will love her children no matter what they do.
Beautiful – As I talk about beauty I want to talk more about what’s on the inside. Physical beauty fades but what is on the inside does not. A good woman’s character will make her beautiful inside and out.
Humble – A good woman will remain humble because she knows that she is where she is because of God. A good woman is not proud and boastful.
Respects you – A good woman will respect you not because you demand respect but because she loves you. She will respect you because you are the spiritual head of the household.
Hard worker – A good woman will be a hard worker. She will work hard at home to keep the household running smoothly. She will also work to help provide for the family if necessary.
When you find a good woman treat her right. Take care of her and your marriage. You should equally be a good husband. You need to treat her better than you could ever expect to be treated.
I have found a good woman. I am very thankful to God for such a great gift. She is a blessing to me and my family. I am the first to admit I am not the best husband. I want to challenge every man to treat their wife as a gift from God. Guys we need to man up and be godly husbands if we expect our wives to be godly.
