As women of God, our first concern must always do what pleases God. We need to know God’s Heart. To know God’s heart, we must read His word then take His word to our Heart and live out God’s word daily. We need to be the wives God called us to be. Proverbs 31 is a great example for women and wives to live out the word of God in our families.
A Proverbs 31 wife isn't perfect, but she loves the Lord and strives to become a wife pleasing to her husband and God. Wives can be godly without being perfect. We will never be perfect, but when we grow more intimate in our relationship with Jesus Christ, we grow increasingly godly in our marriage. As wives, our call is to love, submit, and respect our husbands out of reverence for Jesus. We must prayerfully approach the Lord and ask Him to give us His eyes to see things from His perspective and ears to hear His voice. Proverbs 31 illustrates a beautiful picture of a godly woman. I encourage you to prayerfully take the time and read Proverbs 31. Godliness means "Christ-likeness" to strive to imitate Christ in thought and action.
Our daily lives and the demands on our lives can cause us to loss focus. Let your marriage bloom and let it begin with you.
