What Are We Producing?

Every wise woman builds her house: but the foolish plucks (destroys) it down with her hands.
Proverbs 14:1

The foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knows nothing.
Proverbs 9:13

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Proverbs 31:10

Here’s a simple question for us women, particularly wives…what are we producing? Selah

When our husbands come home, what do they see us producing?  Do they come home to peace? Do they come home to respect? Do they come home to order? OR do they come home to confusion?  Do they come home to chaos? Do they come home to a nagger?  Do they come to home to a sexless relationship?

What fruits are we showing?  Are we showing love?  Are we showing peace?  Are we showing patience?  Are we showing strength? OR are we showing anger?  Are we showing depression? Are we showing discouragement?  Are we showing bitterness?  ….by their fruit ye shall know them.

A virtuous woman:  serves God with all her heart, she respects her husband, she teaches her children, she cares for her body, she serves her husband/family/friends, she wise with money, she creates an inviting atmosphere, she time manages, and she has inner beauty that only comes from Christ (http://avirtuouswoman.org/10-virtues-of-the-proverbs-31-woman/).  Whewww…no wonder we can be better than rubies.

Women, we have the power in the home.  Let’s remember that.  We were created to be helpmeets.  Not tearing our men down or overruling them.  We also are to remember we have Christ to represent.  Should we be a stumbling block, yes even to our husbands?  No.  Let’s remember we are in the world, but we are NOT of the world.  Let’s strive to produce good fruit, even in our homes starting with our husbands. Let’s face it; our men need us to be that virtuous woman.  Amen!
