Virtuous Women 1

A few days ago, we had the start of the new year which means... New Year's Resolutions! My resolutions 
are based on Proverbs 31:10-31 (the "virtuous woman" chapter of the Bible), and I will try to do a post a 
couple times a month on them.
The first verse, Proverbs 31:10 says: 
               "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies."

The first thing we see in this verse is that virtuous women are scarce. Who can find them? Nowadays, we 
see many women that are immodestly dressed, rude, gossipers, unfaithful to their families, and without many 
virtues. It's hard for men to find good women, and because they also are unfaithful, we find that divorces are 
common, relations before marriage is an option, and sin is rampant even in this free country of America. 
Again, who can find a virtuous woman?  
This isn't to say that there aren't any good and godly women. Most of us, maybe all of us, have known at 
least one person who was a great example in our lives. Someone who has helped us with our struggles, 
answered our questions to the best of their ability. There are virtuous women.Those women are worth far 
more than rubies, or any other earthly wealth. But it's not enough to know good, Christian women- we must 
dedicate ourselves to becoming one. Getting saved is the first step, because everyone has sinned. Just turn away from your sins, confess that you've messed up, and believe that Jesus can save you! After that, God will help you grow and become 
more like the woman He would have you to be. 
I'm not saying all of this to try to prove that I'm a perfect Christian- I have sooo many faults left (God is 
patient!). I'm saying this to get the word out. These virtuous women, (you, me, everyone!) have the power to
change the world. So let's get out there and do something great!!
