The Bible Describes a Capable Wife

The Bible Describes a Capable Wife

Proverbs chapter 31 contains a weighty message to King Lemuel from his mother. Her wise counsel taught him what to look for in a capable wife.

A capable wife is trustworthy

31:10-12

  • She provides valuable suggestions concerning family decisions while remaining submissive

  • Her husband trusts her to make wise decisions, not insisting that she obtain his approval for every matter

A capable wife is industrious

31:13-27

  • She learns to be thrifty and live modestly so that her family can be neatly dressed, presentable, and well-nourished

  • She works hard and watches over her household day and night

A capable wife is spiritual

31:30

  • She fears God and cultivates a personal relationship with him
