Proverbs Part 2: Chapters 16-31
Proverbs 12:4; 18:22; 19:13-14 A Prudent Wife Is A Gift.
If a Christian woman truly wants a Christian man, she should also be one after God’s own heart, who prizes the Lord and her own faith as more precious than silver or gold. Solomon said “he who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour from the LORD.” (Prov. 18:22) However, there are two kinds, for he also said that a contentious wife is like a continual drip, but “a prudent wife is from the LORD.” (Prov. 19:13-14) In other words, a prudent wife is a gift, a crown to her husband, more to be prized than riches. However, a bad one is a continual source of pain and anguish, a rottenness that goes to a man’s core (Pr. 12:4). Choose wisely, for by their fruit you shall know them (Mt. 7:15-20).
