Character #3

This character of the Virtuous Woman is actually my favourite and has hence necessitated a promise I have made myself: “I will do him good and not evil all the days of my life” (Proverbs 31:12).

Which character am I talking about?


FAITHTULNESS is a virtue and the make of the Virtuous Woman.

A faithful wife is like the camel, and like the camel she is the faithful companion of the traveller (husband) upon the desert. She makes up her mind to remain faithful in both times of good and bad. Her mindset is echoed in the words of the officiating minister at the marriage altar –  “… for richer and for poorer, in sickness and in health… till death do you part”. Faithfulness defined!

And so, I ask you aspiring Virtuous Woman. Would you be faithful in times when…

  • Your mother -in-law pressurises you to give her a grandchild after five years of marriage?
  • You have become the sole bread-winner of the family?
  • Your boss is offering a solution to your family’s financial predicaments in exchange for extramarital affairs?

Bear this in mind that, the richest man on earth is not necessarily the one with the greatest wealth, rather, the one surrounded with faithful men. The price of the Virtuous Woman is far above rubies (Proverbs 31:10).

I entreat you to be faithful at all times as a wife, a mother, and a woman. For the presence of a faithful wife is a fountain of eternal peace, joy, and happiness.




  1. Well said. The virtuous woman is truly a faithful one. But, how does she show her faithfulness to her husband when she is pressurized by her mother-in-law to produce children when she does not have any chance to do so?
