CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VIRTUOUS WOMAN 8

Character #8

The 8th characteristic of the virtuous woman is that she is HARDWORKING.

HA…AAAARDWORK

What I mean by hardworking is that the virtuous woman has taken full responsibility of all the duties expected of her, and she’s committed to ensuring that productive results are achieved. To the extent that even when her day had been so rough and tiring, she is quick to folds up her sleeves as soon as she gets home to diligently attend to all her duties as a wife and a mother.

That is when she girds herself up with strength and strengthens her arms (Proverbs 31:17); to get the supper ready,  bath the kids and wash the dishes. Any help on her way to delivering her duties is embraced, but not requested by her.

And let’s not confuse a hardworking woman with a busibody. There is a clear cut difference between the two. The Hard-worker gets the job done without complaint whereas the Busybody appears to be very busy working something but nothing really gets done by her. So it’s a Saturday and Mrs. Busybody brings out the clothes to do laundry, she seem to be scrubbing the bathroom too as well as attending to the flowers in the garden, she promised to deliver a parcel too at a friend’s party. By the time the day is over she ends up getting nothing done.

wp-image-286104283jpg.jpgLaziness is non-existent in the dictionary of the virtuous woman. Never! She does not come up with flimsy excuses  as to why there’s delays in delivering her responsibilities. You cannot be lazy if you have chosen this road of curiousness with me. Let the young man who is choosing a wife be wise and not overlook hard work.

If you are a woman, especially from the part of this continent that I am from (Ghana), then permit me to remind you that cooking is your duty as well as laundry, washing dishes, tidying up the house, bathing the kids and getting them ready for school, some errands, etc. The earlier you gird up your loins the better. 

Come to think of it, what relief it will be if your husband and children take responsibility for some of these chores. On behalf of the virtuous wives, I humbly plead with their faithful husbands to try and help out with house chores.

  1. Excellent. Some women actually now think that because of gender equality, their duties and responsibilities in marriage should be shared. Let a woman perform her wifely duties – home management. Let the man perform his manly duties. If each of us finds it worthy to extend a helping hand under no compulsion, then that is good. If not, let each person perform the marital duties responsibly
