“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” ~Proverbs 31:10
The e-book I’ve been working on for years (literally) and that I’m now in the process of editing is based on the series of posts I wrote regarding the Proverbs 31 woman. There’s new material as well as application questions at the end of each section.
As I was seeking a title for the book, I did some research about rubies and discovered that they are one of the rarest and most expensive jewels. My heart was moved as I meditated on that fact.
As God inspired the writer of Proverbs, He purposely had him use the word “rubies.” Just as with all of God’s Word, it wasn’t a random selection, but a specific word that was chosen. God wanted us to understand just how valuable a virtuous woman is. She’s not just an amethyst, certainly beautiful in its own right, but a ruby. A man who has a virtuous woman for his wife – and children who have one for a mother – possess something unbelievably valuable, worth an extravagant sum.
No matter how you or I feel about ourselves today, when we seek to be virtuous women, God sees us as a priceless treasure! As we go about our tasks for the day, may that encourage and inspire us when consider our worth in His eyes.
