If you read Proverbs 31:10, you’ll find that it describes the “virtuous wife”, whose worth is “far above rubies”. So some husbands tell their wives, “Darling, it would be wonderful if you were the Proverbs 31 woman!”
The secret to being the woman in Proverbs 31 is at the tail end of the chapter—“Her husband…praises her”! (Proverbs 31:28) Her husband has learnt the value of praising her. He knows how to use his words to nourish her.
But we husbands are quick to criticize our wives and slow to praise them. When they prepare a meal that tastes really good, we don’t say a word. But the moment there is something we don’t like about the meal, we complain!
Guys, if you want your wife to be like the woman in Proverbs 31, learn to give her praise and honor. It will bring you success too!
