A virtuous wife

Written by Christopher Opey Tetteh.

"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life." (NIV) Proverbs 31:10-12

A loving spouse can always see the good in you even when you can't, and not bearing grudges or getting angered by a little error.

Let's read a beautiful story of a couple. Christopher came home heartbroken. How could he tell his dear wife that he had just been fired from his job at the customhouse? The last thing he wanted her to think was that he was a failure, even though he felt as if the word "failure" was embroidered across his chest. However, to his surprise, when he told his wife what had happened, she responded with joy. "Now you can write your book!" she said optimistically. "And what shall we live on while I am writing it? Christopher replied dejectedly. His wife, Rita, immediately went to a drawer and to his amazement, pulled out a substantial sum of money and handed it to him. "How did you accumulate all this amount of money?" Chris quizzed Rita, completely shocked. "I have always known you were a man of genius." Rita said with a wink and a smile. I knew that someday you would write a masterpiece. Every week, out of the money you gave me for housekeeping, I saved a little bit. Here is enough to last us for one whole year." So Christopher, buoyed by his wife's confidence, turned to his writing and authored many books.

Women, such as Rita are very resourceful and industrious in their marriage. A little opportunity given to them, and they will explore it to the benefit of everyone in the family. Any virtuous wife is a mother, helper, caretaker, deliverer, and a package of good things to her husband.

You must seek to become a virtuous woman to your husband, children and the world.
