Sunday Devotional: The woman who fears the Lord

Proverbs 31:10-12, 17, 20, 25-26, 30-31

When one finds a worthy wife,
her value is far beyond pearls.
Her husband, entrusting his heart to her,
has an unfailing prize.
She brings him good, and not evil,
all the days of her life….
She girds herself with strength;
she exerts her arms with vigor….
She reaches out her hands to the poor,
and extends her arms to the needy….
She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and laughs at the days to come.
She opens her mouth in wisdom;
kindly instruction is on her tongue….
Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting;
the woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her a reward for her labors,
and let her works praise her at the city gates.

In our time, the passage in Proverbs 31 about the good wife has become politically incorrect and cringe-worthy to the “modern” woman, especially the part about the wife weaving wool and flax with skillful hands (Proverbs 31:13).

But did you know that throughout human history, women had been the guardians of morality?

Being child-bearers and child-rearers, women have a vested interest in a morality-governed social order — of marital fidelity and commitment, law and order, and all the attendant virtues.

In the words of Irish poet John Boyle O’Reilly (1844-1890):

Women are at once the guardians and the well-spring of the world’s faith, morality, and tenderness; and if ever they are degraded to a commonplace level with men, this fine essential quality will be impaired, and their weakness will have to beg and follow where now it guides and controls.

So much of our present darkness and woes can be attributed to women having foresaken their crucial role as guardians of morality and the good. Instead, women now champion their right to kill their unborn and even the newly-born. “Feminists” take pride in being sluts, callously and heartlessly calling their unborn children “parasites”.

That is why I believe abortion is a portal to the demonic.

Instead of the grotesqueries that women have become, this is what women and good wives should be.

May the peace of love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

~Eowyn

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this remarkable post. I take my examples of true femininity from the Blessed Mother Mary, my natural mother, Mary Agnes, St. Joan of Arc,, St. Veronica, St. Therese of the Little Flower, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta and you. We must be faithful servants of Our Lord, loving Him with everything that makes us who we are through joy and suffering, good times and bad times-it is this devotion and faithfulness to Our Lord that defines our femininity. May God continue to bless you and give you tremendous graces. Much love… Read more »

Dr Eowyn . . . you have really outdone yourself. This article is exactly what is needed in our society for today. The last picture regarding “women vs the devil” is priceless. May we see the day when more and more young women are raised with values such as that.

Excellent post. I do believe women should be the guardians of morality, and we are now seeing just how detrimental it has been for the world now that so many are not. I truly cannot wrap my head around the massive number of pedophiles and child sex trafficking in the world. I think now that men can have sex with women so easily (Tinder, etc.) that the thrill of that chase has gone away and has left some with that need for the next taboo. If women could go back to being the guardians of morality I think the world… Read more »

Ziggy . . . Your statement regarding “women returning as the guardians of morality” and our society being better off due to this realignment is absolutely right on! All of the “women’s liber’s” nonsense has done nothing but tear our society apart.

Not all women are this far gone, Thank God. But feminism gave society the false idea that women, due to all the subjugation they’ve endured, have, by that very fact, the right to run the show.

Yes, most women are intelligent enough to run the show. But they would do so with malice aforethought, predicating their ability on a false authority which is a hatred of men.

As a man, I will have to call B.S. on this and stand up for my own gender and authority. In other words, these people are inverting reality. IT IS DEMONIC.

Sarah Pierrepont (1723) By Jonathan Edwards “They say there is a young lady in [New Haven] who is beloved of that Great Being, who made and rules the world, and that there are certain seasons in which this Great Being, in some way or other invisible, comes to her and fills her mind with exceeding sweet delight; and that she hardly cares for any thing, except to meditate on him—that she expects after a while to be received up where he is, to be raised up out of the world and caught up into heaven; being assured that he loves… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this excellent post. I have long thought of feminism as a bane on society–distorting women (who under the influence of feminism hate being women–quite an irony!) and as a result weakening society to the point of demonic takeover. Thank you thank you for this excellent post.

Thank you, Dr. Eowyn, for holding up truly honorable women for examples to all women. I married one of them, and am so grateful for that fact every day.
