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,
