The Worth Of Your Wife

Proverbs 31 primarily describes the “wife of noble character.” It is a description of the kind of woman that King Lemuel’s mother wanted him to find to be his wife. The last verse of the chapter says this:

Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. – Proverbs 31:31 (NIV)

Lemuel’s mother says that he needs to honor her and praise her for what she does. The leaders of the community would gather at the city gate to conduct business. It was there that her husband should praise her in front of his friends and colleagues. Men, how do you talk about your wife when you are in front of your friends? Do you praise her for who she is and what she does? Or do you complain and make jokes at her expense? Your wife is worth more than that! Do not put her down or complain about her to others. Instead, you should build her up and praise her. Too often we take our wives for granted and we fail to encourage them and love them as Christ loved the church. Let us repent of how we treat our wives and start to treasure them as a wonderful gift from God that He has given to us.
