Proverbs 31:10

An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above Jewels. NASB

What follows from verse 10 to verse 31 is a daunting list for any woman to live up to. Perhaps that is why Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines, but we read in 1 Kings 11:3 that they turned his heart away.

I don’t know if a wife can live up to all that is contained in these 21 verses. What I do know is that the Bible tells us that when a man and a woman are married the two become one flesh. Genesis 2:24.

I also know that the Church is the bride of Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:22-33; Revelation 19:7-9.

God has gifted the Church with spiritual gifts for the common good we read in 1 Corinthians 12.

In Ephesians 4:15&16 we read, But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. NASB Do what you know for God.
