Women of God
Proverbs 31:25-31
Why are you in school? It true that you are here to learn about history, math, and Japanese. But more importantly, you are in school to learn how to be an adult. You should learn how to work well with other people, how to meet deadlines, how to handle many tasks, etc. Your mother and father and grandparents and teachers all began to become adults in high school and college. I also started to “grow up” into an adult in high school. Even now I am still growing into a woman. You are now girls, but you will soon become women. Becoming an adult—and becoming a woman—is a long process that continues your whole life. You are now beginning the process of changing from girl to woman.
As an adult—as a woman—you must be many things. You must be wise with money, you must be strong enough to get through hard times, and you must work hard to live a comfortable life. Are you ready to do all of these things now? Probably not yet. But you are beginning to learn about these things in school and at home. What kind of woman do you want to be? Have you thought about your character as a woman? Have you thought about how you should behave as an adult and as a woman? What is a woman of God like? The Bible gives us an idea of what God thinks is a good woman. Let’s look at that today:
  • v. 25 A godly woman is strong: not just physically, but mentally and spiritually. She can handle any problem because she relies on God.
  • v. 26 A godly woman is wise: she knows when to speak and when to be silent. She knows to choose her words carefully.
  • v. 27 A godly woman is responsible: she knows what is needed and she does it. She cares for those she is responsible for.
  • v. 30 A godly woman fears the Lord. She knows and follows God’s laws. She wants to serve God.
Are you a godly woman? Are you the kind of person that is described in this passage? Are you strong? Are you wise? Are you caring? Do you fear the Lord? If you are not like this now, think about how you should change your behavior. Let’s all try to become women of God.
