FMF: (Godly) Woman

a woman and a girl embracing

wise
holy
virtuous
meek and quiet
pure

Proverbs 14:1 Every wise woman builds her house: but the foolish plucks it down with her hands.

1 Corinthians 7:34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married cares for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

Proverbs 12:4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

1 Peter 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

    • Thank you. I spent all day long trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this week’s FMF. This was a hard one for me, for some reason. But in the end, I simply–and briefly–shared a few of the lessons the Lord has been teaching me.
