My dear fellow Progress 31 women in Progress!
If you are single or if you are to be married, you might consider several elements to start building your house. As the wise women that you are, you wish to build your marriage and your family life on godly standards (at least, that’s my wish).
I do believe that we all want to be women who deserve to be praised, like our Proverbs 31 woman!
That’s why I was very happy to find, in a book called Beautiful in God’s Eyes, a “faithfulness test” that I am going to share with you to check if you are “wife material”.
It includes 10 areas of your life that you have to take into account if you want to get married or if you want to build your marriage on solid foundations.
Do you love the Lord, your husband, your family?
Do your actions reflect that love?
Can your husband trust you to manage the money he gives you for your home?
Are you satisfied with what your husband does for you financially?
Do you care about expanding your capital for your family?
What are your financial priorities?
Do you have debts? Do you have demands which can push your husband to sink into debts?
Are you determined to raise godly children, who love the Lord, honor their father and the reputation of their family?
What are your principles about children’s upbringing?
Do you put all your efforts to manage your home well and to keep your home in order?
Do you go the extra mile to have a pleasant and agreeable house where your husband can have rest and be inspired?
Can your husband trust you to honor your vows?
What is your opinion about having a sole partner until your death?
Can your husband know that you will do him good and not evil all the days of his life?
Can you keep all his secrets and not humiliate him publicly?
Are you emotionally stable?
Do you often offer memorable arguments to your husband, with shoutings and explosions?
Are you a smiling and optimistic woman?
Do you cheer your husband up when he is sad and discouraged?
Do you support your husband with your wise advice when he has to cope with trials and difficulties?
Are you a graceful, dignified, tasteful and modest woman in your behavior and your speech?
Are you an elegant woman?
I invite you to take this test often to assess where you stand. My humble advice is to develop the areas where you are already strong and to start growing in the areas where you feel you have weaknesses.
And remember that nothing is impossible to God!
What do you think of this faithfulness test?
