When I was asked to write a post on “worth more than diamond ” or rubies according to some translations from Proverbs 31:10, I immediately thought of how unworthy I felt. In Isaiah 64:6 it says, all my righteousness are as filthy rags and in Romans 3:10 no one is righteous not even one.
How blessed I am that a great and mighty God, Creator of all things, sent His Son to die for me. He knows who I am, what I am. My inner most thoughts are known to Him. And yet I am worthy in His sight.
In Proverbs 31:10 it says “Who can find a virtuous woman?”. When I looked up what the word virtuous means it said; moral excellence, goodness, righteousness, principled, upright. Another meaning said in the world it would be classed as a person who does good things. The one definition that spoke to my heart described a woman who filtered every decision through the Word of God. WOW.
The verse goes on to say “For her price is far above diamonds”. I know that my price is worth far more than diamonds for it was paid by God’s Son for my salvation.
May I be that virtuous woman to my husband, my children, my sister, my friends, my church family, and to everyone I meet. God please help me to be all that You created me to be. Help me to honor Your precious Son’s sacrifice. Help me to filter every decision I make through Your Word. Amen!!
