7 Signs Of A Virtuous Woman Who’s Proverbs 31 Standard

Are you wondering what signs will show if you are a virtuous woman? If you are a Christian woman, then this post on the 7 signs of a virtuous woman will answer all those questions you have.

If you are a virtuous Proverbs 31 woman, there are many signs and characteristics that you will show in your Christian life and marriage life.

The bible tells us that a virtuous woman is priceless in God’s signs and I pray that this post you are about to read will help you be that Proverbs 31 woman who’s priceless in God’s sight.

Without wasting much of your precious time, let’s look at 7 signs of a virtuous woman that will help you know beyond any reasonable doubt that you are a virtuous woman.

7 Signs Of A Proverbs 31 Woman.

Below are the 7 signs that will show if you are a Proverbs 31 woman or a virtuous wife of noble character who fears the Lord.

  • Fears The Lord.
  • Gentle And Quiet Spirit.
  • Respects Her Husband.
  • Submits To Her Husband.
  • Loves Her Husband & Family.
  • Wise & Hardworking.
  • Modest & Dignified.

1. Fears The Lord.

One of the first obvious signs that will clearly show you are a virtuous wife and woman is you will fear the Lord and keep His commandments.

A godly woman who fears the Lord will always desire to please the Lord by her way of living and isn’t obsessed with outward vain beauty that fades with time.

Proverbs 31:30 in the Old Testament tells us that beauty is vain but a virtuous woman who fears the Lord shall be praised and highly honored by Him. This must be your ultimate aim as an aspiring Proverbs 31 woman.

As a godly woman and Christian wife, you must understand that your real beauty is inside and not outward beauty that the world is obsessed with.

Let your inner godly Christ-like character be what defines your inner beauty so that you can be a blessing to your husband and children, the people who need your love and attention most.

2. Gentle And Quiet Spirit.

Another signal that will show you are a virtuous wife in your Christian living and marriage life is you will have a gentle and quiet spirit as 1 Peter 3:4 talks about in the New Testament.

The above verse is an encouragement and an admonishment to all Christian women out there that they are to have a gentle and quiet spirit which is precious and priceless in God’s sight.

Implying that as a virtuous woman unlike worldly rebellious women who are filled with a Jezebel spirit, you won’t be loud, rebellious, argumentative, or have a combative spirit that will make you quarrelsome.

If you have a gentle and quiet spirit, you won’t be quarrelsome with your husband which is sadly the case with many so-called rebellious Christian wives who always want to pick a fight with their husbands on anything.

But this won’t be the case with you if you are a virtuous wife as you will understand that no sensible husband wants to be with a loud, rebellious, and quarrelsome woman who’s a constant source of stress to him.

3. Respects Her Husband.

Being longing and respectful to your husband in attitude and how you talk to him is another sign that will show you are truly a virtuous woman.

As a Christian woman and wife, you need to understand that you are commanded to respect and revere your husband as commanded in Ephesians 5:33. I know this is almost a taboo topic to talk about in the times we live in due to feminism.

Sadly, many so-called Christian women have been contaminated and indoctrinated by the lies of feminism that make them think if they respect their husbands, they are enslaved. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Nevertheless, if you are truly a Christian woman, I encourage you not to heed the lies of feminism if you truly love your husband and understand what it truly means to be a true Christian wife who loves the Lord.

Just think about it this way, if you can’t respect and honor your husband, a person who lives and shares the same bed with you under the same roof, who are you going to truly respect and honor in this life? Meditate on that question, please.

4. Submits To Her Husband.

Godly submission to your husband as unto the Lord as commanded in Ephesians 5:22,23 in the New Testament is another sign that will show you are truly a virtuous woman who fears the Lord.

You need to understand godly submission to your husband in marriage is a godly virtue that you can only have if you are truly saved and have a new nature of Christ in you.

The topic of submission is a topic that sadly many churches don’t want to talk about. This can be attributed to the influence of feminism in the church and weak men who are too afraid of confronting this issue.

Due to a Jezebel spirit reigning in a lot of so-called rebellious Christian women who don’t want to submit to their husbands, submission is a word that these women have come to hate and think is misogynistic.

However, if you are truly a Christian wife after God’s own heart, godly submission is something you won’t find repulsive or degrading. This will be due to the new Christ-like gentle spirit in you that will gladly embrace godly submission with joy.

5. Loves Her Husband & Family.

If you are a virtuous woman and a godly wife, you will also love your husband through the kindness and respect you show to him in your Christian marriage.

Yes, women are also commanded to love their husbands as we are told in Titus 2:4,5. If you love your husband by how you treat, serve, and respect him, it shows you are an excellent wife.

Additionally, you will also love your family by being dedicated to your family’s wellbeing. This implies that you will go above and beyond in ensuring your husband and family, the people God has entrusted you to care for will be well looked after.

Some women sadly think taking care of their husbands and families is slavery which isn’t true. Taking care of your family or your husband is the highest form of love you can ever show as a Christian woman to your fellow humans.

Don’t listen to sad and disgruntled feminists who don’t understand what true love is all about tell you that sacrificially loving and caring for your husband and family is slavery or make you think you are less than them.

6. Wise & Hardworking.

Being wise and hard working in life is also another trait you will have as a virtuous woman who’s after God’s heart. You will not only be hard working at home but also in your personal and business life.

You need to understand that being virtuous in life isn’t just about being hard-working at home. Instead, you will also be hardworking in your professional life in addition to your home responsibilities and you won’t be lazy.

Take for example Dorcas mentioned in Acts 9:36-43 in the New Testament who was also a hard-working virtuous woman and full of good works as she made clothes for widows and poor people during her time.

Just like Dorcas who was hardworking and full of godly wisdom, you as well as a virtuous woman must be wise, hardworking, and full of good works willing to lend a helping hand to the needy especially those of the same household of faith.

If you have wisdom, you will also build your home with your words and you won’t be a foolish woman who ruins her home with her careless and loose use of her tongue.

7. Modest & Dignified.

Last but not least, another indicator that will show you are a Proverbs 31 Woman with a high moral standard is you will be modest and dignified, especially, in how you dress.

As a modest Christian woman, the way you dress and carry yourself will be different from the way worldly women dress and carry themselves.

Implying that if worldly women dress immodestly by revealing their sensitive body parts, you won’t do that. Instead, you will dress in a feminine and godly manner that will lead and point others to the Lord Jesus Christ and not draw carnal attention to yourself.

1 Timothy 2:9 tells us that women are to be modest in the way they dress with shamefacedness, and not adorn themselves with expensive clothing that reveals vanity.

As a dignified Christian woman, you can’t afford to follow worldly fashions and beauty standards that have deceived gullible women who think exposing themselves publicly is sexy. No, your real beauty as a woman comes from inside, not by exposing your items publicly.
