#Proverbs – Chapter 12: Noble Character!

Scripture:
Proverbs 12:4
A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

Proverbs 12:9
Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.

Observation:
Don’t cause your husband grief! Have godly character and act according to God’s desire and plan for husband/wife relationships.

Live within your means and be good stewards of the blessings that God bestows upon you.

Application:
Do I have upstanding character and performing my wifely duties that God instructed me? I should live according to God’s plan and will for me. My actions need to uplift and support my husband and should not cause him grief.

God has given us many blessings, one being our finances. We need to be good stewards of what we have been given and return our required tithe to him. We should live within our means and not live extravagantly but help those in need.

Prayer:
Lord, help me be a godly wife and have noble character. Help me to uplift my spouse and not bring him down with sorrow or grief. Lord, help me to see those around me that are in need and be a good steward of your blessings.
