I had the privilege of ministering to some young ladies at an event earlier this year on the subject of Love coming from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and what it REALLY is, and looks like when applied in each season, whether they were single, courting/engaged, or married. It was an awesome time! Despite my lack of qualification or expertise, The Lord really moved upon those ladies hearts and many were able to take away what they needed from the things God had me to share, so I thought it would be nice to finally post some of the message and prayerfully you will find things to take away from it as well.

I was going to title this "The Worthy WIFE" but even an unmarried woman who possesses these qualities is just as worthy. When you read this chapter you see a model for the qualities Godly women should possess. She may not have them all, but she can definitely take something from most of them because she learns the necessary skills inside AND outside the home, becoming a woman with PURPOSE. By providing for her family and making a living through the examples given, she's teaching other women to live a life pleasing unto the Lord. She gives sons an example of wisdom as they are pursuing wives, who have been prepared to compliment them as they walk in their purpose. She works hard to be a wonderful businesswoman, wife, mother, daughter, friend, niece, or sister. She's not lazy or idle, but someone making a difference in whatever way she can contribute. With the help of Dakes and a few other study references, I want to share 31 Qualities of a worthy woman, so I encourage you to grab your bible (or click the link I gave above) so that we can break this down line upon line:
