My professor has a high standard of punctuality and a great philosophy on learning. Today we’re going through the book of Proverbs.
There was a laugh in the class when Dr. Farmer talked about Mother’s Day in church when the preacher uses the Proverbs 31 text and makes all the mothers feel guilty and then says “Happy Mother’s Day!”
Dr. Farmer says he thinks the text is being misused. He encourages us as young men with the fact that the Proverbs 31 wife isn’t something we can expect to find here at school because the girls here are not matured like the one in the passage. Instead, how our wife turns out is heavily dependent on what we are as husbands. It is our responsibility to be the leader and help them grow into the Proverbs 31 wife.
So how are we to look for a wife without these signs? Dr. Farmer says that we need to be looking for a woman who fears the Lord above all else because the fear of the Lord is beginning of not only wisdom but everything.
I think that’s a great point for us as singles to remember as we look for that special someone. Its also a challenge for you married men, that you be the leader for your wife because how you lead determines who she’ll be.
