Proverbs 31:10-12: “Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.”
In addition to our reputation being better than money, who we choose for our life partner is also better than money. Listen, when you are looking for a husband or wife, look for someone virtuous, trustworthy, and selfless. Instead of chasing looks or money, go beneath the skin to their character. As you grow older, good character will bless you so much more than good looks. Looks fade. Character stays. I am fortunate that I married a Proverbs 31 woman. My wife is one of the hardest-working people I know. She also has a rare gift of always finding the best in horrible situations. She’s an encourager. She’s a blessing. She cares deeply about our girls and me. She sacrifices her desires to meet the needs of those around her. Yes, she is a sinner just like you and me, but she knows who she belongs to (Jesus) and knows how to receive and give grace. Can you tell I’m absolutely in love with her? If you are single, close your eyes and describe the perfect partner. Are you talking about physical features or heart features? If you’re married, how can you BE the person of virtue and love/respect your spouse regardless of their behavior toward you? I know this is a financial blog, but money is 80% behavior. A person’s character and virtue will impact your financial situation a lot more than their looks. Look for integrity, service, and excellence. You won’t regret it.
