Proverbs 31:10: “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” (KJV)
Rubies are one of the most precious and rare stones. The virtuous woman is however more precious and rare. That is why the question is raised. “Who can find her?” Check out the lion guard. See how Dhahabu stands out far above the rest. There are many zebra. There are many good ones, but she is different. She is a rare spectacle and her qualities, both inner and outer are beyond. It is evident in her behavior and how she operates.
One of the reasons that the value of the virtuous woman is beyond rubies is that by virtue of who she is, she not only possesses the capacity and ability to acquire the most rare of rubies themselves, but also the rubies plus far much more. Her value is far above rubies. That is the scope of what her virtues are capable of. That is how excellent she is. Many are good. But not many are capable of that and that is why she is more rare than the rare rubies.
Proverbs 31:29 “Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.” (KJV)
That is how the virtuous woman is identified and these are qualities that should inspire you to emulate. Be the rare spectacle. Excel in virtue and obtain a value far beyond rubies.
