The Proverbs 31 Woman – Chapter 38 – Real and Respectable

Real men are offended when women compete with them, especially their wives. They don’t like being shown up by a woman who thinks she is better than a man. Real men don’t like being bossed, told what to do, when and how to do it. This does not make a man less a man because this offends him or simply makes him angry; rather it reveals that he’s a ‘real’ man because of how it goes against God’s design of a man.


Real women are offended when men, especially their husbands, expect them to behave in ways that are improper and shameful, or to expect their wives to walk behind them and be quiet. A real woman knows her worth from her Father God. She knows how to conduct and present herself so that she does not feel ashamed before her heavenly Father. She raises her daughters respectfully as well – ignoring the opinions of worldly women.


“The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked bring shame and disgrace. Righteousness guards the man (and woman) of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.” Proverbs 13:5-6


A woman cannot teach a man how to be a man and neither does it work the other way around. Should either attempt to teach the other in this way – they will see where it takes them that neither of them will appreciate.  When a husband and a wife don’t respect each other’s God-given design and boundaries – their marriage will be a disaster and their children will suffer as well. In turn, this affects society (as we’ve seen in America) and the whole world. It’s wise to get the right understanding from God’s blueprint of the male and female genders with their roles on the earth; saves you a lot of battles, heartaches and shame.


“Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring.” Malachi 2:15


Children today are being trained to think evil is good and good is evil; they are being forced through public education to think and behave in ways that go against the way God established the male and female roles in life. What we need are godly parents raising godly children.


Today, women know how to play sports, but they don’t know how to cook and clean a house. In fact, they feel it below them to do so. Women know how to raise their voices, but they don’t know how to raise children. Women hold management positions in the world, but they fail to manage their own households. Women know how to use their charms to get a man, but they don’t know how to be their husband’s helpmate.


What a shameful thing it is that women get together and share tactics in how they stand up to their husbands, and how they get their husbands to serve them. Women today praise each other for getting in the face of their husbands to tell them off. They boast of their beguiling ways as if it makes them more a woman. So very evil!


Woman came from the rib of man to be his helper; to be the wife at his side and on his side; the mother of his children; the one he can trust with his weakness and fears; the one who looks to her Creator Father for her husband’s good, and who entrusts herself to her Father God for all His good in her life.


An honorable wife can cause her husband to be respected in the gates of their society. The woman who faithfully prays and depends on the Lord with her thoughts, desires, fears and concerns for her family – is a wife no man should live without; it’ll be hard for a man to fail with a wife like this.
