Start this adventure from the beginning:
Are You a Loving Woman?
Glad you're here to share another verse from this great Proverb that
we're studying together.
Metaphors are such cool little things, but sometimes they can confuse
people. When you read this verse, you may think that it means that a
woman should get out and about to get things for the family. Ah, my
friend, but you must look at things spiritually. Do you suppose maybe
king Lemuel's mother meant that a virtuous woman would go to great
lengths to provide what her family needs? That doesn't mean going to
the most expensive stores or to shop in different cities, states or
That doesn't mean that the things you obtain for your loved ones have
to be novelty items, imports, one of a kinds, brand names, designer
labels or anything of that sort. It means that you put your heart and
soul, your Love and devotion, your blood, sweat and tears so to
speak, into all that you do for and give to your loved ones, no
matter what the cost. Do I mean cost as in money? No, I mean cost as
A loving woman makes a loving wife and is much like a merchant ship
because her dedication is so very valuable and that's a novelty that
doesn't wear off. The Love that you include in everything you do and
make, truly makes you unique. Love is an ingredient that far too many
people have ceased to include in all they do, and it's very sad,
because Jesus said that's how people will identify us as Christians
... By our Love.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye Love one
another; as I have Loved you, that ye also Love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if
ye have Love one to another.
A Loving Woman is a Blessing
Your time, and your Love are a sacrifice ... A gift to God.
When you spend time, serving His children with Love, you're doing a
wonderful thing for yourself as well.
1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for
charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
How to be a Loving Wife Bible Study Point of Interest ... The time
that you spend doing things for people with Love is so precious in
God's eyes. You even get special grace for it, like Peter said above.
What a bargain! Love will hook you up with a deal like that. We so
often forget, and think we're doing things for people, instead of
doing things for Jesus, but don't forget:
... Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of
the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
In God's Image, Be Creative!
We touched on this a little in the last How to be a Loving Wife Bible
Study step. Let's talk about it a little more. Roll up your sleeves,
get creative and learn how to improvise. Reach inside and bring out
the creative side of you. You are God's child, so believe that you
can, because you were created in His image, and He created
everything, so it's in there, you just have to bring it out. You're
one of a kind. Your creativity comes from the Lord. You inherited it!
A Loving Woman is Natural
Look at the last half of the verse:
When your words and deeds come from a Loving Woman within, your fruit
(virtues) could not be imported from a better source. You really
never know what you can do unless you try. You will surprise
yourself, or rather, what I should say is, God will surprise you. A
china doll bought at the store, pales in comparison to a teddy bear
that you can make out of needle and thread, some old buttons, an old
sweatshirt, some cotton balls and your special ingredient ... Love. A
china doll will probably sit up on a shelf and gather dust because it
may get broken if handled too roughly, but a teddy bear can be so
treasured that the fleece gets loved off of it, right down to the
bare bear threads!
For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
Love Isn't Love 'till You Give it Away
Remember that one of our challenges in this How to Be a Loving Wife
Bible Study program is to look at things from different points of
view. Let's meet the challenge with the topic of Love. Many people
have been hurt in their lives so deeply that they're afraid to Love
again, because they don't want to experience the kind of pain that
the loss of Love causes, ever again. I have to ask you, if God is
Love, and you feel Love for someone, but don't share it, aren't you
keeping God from them? How many times have you selfishly kept God to
yourself by holding back Love?
A Loving Woman in Today's World?
1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is
Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because
fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love.
Look for that verse again later in our How to Be a Loving Wife Bible
Study program, too.
A Loving Wife Bible Trivia ... Have you ever thought about how much
Love you put into the things you do for your loved ones? When you
cook a meal, when you keep house, when you mend a button on a shirt,
do you do these kinds of things with Love or is it mostly obligation
and begrudgingly? Are you angry that you have to spend your time on
someone else? Do you feel like they should do it themselves? Do you
ever feel like they "owe" you for the things you've done for them? Is
it so easy to forget that no matter what you do, or who you do it
for, you're really doing it for Jesus? Remember this scripture that
we just read a few moments ago?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
A Loving Woman Endures
How to be a Loving Wife Bible Study Promise ... I promise you this my
friend, when you find it the most difficult to do something with Love
for someone, is when it counts the most. Sometimes it makes us just
want to kick the dirt and stomp our feet and shake our fists because
the Lord wants us to do things, especially Love people that we may
rather not want to. Check out Matthew
22:28-31. And it's not even a natural thing to be unloving, if
you think about it, it goes against our nature, because we are made
in the image of God, therefore, we are naturally Godly and loving,
however, because of Original Sin, we are tempted by the devil at
every opportunity to act ungodly and unloving. I'm going to show you
what Jesus said, according to both Matthew and Luke, because both are
so riveting, and I don't want you to miss the importance of this
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that
curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in
heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good,
and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye Love them which Love you, what reward have
ye? do not even the publicans the same?
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also
to them likewise.
32 For if ye Love them which Love you, what thank have ye?
for sinners also Love those that Love them.
33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what
thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what
thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much
35 But Love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping
for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be
the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and
to the evil.
God Wants You To Be a Loving Woman
Our Father wants us to go the extra mile. My dear friend, here comes
one of those times when you're gonna want to clench your teeth and
purse your lips and puff and sneer at me (kinda reminds me of what I
suppose Leviathan to look like), but if you think that the Lord led
you here because He wants you to improve just a little bitty bit, I'm
afraid we may not be on the same page, so to speak. I'm certain that
any amount of improvement is appreciated, but think about it,
potential bride of Christ, giving only minimal effort ... Heck,
anyone can improve just a little. You're not auditioning for a bit
part in an off Broadway play here, you're asking to be worthy of
being with Jesus for eternity. Is a little improvement enough? Take a
look at this next How to be a loving wife Bible study Scripture and
then we will discuss it as to understand it better:
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse
your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be
turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He
shall lift you up.
Do whatever it takes. Humble yourself to God and He will be there
with open arms to help you before you know it. Stop experimenting
with sin, to see how much you may get away with. Cleanse your inner
soul. Stop playing games. Face the fact that you have allowed and
maybe even enjoyed the lifestyle that includes sin, and you will
probably experience disgust and sadness and anger, and all kinds of
emotional whirlwinds that the devil would Love for you to hold on to
and continue in, but pull a fast one on him and turn it into
repentance. And then, my friend, you will feel an overwhelming
relief. You will feel the freedom of Grace. It's time to get down to
business ... God business. Make a choice. When you're face down in
the dirt, before you get on your feet you have to get on your knees.
And then, precious friend, He shall lift you up!
A Loving Woman is Precious
Remind yourself also that even though this is a 28 step How to be a
Loving Wife Bible Study program ... It very well may take more than
28 days to be able to claim that you're a rock solid virtuous woman.
How long have you been following the world? Chances are, much longer
than 28 days. Now, that doesn't mean that if you've followed the
world for 28 years, it's going to take 28 years to get back to your
child of God little girl that you're seeking for. You must have
patience, but be persistent. As you know, you only get out of
something what you put into it.
Being that we're on the topic of Love, I'm compelled to share
Jesus' words about what will happen towards the end of time:
And because iniquity shall abound, the Love of many shall wax
The Apostle Paul explains this in detail:
2 Timothy 3:1-7
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false
accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more
than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power
thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and
lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge
of the Truth.
A Loving Woman Warning
Is it just me, or does that sound frightfully familiar to the way
things are right now?! Here ... Let me re-word that so you'll get the
picture crystal clear.
Be certain of this, that in the last days it will be a dangerous time
(for your soul). People will love their own selves, they will be
greedy, braggers, prideful, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, unnatural, promise breakers, liars, without
self-control, violent, hateful of those that are good, betrayers,
reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God,
claiming to have a religion, but denying the power of God. Stay away
from these. They are the kind of people that sneak into houses and
make prisoners of silly women, who are easily persuaded by sin,
always learning, but never seeing Truth.
How to be a Loving Wife Bible Study Time Out ... Now, imagine that
this isn't only talking about people you may have heard of, it's at
every corner of every city of every country in the world. Let me ask
you, isn't this a perfect description of what you watch on
television? You don't have to go out into the world for your soul to
be taken hostage. The world can creep right into your own home, and
teach you endlessly, burdening you with sins, and blinding you from
the Truth. Television, magazines, social media, junk mail, radio,
telephone calls, texts, you name it, and the enemy will use it as a
mode of entrance into an unsuspecting soul. Notice that Paul
specifically warned that women are susceptible to this, so I just
want to warn you ... Be on guard ... Be alert ... Protect your virtue
and don't let any of these things affect your ability or your desire
to Love, because if it does, it directly affects your relationship
Dear friend, Love is the key. If you have Love in your heart, you've
got it made, because Jesus taught us that it is the greatest
commandment. And if your Love for the Lord is strong, being virtuous
becomes a much simpler task.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt
Love thy neighbour as thyself.
A Loving Woman is Genuine
Whenever you have a decision to make (remember, most choices in life
are a test of your virtue), and if you can't decide what is right,
always imagine how you're going to feel after the decision is made
and what consequences of your decision will come about. Don't be
afraid to analyze things ahead of time, it's the smart thing to do.
That will make it easier to decide many times. Don't be hasty. Be
predictable. Consider all of the "what ifs." The world may think it's
cool to be spontaneous and impulsive, but believe this Truth, it's
better to be level headed and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. He is
your friend and counselor. He Loves you.
How to be a Loving Wife Bible Study Question Point to Ponder ... How
many times have you laid down to sleep, praying for the Lord to keep
your soul through the night, and wished you had made a different
choice about something earlier in the day. Slow down in your life. Be
patient and intelligent in making choices. Eternity is a good
perspective to use when making decisions. Is your choice something
that will even matter 10 years from now, or how about in the even
longer run, will it effect your eternal life?
A Loving Wife Summary
Remember again, what this verse says, 'she bringeth her food from
afar.' When you work hard to maintain a virtuous lifestyle, and
you've traveled a long way, don't let the enemy steal away the virtue
that the Lord treasures in you. He's depending on you to distribute
that treasure (your virtues) that He imports to you, to others too.
Another How to be a Loving Wife Bible Study Point of View
Perhaps the "food" in this verse, is wisdom. Maybe this means that a
virtuous woman will seek the mind of the Lord through prayer, through
the Bible, through other Christians, etc., until she is satisfied
that she knows Truth. A virtuous woman will seek the Truth, no matter
how difficult it may seem.
The Truth is Love never fails!
1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is
Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
And as always, reflect on God's Grace,
every day of your life.
