“Know What to Look For”. 

So a man’s eyes and ears are open and he is alert to ‘find’ a certain type of wife per the now wise counsel of Solomon and God’s Word. 

Proverbs 3:10

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.”  

Noble – having fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals

The first step to ‘finding’ a woman like this is to first ‘look’ for a woman like this.  

Rubies – what is of more value than great wealth? 

Proverbs 31:11

“Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.”

So a man must choose:

‘Shiny Rubies or Character and Confidence’?

Also in Proverbs 12:4

“A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.”

Maybe the choice really comes down to:

‘Crown of Glory vs Disgrace and Decay’?

*Reflection. This is a wake up call for every man to stop and consider – what exactly he is specifically looking for.
