How Does a Woman Act? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/02/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What traits does a godly woman have? The Bible has quite a bit to say about that.

“Ruth 3:11: ‘And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. . . . All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character.’ ”

Nancy: Do you have a reputation for being a woman of godly character?

“She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue” (Proverbs 31:26).

Nancy: Do you spend time with the Word of God so that you can speak wise words to others?

“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission” (1 Timothy 2:11).

Nancy: Do you have a teachable spirit?

“It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with a contentious and an angry woman” (Proverbs 21:19).

Nancy: Do you have a spirit of welcoming people or of pushing them away? Do you find yourself arguing and getting angry easily?

Why not spend some time in the Word of God and ask Him to show you what kind of woman He wants you to be?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
