20 Bible Quotes About A Good Wife

Bible Quotes

All around the world and in many cultures, virtuousness remains a symbolic character of a good wife. It is believed that a good wife is her husband's crown and a man who finds one is looked upon as honourable. 

Below are Bible quotes about a good wife to inspire you.

Bible Quotes About A Good Wife

1. A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.(Prov 15v1). A gentle and gracious wife is her husband's antidote.

2. A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. (Proverbs 1:10-12).

3. For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things they do in secret. (Eph 5v12). She doesn't expose her husband's weaknesses to anyone.

4. As a ring of gold in a swine's snout so is a fair woman who is without discretion (Prov 11v22). Be nice to the people close to your husband, even if you don't like them.

5. Wives, submit to your husbands as the Lord. For a husband has authority over his wife just as Christ has authority over the church; and Christ is himself the Saviour of the church, his body. And so wives must submit completely to their husbands just as the church submits itself to Christ (Eph. 5:21-33).

6. She opens her mouth in skilful and Godly Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness. (Prov 31:10 - 31).

7. Come, darling, let's go out to the countryside and spend the night in the villages. We will get up early and look at the vines.....There I will give you my love (SS 7:10-13). Don't deny your husband love, sex.

8. My lover is handsome and strong...; he is majestic, like the Lebanon mountains...Everything about him enchants me (SS 5:9-16). Look out for the perfections/beauty in your husband and cling onto it.

9. Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honours the Lord should be praised. Give her credit for all she does.....(Prov 31:30-31). She earns admiration and respect from her husband.

10. A capable, intelligent and virtuous woman...who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. (Prov 31:10-31)

11. Let all bitterness and indignation and wrath and resentment and slander be banished from you, with all malice. (Eph 4:31). The wife is like a pillar, hatred can be the cracks that lead to the demolition of her home.

12. A virtuous and worthy wife is a crowning joy to her husband, but she who makes him ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.(Prov 12:4)

13. Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace to those who hear it. (Eph 4:29)

15. The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely so that he has no lack of gain or need of spoil. (Prov 31:11)

16. The mouth of a loose woman is a deep pit; he with whom the Lord is indignant and who is abhorrent to will fall into it. (Prov 22:14)

17. Let marriage be held in honour in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge and punish the unchaste and adulterous. (Heb 13:4).

18. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. In other words, a fruit of the womb is a blessing from the Lord, love your children and teach them well.(Prov 22:6)

19. Her children rise up and call her blessed and her husband boasts of and praises her(Prov 31:28).You are never too old to influence your home. Do not reduce your care for your family.

20. Be unceasing in prayer (1 Thess 5:17). A prayerful wife is a better-equipped, thus pray always for your husband and family.

Tennis Player Serena Williams Weds Reddit Founder, Alexis Ohanian

Serena Williams

Serena Williams
American Professional tennis player, Serena Williams has finally wedded in a grand, fairytale ceremony on Thursday, November 16, at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans.

The white wedding ceremony was inspired by the Beauty and the Beast, with the yellow motif and roses. Serena's dress drew on classic Disney styles, with a princess gown, topped off with a lace cape.

Serena Williams
It's been 11 weeks since the new couple gave birth to their first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. (two-month-old)

Quests include close family members and of course, celebrities; Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland, LaLa Anthony and Ciara were all in attendance at the wedding.

The Proposal

Serena Williams and husband, Alexis Ohanian met 18 months ago by chance at a cafe in Rome and just as expected, their love story has to be sealed up with a marriage proposal. 
Speaking in an interview with Vogue, the new bride shared the story:
'I came home one day to find my bags already packed for me, and I had absolutely no idea where I was going until I got on the flight,
Alexis flew me out to Rome, back to the exact table where we'd met. We were both really nervous but also excited to take this huge step. It was such a beautiful moment.' 
The couple wrote their own vows for the ceremony and Alexis called Serena his queen with promises of a lifetime together as a family.
''You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport,' he said. 'I'm talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together," he said.
"And my whole life I didn't even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we're doing today.

'And I am so grateful, and I am so in love.'

The museum was decorated with flowers, plus Chandeliers encased in gold birdcages, trophy-style place cards, and the 'black lamΓ©' table linens achieved this goal.

The band played 'Be Our Guest' from Beauty and the Beast as the guests were led into the dining area. But before the guests ate, Serena changed into a second dress; one made by Versace, and afterwards Mr and Mrs Ohanian danced to Tale As Old As Time.

Vitamin D And Its Potential Powers At Midlife

Vitamin D

The most natural way of getting Vitamin D is via reduced exposure to sunlight, that is why it is regarded as the sunshine vitamin.

At midlife (from 40 and above) it is important to be aware of your intake of vitamin D - both natural and supplements since research has portrayed its potential roles in the prevention of diseases attached to old age.
Vitamin D is important since it's main function is to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are vital for the growth and maintenance of healthy bones, teeth and muscles. 
Therefore here are potential powers of Vitamin D.

Vitamin D and certain Cancer 

Several studies have shown that vitamin D not only reducing the risk of 30 types of cancer - especially colon, prostate and chest cancers - but it also reduces malignant growth in cancers already present.

Vitamin D and Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition of fragile bone with an increased susceptibility to fracture and the risk is high in women over 40 years of age. Vitamin D is critical for your body to be able to use calcium and build bone properly, thus women who are over 40 or who have risk factors for osteoporosis should be sure to get adequate amounts of vitamin D.

 Vitamin D and Depression

Vitamin D
Depression is a common health problem at midlife especially in the menopause years of a woman. Therefore, it is advised that you should be on guard over seasonal mood swings, thus you might want to boost your vitamin D intake during those darker months.
Even science has revealed that when people are exposed to sunlight, their mood automatically elevates and they become more cheerful due to the brain hormone serotonin.

Vitamin D and Diabetes

Studies have shown that a low level of vitamin D results in a decrease in the release of insulin in the body, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes.

Therefore, not only does vitamin D make your body’s use of insulin more effective, it seems to prevent or minimise both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Although studies are yet to show the relationship between low vitamin D levels and diabetes.

Other potential powers of Vitamin D 

  • Prevents Cardiovascular disease
  • Reduces risk of Obesity
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, 
  • Prevents muscle weakness, 
  • Prevents multiple sclerosis, 
  • Prevents Osteoarthritis,
  • Celiac disease etc.
Studies have shown that adequate levels of vitamin D in the body inhibit inflammation

According to Dr Mercola, "you should strive to optimise your vitamin D levels via sun exposure, supplements and food, to maintain a healthy blood level of 40-60 ng/ml year round.

Food Sources of Vitamin D

  • Beef liver
  • Salmon
  • Egg yolks
  • Sardines
  • Cheese
  • Fortified milk, orange juice, cereal and yoghurt

Deficiency of Vitamin D

Extreme cases of a low level of vitamin D in children can lead to rickets - the bones become soft and weak and misshapen as they continue to grow.

In adults, vitamin D deficiency can lead to osteomalacia — causing severe bone pain and muscle aches. 

Symptoms of lack of Vitamin D

The symptoms in adults include:
  • Tiredness aches and pains, and a general sense of not feeling well;
  • Severe bone or muscle pain or weakness that may cause difficulty climbing stairs or getting up from the floor or a low chair, or cause you to walk with a waddling gait;
  • Stress fractures, especially in your legs, pelvis, and hips.

How much Vitamin D is required

The amount needed in the body depends on few factors such as:
  •  Body weight - People with higher body weight or muscle mass also require more vitamin D than people with slighter stature because vitamin D is fat soluble.
  • Age - since older adults are more inclined to stay indoors, they get less sun exposure and people over the age of 50 don't produce vitamin D as easily by metabolising sunlight, and their kidneys don't convert vitamin D into a form their body can use quite as quickly.
  • Skin colour - people with darker skin colour need 10 times more sun exposure to generate the same amount as in someone with pale skin. Thus the more pigment you have, the more sunlight you need to get adequate "D" levels.
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends 20 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) of serum concentration of 25-hydroxy vitamin D as an adequate level, or 600 IUs a day for individuals up to age 70 and 800 IUs if for people over 70.
Experts recommend Vitamin D3 supplement for those who can't get enough sunshine.

NOTE: Certain people should not take calcium (vitamin D) supplements especially those with a history of kidney stones. Such people are advised to talk to their doctor before taking any supplements.

Women are regularly mentioned because history has shown that their bones degrade faster than their male counterparts.

The reason is, when a woman reaches menopause, the loss of bone density accelerates rapidly - up to 20% in just seven years.

There should be a balanced level of vitamin D in your because too much of it can lead to high levels of calcium in the blood which can cause heart and kidney problems.

Modern Day Slavery: From Sales Girl To A Housemaid

Modern Day Slavery
A young girl shared a story of how she suddenly became a housemaid beyond the work description she applied for just to make ends meet.

Though she escaped the bondage, but not without leaving a chaotic situation behind and she wants to know if she was wrong to do what she did.

Here's Her story:
"I remember vividly how I got into that house not as a housemaid but as a salesgirl in her shop.
"Some women! I was indeed desperate for a work because I was in a strange land staying with my best friend just to hustle for myself and family. She never told me I would go from shop to her house for any reason.
"Just in two weeks, she started sending me to the market, after, I will come and cook in her house, feed her four children, her first daughter was then14 years. It became a daily routine.
"I was eventually turned into a house girl, I would sweep and mop every two two days, cook and wash dishes and clothes. I never knew I would be that submissive anyways.
"What got me angry was when she started giving me her husband's boxers to wash as if that wasn't enough, she started keeping her panties and bras for me to wash...after the chores, I will go back to the shop.
"As a Sabbatarian she is, I don't come to work on Saturdays and Sundays. When I come on Monday, you can't believe it, all the clothes and undies they all wore the past days will be waiting for me.
"I tried telling her that women don't leave their undies like that, they wash it during bath immediately.. she hissed and left. It was the children that told me that it has been their father keeping the house neat all those while, she uses her shop to get housemaids.
"She even fought with her last housemaid because the girl refused washing her undies...
"One Monday I washed everything but I kept both her undies and her husband's boxers aside for her.. she got angry and started shouting, she took the bucket of water nearby and poured on me when I tried replying her, just then, her husband came back suddenly, I was surprised as he pounds on her.
"That was the first day he ever touched her, he threw her things away...I couldn't stand the whole drama and ran out of the house. No one was able to settle them as I heard.
Did I do wrong to have refused washing those things? I'm I really the cause of the divorce?
Modern day slavery is described as when someone doesn't have a choice, has no freedom, and doesn't get paid or paid very little. For instance:

  • Bonded Labour
  • Trafficking
  • Forced child labour 
About 29.8 million people are in slavery in the world today. Stop modern day slavery!

Scientific Reason To Avoid Mediocre Friends

It is always said that if you can't beat them, you join them,' but intelligent people already know that visionaries take the success journey alone.

Simply put, to be successful, you must be immune to certain social influences, leave naysayers behind and possibly find friends who think like you.

A psychological experiment conducted on 123 young individuals (age 17 - 25) suggested that each person's estimate varied depending on what everyone else thought. This means that the opinion or belief of majority can influence an individual to think the same.

To be more elaborate, this is what happens to your brain. According to the INC author, Mithu Storoni, when you hold an opinion, an idea or a desire that matches that of people around you, your brain's reward pathway gets tickled and you feel good.

On the other hand, if you mingle in a group where your opinion, idea or desire is different from theirs, a part of your brain that sparks when you feel pain will be activated, causing you to do one of the following options:

  1. You either pretend to agree with others but secretly hold on to your own thoughts.
  2. Or your brain actively changes your beliefs and moulds your innermost thoughts to align with that of your crowd.
However, there is a higher possibility you may be using the second option more often than you think and this is how it happens.

There is a network within the human brain which monitors errors in how a person conforms with people they usually mingle with. It becomes active as soon as you and your crowd disagree on something and heralds your brain's efforts to try to reduce this disagreement gap.

This brain network is said to be active before people change their innermost belief to match that which they outwardly pretend to hold. Unfortunately, with all your super creativity and innovative streaks, if you continue to stick around pessimistic friends, you are at risk of abandoning your success vision. 

Therefore even if you're not ambitious, surrounding yourself with optimistic, energetic people who aspire to succeed will motivate you to follow their train of thoughts and become prone to success.
