Quoting Quiverfull: Does This Sound Like a Proverbs 31 Woman?

Quoting Quiverfull: Does This Sound Like a Proverbs 31 Woman? December 27, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife – She Does Him Good and Not Evil: 31:12

Editor’s note: Lori’s extrapolating out her own thoughts again and trying to make them ‘Biblical’. While some of these are what a good wife will do regardless of what religion, if any, they practice she’s really stretching hard on many of them. Example: Lori claims you stay home and keep the house immaculate unlike the words in Proverbs 31 indicating that the lady of the house had servants to do those things while she was about her business. What do you think is the most toxic bit here?

She builds up his home, instead of tearing it down.

She speaks respectfully to him, instead of being disrespectful towards him through her actions and words.

She is joyful, instead of complaining.

She takes good care of her children, instead of scrolling through Facebook, playing on her iPhone, and watching TV, thus neglecting her children.

She speaks highly of him to others, instead of tearing him down.

She is a student of God’s Word, instead of her Bible gathering dust.

She submits to her husband’s leadership, instead of lording it over him.

She speaks words of kindness to him, instead of being cruel towards him.

She is cheerful and laughs with him, instead of at him.

She does not deprive him sexually, instead of doing it when she feels like it.

She is modest in her clothing, instead of being sensual and turning on other women’s husbands.

She has a gentle and quiet spirit, instead of being harsh and loud.

She loves to stay home and keep it clean and tidy, instead of running here and there and neglecting her home duties.

She dwells on the lovely and the good, instead of having no discretion with what she thinks about and watches.

She loves and sacrifices for him, instead of being selfish and only caring for herself.

I can tell you from personal experience, you will be much happier when you are doing your husband good instead of evil.
