In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.

Proverbs 10:19


Two Virtues Every Woman Should Covet
Many women set aside a lot of time and spend a lot of money toward their outward appearance; but when it comes to the inward appearance, it seems as though little to no time is spent thereon.  The media advertises so much on how to improve the outer man; but when it comes to the improvement of the “inner man of the heart” there is very little being said and done.
I Peter 3:3-4, “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;  Verse 4. But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
A Meek and Quiet Spirit
According to Merriam Webster’s online dictionary,
Meek means:
1.       To endure injury with patience and without resentment. 

2.       Deficient in spirit and courage: SUBMISSIVE

3.       Not violent or strong: MODERATE

Quiet means:
Restrained in speech, manner, etc.; saying little.
If you want to improve your inner man pray for a meek and a quiet spirit.  According to the Bible, if you are married, these will enhance your marriage; if you are single, these will prepare you for marriage; and if you do not ever intend on getting married, these will be great treasures to own.  The holy women of the Bible adorned themselves with these invaluable qualities. 
What Does Meekness Do for You?
Meekness prevents you from being unforgiving, prideful, and angry.  A meek spirit prohibits hatred, promotes love, and is not intimidating.  A docile person does not criticize, condemn, nor judge.  A person with this quality is kind, other-centered, longsuffering, and gentle. 
 In essence, meekness will solve a lot of problems in relationships, and by and large, would improve not only marriages, but friendships, church communities, other communities, and nations when you walk in it. 
What Does Quietness Do for You?
Quietness prevents you from being a show-off, alleviates the sins of the tongue: gossip, backbiting, slandering, arguments, criticism, and the likes.  A quiet person is not pushy or pretentious, does not get angry easily, is not impatient, and does not yield to extreme emotions.  Quietness restrains you from disturbing your neighbors, helps you to co-exist peacefully with others, allows you to keep a clear thinking head, and is not competitive.  This character trait does not mean that a person does not speak when it is necessary. 
 Many people tend to look down at this beauty; but God looks up at it.  The Bible is against women being loud and clamorous; but it praises women who are decorated with a quiet spirit.  Quietness is more than speaking little; it is a mindset and way of behaving.  Meekness and quietness are not weaknesses; but strengths and virtues that every woman should covet.   


Pride is deceiving:  It takes you high up to the top;
then lets you go and watches you drop,
until you pop.

Do not think for God

 II Kings 5:11, “But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.”

As children of God we must learn to give up our way of thinking, for God’s way of doing things.  We must be ready to surrender everything to God’s will.  I have seen many people, because of their pride, beliefs, and unwillingness to yield to the desires of God, suffer great consequences.  This will not be your case in Jesus’ Name!

Naaman needed healing from God because of leprosy; but became angry when the prophet, Elisha, instructed him to do something contrary to what he was thinking.  However, after much persuasion by his servants, Naaman obeyed the prophet and received his healing. Sometimes it is the least expected things that produce the greatest miracles.  Sometimes it is the lowliest people through whom come the greatest miracles.  Sometimes it is the least obvious circumstances that engender the greatest miracles.

Remember, Jesus was born in a manger, Elijah was fed by a raven, Samson’s strength was in his hair, and Naaman received his healing from the dirty Jordan river. Stop thinking for God, just have a willing heart to obey His instructions.  Stop looking for God in a fanfare because He may not show up there. 

             I Corinthians 1:27, “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.”



Things to Consider

A Woman of Praise controls her eyes. 

Better to be pure; than to lust.

Better to give praise; than to criticize.

Better to seek the praise of God; than the praise of men.

Better to say nothing; than to say something negative.

Better to pray; than to gossip.

A Woman of Praise controls her tongue. 

Words may not be able to break the bones; but they can surely break the heart.

A pure heart makes a beautiful smile; but a sinful one an ugly face.

The faults that you see in others are probably the ones you cannot see in yourself.

Your enemies are also entitled to the mercies of God.

People often bring out the worst in you; but Jesus always brings out the best in you.

A Woman of Praise controls her thoughts.

You will never find perfection in anyone; but Christ.

In the midst of the darkness light arises for those who love the Lord.

Don't let anyone use your past to measure your future.

True joy can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Your weakness is an opportunity for Him to show himself strong in you.

Evangelist K. Michael
