10 Who[a] can find a virtuous[b] wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
Many are aware of Proverbs 31 in reference to being a Proverbs 31. My heart melts when I read verse 11. It says “The heart of her husband safely trusts her;”. A couple months back I remember reading that and I just sat there like WOW. I cannot put into words what a treasure that is for a mans heart to trust a woman. The thought of living that one day makes my heart skip a beat. What an honor, what a treasure. For not only a man to allow the preciousness of His heart to be open to another, but that His heart TRUSTS.
Where I want to go with this is talking to women.
Are you living a lifestyle that would help, show your husband or boyfriend that His heart can trust you? You may be single as I am. How are you with your friends hearts? Can your friends trust you with there hearts? Do you understand the treasure, the pearl, the jewel that a heart is? With songs on the radio in mainstream media flaunting that they are going to break the persons heart I would love to see a revolution of young men and women to treasure there hearts, and understand the value of what God has created.
A couple interesting things about the heart:
The term “heartfelt” originated from Aristotle’s philosophy that the heart collected sensory input from the peripheral organs through the blood vessels. It was from those perceptions that thought and emotions arose.f
God didn’t have to create a heart. But He did.
And we are to be good stewards of those hearts around us. To fight for them, protect them, love them as though it were our own.
So my question to you, if you are not dating- if a man were to come in your life. Could he trust His heart to you?
And to those with a man in their lives- Can He trust His heart with you?
