Thoughts on Christian Womanhood

The world has enough women who are tough;
we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are coarse;
we need women who are kind…
We have enough women of fame and fortune;
we need more women of faith.
We have enough greed; we need more goodness.
We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
We have enough popularity; we need more purity.”

-Margaret D. Nadauld

A Christian woman does not put her hope in her husband, or in getting a husband. She does not put her hope in her looks. She puts her hope in the promises of God. She is described in Proverbs 31:25: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” She laughs at everything the future will bring and might bring, because she hopes in God.

She looks away from the troubles and miseries and obstacles of life that seem to make the future bleak, and she focuses her attention on the sovereign power and love of God who rules in heaven and does on earth whatever He pleass. She knows her Bible, and she knows her theology of the sovereignty of God, and she knows His promise that he will be with her, help her, and strength her no matter what. This is the deep, unshakable root of Christian womanhood.

-John Piper
