This is one of my favorite scriptures by far. Recently I was reading through it and it dawned on me that although it is titled The Capable Wife, it applies to my single ladies out there too. I wish I had this one in my toolbox when I was still single. In my mind, these aren’t guidelines to be a good wife, but rather just flat out a good woman – single, married, or in a situation that falls under the Facebook label of “it’s complicated”.
It’s safe to say that forever is a long time if we are blessed enough to live long lives. Well consider spending the rest of your life cuddled up with those flaws. You know the little or even big things that kind of bother or irritate you, but you tolerate them because you “love” him or her. Pay very close attention, because the very things that bother you now will not just miraculously disappear when you get married.
You know how when you were a teenager and first licensed you would get in the car and just drive without even having a destination? (I know me and my friends were NOT the only ones who did that!) But as you got older and you really started to value a dollar and had to pay for gas, you cut out that foolishness. When you got in the car, you not only thought about where you were going but the best route to get there.
Let me ask you a question…

I never realized how the seemingly small childhood experiences were preparation for the undeniably large adulthood experiences.
