A Good Woman Will

A good woman will encourage her man: Men have bad days too.  They go through periods of feeling lost, confused, and unsure of what to do next. Even when all seems to be going great it is important to speak life into your man. Encourage him by blessing his day with positive words. Let him know that you are proud of what he’s doing in life, and always push him towards greater. We live in a world where more people want to see us fail than succeed, so be a safe haven for him. Be someone he can count on to say just the right thing. There never has to be a special occasion for encouragement, “just because” encouragement is priceless.

    I do love this list, but it’s missing a few things, like “A good woman will not sleep around” or “A good woman will know when to say no” or even “A good woman will know when to leave” I think the most attractive part of a woman is her personality and character, even if she encourages, supports, prays, or listens to her man, that’s only what she is giving, not necessarily who she is as a person. They are for sure the “fruit” of a good woman, but it begs the question “If that’s the fruit, what’s the rest of the tree like? What makes it grow” and “How can I support it as she is giving?” I love this train of thought.

      Hi and thank you for your feedback. You’re rights those are also characteristics of a good woman. Technically, an entire book could be written on the traits of a good woman. My aim here was just to name a few. A mere glimpse into my idea of what a good woman will do. So since this is just a glimpse you’ll be right on track to imagine that the rest of the tree is just as fruitful. I think these things do indeed say a lot of who she is as a person, but realistically speaking it will take personally getting to know a woman in order for a man to genuinely label her as “good”.

        Oh what a good word Curtrice,
        It really could be a great book one day, and I love what you said about it being a few “mere glimpses” because it flirts with the idea of there being more… And for gentlemen, that adventure in itself is attractive and worth pursuing. Thank you!

    YES! I have personally seen how praying turns everything around. When the flesh wants to fight, argue, or cause isolation, God guides us to love and give. His guidance is vital to any relationship.
