Traits of a Godly Woman
Any godly woman will be the first to say they are not perfect but they desire to have traits of a Godly Woman. Each day as women, we are presented with an opportunity to grow stronger and learn to do the right things when they are in certain situations.
We each have areas in our lives where we need work and a godly woman does all she can to grow and let go of worldly things, and discover and fine tune, traits of a Godly Woman.
To say you can measure how godly a woman is, that is impossible. Being a godly woman, you are making a commitment to Jesus Christ, that you will grow spiritually with each passing day and try to live a life of how He would want you to live.
Here are some traits of a godly woman. Maybe you know someone who carries these traits in their daily lives. Maybe you can see these traits in your own lives.
Cares for Her Home
This includes housekeeping,
Strong Relationship With God’s Word
This can be a hard one, ladies. We are constantly on the go to the next activity, packing lunches, ensuring our kids brush their teeth, preparing breakfast, running errands, homeschooling, helping with homework, preparing dinner, keeping our home in order, leaving for work, working from home, and the list goes on.
Instead of rising up and giving God our first fruits, we end up skipping our time in the Word or just giving Him a sliver of what is left over. One of the Traits of A Godly woman, is that she takes the time to grow stronger and read the Word of God, knowing that this is a foundation for your home, family, and your faith. (Proverbs 31:26)
Kind to Others
Friends, we can build bridges or burn them. We can share the love of Christ in hopes of winning souls, or we can push them away before they ever hear the gospel. Judge righteously, but be kind. A Godly woman is kind to others no matter the color of their skin, gender, or status. You are kind to others. You’re willing to lend a helping hand when possible, not convenient, but when possible. You listen and try to be a good friend and you give kind advice when asked for or when needed. (Proverbs 31:15)
Do you struggle with this one? It is so easy to get caught up in harboring ill feelings and grudges. A Godly woman doesn’t hold onto grudges when someone hurts you or makes you feel bad. You learn to forgive quickly. (Colossians 3:13)
Do you start many projects, but finish none? Do you get so overwhelmed that you don’t know where to even begin? Godly women work hard to finish any task at hand. Sometimes this means working late into the night or getting up early to get it all done. You do it to your full ability, to be pleasing to the Lord and be a blessing to others you are helping, while exemplifying traits of a godly woman. (Ecclesiastes 9:10)
Gentle and Quiet
It is so easy to get sucked into the gossip pit. Sadly, many Christians struggle with this in the name of the Lord. It starts with praying for someone but sharing too many details. Details that aren’t ours to share. Being gentle and quiet doesn’t mean you’re a doormat. However, it does include being respectful, not gossiping, and not speaking up when you shouldn’t. Learn how to listen and be kind and gentle to others. (Proverbs 7:11)
This one hits a nerve even typing it! Are you quick to apologize and admit your fault? I have been there and made being right a hill to die on! It is sometimes hard to admit when we are wrong, but being a godly woman means you admit your wrongs and repent. This takes courage and strength! (Psalm 38:18)
In today’s world, so many people dress in very little clothing on their bodies. Sadly, this is done as a political statement now, too. While porn and sin abound regardless of how a woman dresses, as Godly women we know our bodies can entice others and we need to dress appropriately and be a role model for our children. We shouldn’t be a stumbling block for our brothers. (Proverbs 7:10)
Light Hearted and Cheerful
No one likes to be around a stick in the mud! Making sure to be fun and happy around others is another way to be godly. You don’t want to walk around looking like you are mad at the world. Smile, be kind and laugh. Laughter is sometimes the best medicine and kindness does make the world a better place. (Proverbs 17:22)
Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. We all know we are beautiful inside and out and we have to remember that and not compare ourselves to others. God made no mistakes when he made us and we are beautiful no matter what we see as flaws. (Psalm 139:13-16)
This list was not created to be legalistic. I walked away from all that years ago. It is just a guide to help us grow as women in our walk with God. My hope and my prayer is it helps as a blessed reminder that how we act is a reflection with our walk in Christ.
