A Virtuous Woman

Try-It With-Me Tuesday, an interactive weekly time and place to foster connections that challenge and encourage the process to become a well-rounded person.

Mary, the mother of Jesus, in my nativity setWhen I challenged my class to develop an attribute, I chose one, too—virtue.  I’d been reading Luke 1:26-56 with them and looking for Mary’s qualities that helped her prepare the way for the birth of Jesus Christ. I admired this woman who was “blessed . . . among women,” for her courage, her faith, and her virtue. Now, I don’t just mean virtue as the Virgin Mary, but the moral excellence, righteousness and goodness she must have carried in her heart and expressed in her actions before and after the Savior’s birth. For this Christmas and the coming year, my gift to myself is to seek virtue.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. . .
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Proverbes 31:10, 25, 26
