For Her Price is Far Above Rubies

For Her Price is Far Above Rubies

Spread the love

Nothing is hidden from God. He knows the innermost thoughts of our hearts.

I have prayed for years to be married to a saved, sanctified, loving, handsome, prosperous man. I can’t seem to meet the right man for me. I even tried the Christian dating sites and didn’t meet anyone that peaked my interest. I don’t despair because I know Jehovah is looking out for me.

I must remember who I am and to whom I belong. Females of God are virtuous women –  Proverbs thirty-one women. We know our worth and will not settle. We are King’s children, princesses, royalty, priestesses, chosen, set apart, vessels of God.

We cannot be yoked with someone that is not of the same kingdom.

I share my research of rubies with you so you can also recognize how awesome and valuable you are. “Rubies are one of the most popular gems for good reasons. As gem-quality examples of the mineral corundum, they are exceptionally durable and one of the few gem species whose color reaches vivid saturation levels. Fine quality rubies are some of the most expensive gems, with record prices over $100,000 per carat. Accurately grading rubies requires knowing a great deal about them, and there is a great deal to know about them.

Prices are dependent on origin, color, size, and clarity: from a low of $100 to $15,000/ct. Myanmar or Burmese stones in ½ to 1 carat sizes with slightly purplish red color and light inclusions range from $300 to $3,000/ct., for example. The price survey done by the International Gem Society reports that clean, top-color gems in the ½ to 1 carat size range are being sold at retail with a range of $1,000-$3,000/ct.”

Ladies, we are more valuable than rubies – fearfully and wonderfully made.

 “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”

Proverbs 31:10 (KJV)
