What Makes A Woman An Indispensable Treasure.

The worth of a woman is not about how expensive her jewelry, makeup, clothing or shoes are. It's even more costly than what she uses to adorn her physical appearance.
.
A lot of ladies felt that being physically attractive and endowed are all that is important. But little did they know that the real worth of a woman is about the quality of her character. When other things fail, it is her character that keeps her attractive.
.
Quite a lot of ladies in this age are often characterized by lacking good moral standards. The way some of them behaves, relate or converse with their mates and elders are appalling. Some because they don't want to take trash would treat you as a piece of trash.
.
Mind you, they'll wish to be married to a nice man while having a dent in their character. Is that possible? There are several factors that makes a woman a treasure in life but for the sake of this piece, I'd concentrate more on the quality of her character.
.
Character defines who a person is, it's a distinctive feature that a person is known for. Good character spreads beyond where you get to and bad ones also spread faster.
.
When your name is heard, what can be said of you in one sentence? I know men also have character issues but would deal with that in subsequent article.
.
What defines a lady's character is her belief and who she allows to influence her. Show me your friends and I'll tell who you are. The kind of female friends you keep to a large extent define what kind of character you'll be known for should you allow them to influence you.
.
When you walk with a lady who's rash in her words, you'll soon become like her because you'd believe it's proper to spill out words without having a taste of them.
.
Do your friends have regards for elderly ones? Do they have courtesy, respect and piety? Watch who you walk with lest you become like them.
.
Concerning your belief, what do you believe in? Do you believe in good morals or loose morals? Do you believe in God or you choose to believe in human philosophy that contradicts godly virtues?
.
Sad to say this, a lot of ladies ignored the home training they received while some weren't properly trained. Don't believe in your beauty; character matters most. It takes beauty to attract a man but character keeps you in marriage.
.
Having academic excellence, career success, financial independence, exposure or you're spiritually sound without having a good character is nothing but a waste. When you believe in ephemeral things as the true worth of a woman, you'll tend to ignore working on your character.
.
Don't choose to be like a celebrity, become who God wants you to be and let His word mold your being. Peter admonish women not to focus on external beauty but that they should possess a meek and quiet spirit (1 Pet. 3:3-4). God is not interested in your hairdos, or how expensive your jewelry and clothes are, He respect women like Esther, Sarah, Abigail and others.
.
In case you don't know, your character would determine how you'd fare well with your in-laws, I hope someone reading this isn't amongst those who wished their mother-in-law shouldn't be alive. No matter how cruel she might be, a good character will overcome the bad ones.
.
Don't allow civilization or westernized culture erode your values and culture. It's not old-fashioned to give respect to your elders as some culture does by kneeling. Do not forget that a good character speaks volumes about who you are.
.
Know how to show respect to the male folks for those who deserve it. And if they don't, politely deal with them rather than be rude and harsh.
.
Work on your character should you notice any flaws in it. Be polite. Don't be ill-mannered, disrespectful, proud, worldly or rash with your words. Remember, a beautiful woman without a beautiful character is not better than a woman with an enviable character.
