Where Is The Virtue In My Lover? Many people enter relationships and marriage expecting the other partner to be loving and sweet with little expectation on their part. 

They seem to indulge themselves in their weaknesses. We permit ourselves to still linger in our shortcomings, where we are still dealing with our flesh. We expect our partner to be a shoulder we can lean on and a support system to carry all our burdens.

We expect them to be our solution to every problem and to have answers to all our problems. 

We expect them to understand us when we are naughty, moody, and unpleasant.

As all these expectations seem wonderful, the reality is that there is no human being capable of fitting into that mold. 

The Godhead, that is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is the only perfect one that can fit into that mold.

The Bible rightly says in Proverb 20:6 the last phrase, a faithful man who can find?

Pro 20:6  Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? 

Your search for a faithful man is going to be a long search. The faithfulness of character, and diligence in all things, spiritual and natural comes only when we embrace the virtues of God. When God the Father becomes our father indeed, God the Son becomes our meditation day and night and the Holy Spirit becomes our greatest ally.

The Proverbs 31 Woman paints an incredible picture of a woman of virtue, strength, and character, which happens to be every man’s dream woman.  Verse 30b seems to be the most important verse in the whole chapter. I think the whole chapter rests on this verse where the secret of Proverb 31 woman hinges.

Pro 31:30  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 

The proverb 31 woman fears the Lord. 

It is high time we begin to look inwards and begin to develop our own virtue by the fear of the Lord. Whether man or woman, God is the only guaranteed source of our virtue.

An omelet is not better than the eggs that make the omelet. Instead of putting pressure on the other party for performance, let us work at becoming virtuous ourselves. Let us work at being loving, caring, gentle, kind, forgiving, a person of the word and spirit.

Whether in a relationship or in marriage.  Let us work at being that powerful person. That person that will be a positive influencer in the relationship and marriage.
