Living Virtuously Book Study: Chapter 20 & 21

Virtuous Joy and Kindness

She exudes kindess.

She does not gossip.

She has integrity.

There is nothing haughty or pretentious about her.

When she speaks she is gentle, full of wisdom, and eager to offer encouragement.

Who is this lady?

This is somebody who practices Proverbs 31:26, “She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.”

In this chapter, Erin Harrison teaches us the characteristics of a virtuously kind woman. This woman is not just a mythical creature, but one we should aspire to be like.

A joy-filled woman has a great outlook on life and is optimistic even in the face of trouble.

She is thankful and is full of gladness. Steadfast and true to her faith, she is strong and does not grow weary in doing good.

Come and let’s explore these two chapters together as we learn about becoming a joy-filled and kind woman.
