Thursday Thirteen - A Prudent Wife

Proverbs 19:14
Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the LORD.

Do you know what it means to be prudent? I looked it up and it basically means wise and careful. Here are some questions I am now asking myself as I challenge myself in being a more prudent wife.
  1. Am I wise in handling practical everyday problems?
  2. Do I use my common sense when handling situations and making decisions?
  3. Am I careful about my conduct and how I carry myself?
  4. Am I careful in providing for the future by foreseeing what we will need and making sure we can meet that need? Short term like dinner and long term.
  5. Do I use money wisely?
  6. Do I choose my words carefully?
  7. Am I practical when it comes to my desires?
  8. Do I have good judgment when making decisions?
  9. Am I discerning of all that is going on in situations?
  10. Do I use what I have on hand wisely?
  11. Am I careful of my attitude with my husband?
  12. Am I careful in the upbringing of my children?
  13. Do I stay level headed with all that life throws at me?
It says a prudent wife is from the Lord. It is important to be prudent then to be a blessing to our husbands.



  1. what a great list and a much needed reminder for all of us!

  2. Great questions! They are very helpful and encourage us to be the best wives we can be.
