It’s Day 3 of our Proverbs 31 Woman Bible Study!
In today’s reading, we find Proverbs 31:11-12 says:
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
WOW!! We are designed to bring GOODNESS to the lives of our husbands, family, friends, and everyone we meet! This is an important call on our lives and one we should take seriously.
Just imagine, for a moment, a world infected with goodness, all because we choose to live as a Proverbs 31 Woman! YES! (I’m totally here for it!)
In yesterday’s lesson, we learned that a virtuous woman is priceless! We did a Word-Study on the word “virtuous.” We gained a better understanding of the value of rubies over diamonds. You can get caught up with yesterday’s lesson here!
In today’s lesson we will learn what it means (and doesn’t mean) to be a place where your husband’s heart can trust. . . aka his “good thing.” We’ll delve into her characteristics that made her so.

Being His “Good Thing”
Here’s the biggest character development piece from this scripture – trustworthiness
The Proverbs 31 Woman is a woman who is trustworthy and of impeccable character.
In other words, she also had a good name. We know the Bible tells us that a good name is to be chosen over riches, fame, or glory. (Proverbs 22:1)
Because of this woman’s integrity, she brought her husband good into his life regularly and consistently.
He had no lack of gain because of her “goodness”!
As wives, being able to bring good to to our husband’s live’s is POWERFUL!
Let’s take this a step further. . .
. . . being able to bring good to anyone’s life is POWERFUL!
Your Husband’s Heart Is In Your Hands
The word “GOOD” is the Hebrew word “towb”
Here’s what it means:
- great fortune
- good welfare
Your goodness can bring prosperity, great fortune, good welfare, and happiness to your husband’s life.
I’m sure you’ve heard of this scripture before:
A man who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. (Proverbs 18:22)
Did you know that “good” the same word they use to describe the Proverbs 31 woman bringing “good” to her husband?
Let’s put it this way – a man who finds a wife, finds a good (prosperous, great fortune, good welfare, and happy) thing!

I invite you to take a look!
I want to take this one more step further – even beyond our husbands – we can bring good to the lives of others, too! Think for a moment about other people who are in your life:
The Proverbs 31 Woman brought good wherever she went. When people left her presence, they were more prosperous, had greater fortune, in better welfare, and much happier!
This should be our aim, my dearest SisterFriends! To be a “good” (prosperous, great fortune, good welfare, and happy) thing!
Think for a moment. . . How can you bring good to your husband’s life? What about the lives of others?
I’m sharing my list with you:
- Finding deals for our home, family, vacations/trips, things he says he likes and loves. . . even stuff for me (like hair products, makeup, jewelry, clothing. Hehe!)
- Giving him wise counsel. I want my husband to take my advice to heart and to know he can trust that what I’m saying or discerning is good for him. If it’s good for him, then it’s also good fo us!
- Walking in a high level of stewardship over our home, car, clothing, time, resources, and all possessions
You should want your husband to say. . .”she’s my good thing!”
You should want your family to say. . .”she’s my good thing!”
You should want your friends to say. . .”she’s my good thing!”
You should want your neighbors and community to say. . .”she’s my good thing!”
Loyalty Is Only Tested Over Time
I must tell you this character trait of being loyal requires a great level commitment. Loyalty is only really tested over time. You’ll never know how loyal someone is, until you’ve been around them for a while and weathered some storms together.
Part of being your husband’s “good thing” is being loyal to him.
(I’m not speaking about being loyal to fault, to where you are in sin, as a result of your loyalty. That’s toxic.)
Here’s a true test of loyalty for the Proverbs 31 Woman – Can you stick and stay through the better or worse, sickness and health, sickness and health…all the days of your life?
Those are our wedding vows. The ones we made in front of God, our parents, family, and friends. God expects us to uphold them.
Just know those vows we made will be tested. Our loyalty and commitment to them will develop our character, just like the Proverbs 31 Woman’s goodness.
And that, my dearest SisterFriends, is what it’s all about – developing the character trait of “goodness”![clickToTweet tweet=”‘She is MY ‘good’ thing!’ says the husband of the Proverbs 31 Woman! #p31″ quote=”‘She is MY ‘good’ thing!’ says the husband of the Proverbs 31 Woman! #p31″] She is MY 'good' thing!' says the husband of the Proverbs 31 Woman! #proverbs31businesswoman #proverbs31woman #biblestudy Click To Tweet

I take a counter-culture, deep-dive approach into the characteristics about this woman and how we can apply them to our lives. It’s not a beat-you-over-the-head-with-an-impossible-standard type of bible study, either.
It’s about liberating you, to know the truth of God’s Word, so you can live in the fullness of your calling and purpose.
It’s truly a deep-dive + life application bible study that will transform, comfort, and inspire you, as you walk and live as a Woman of Valor!
