Proverbs 31 Man

If someone would ask what could be the veritable Bible verse that could serve as a guide on how to live as a godly woman, It is easy to remember the Proverbs 31 verse.

Proverbs 31 gives a picture of the virtuous woman. This is not only beneficial to ladies but to single men as well, in search of their God's best, since Proverbs 31 describes the ideal lady of quality. This in turn, protects godly men from being deceived and lured into shallow traps and serves them a potent reminder that an enduring marriage is built on a firm foundation. This list of the qualities of a godly wife assists young men in choosing a woman since it lists down the godly characteristics of a woman that they should consider marrying.

This made me think and wonder what the Bible says of the godly characteristics of a man that we should consider marrying.
What Bible verse could we use in discerning the supreme God's best for ladies?
What Bible passage is analogous to the Proverbs 31 woman that could give us the characteristics and qualities of a man that we should consider marrying?
What is a Proverbs 31 man?
What bible quote should we use to help us choose the qualities of a godly husband?
What should serve as our criterion in choosing our life partner?
What should be our standards in choosing God's choice?
What should serve as our "peg" for the "God's best" intended for us?
Since ladies are eyeing to be Proverbs 31 Woman for this godly men, Proverbs 31 will lead us in on what a Proverbs 31 man should be.

The Proverbs 31 Man is a leader and is a man of wisdom - Proverbs 31:23.
It shows us that he was as a leader in the community since he is respected at the city gate.
He is a man who was sought for advice since he took "his place among the elders".

He was a sounding board for those looking for information and advice.
He seeks Godly wisdom, which developed his skills in making efficient and well-thought out decisions.
Being considered a leader is an earned position, not solely based on one's age.

He is a man of prayer and encouragement - Proverbs 31:28.
He appreciates the contributions of his wife.

With these, we can basically assume that since our our husbands would be someone who will be our Spiritual Leader in the family, it is extremely important that we choose a genuine spiritual leader, so that obedience to them wouldn't be much of a struggle for us. We should consider a person who is wise, so that we can submit lovingly to him.

But what are the specific qualities of a great leader?
During the time of Paul, religious leaders are known to be deacons. It is such a blessing for us ladies that Paul had enumerated the qualifications for deacons in 1Timothy3.

If there is a Proverbs 31 Woman for the man, we have a 1Timothy3 Man that could serve as our checklist for an ideal godly husband, while men can use this as a guide on how to be a godly man.

1 Timothy 3 essentially speaks of how a deacon should behave.

It is somewhat surprising to find out that the characteristics of the wise in Proverbs 31 is remarkably well similar to how the deacons in 1 Timothy 3 are described.

1Timothy 3 summarized what Proverbs has taught in greater detail.
