Day 27 of my 31 Days Writing Challenge! Well, since I skipped a day it’s day 26, but 26 days in the book of Sirach…awesome! Yesterday we considered A Good Wife: An Intelligent Wife. Have you given much thought lately to what kind of wife you are? Well, today (actually late tonight) let’s consider A Good Wife: A Modest Wife.
When I read this verse in Sirach 26, I immediately knew there had to be more to the word “modest” than just a woman who wore skirts and turtle necks. So I headed over to my bookmarked Thesaurus to see what some of the synonyms for “modest” are. Here are some of the words that stood out to me: humble, quiet, simple, discreet, nice, temperate.
