The heart-adorning of a godly women.

Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable beauty of a quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:3,4 NKJV.

Heart, kardia, Strong’s #2588: The definition of this word is, “thoughts, feelings, mind, middle,” as the deepest, most inner recess of our being. A godly woman, abiding in the Holy Spirit (who Himself lives in the hidden place of our hearts) can grow to learn a trust in the insights and understanding the Lord gives her.
With a gentle and quiet spirit, God wants her to bring insight and value to her husband and their marriage. She is to be “adorned” with a spirit that is not self-exalting or casting herself as her husband’s teacher; yet, they are still ordained to be and become full partners as the husband receives the day-to-day relational “help” God has given to him in his wife.
Genesis 2:18 says, And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” A helper indicates that Adam’s strength for all he was called to be and do was inadequate in itself. Comparable to him denotes complementarity. The needed help is for daily work, procreation, and mutual support through companionship.
