10 Truths About A Woman’s Worth

10 Truths About A Woman’s Worth

In response to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (which my wife and I did not watch), here are 10 things you need to know about a woman’s worth. Your worth is not found in the shape of your body.

“It is important for our daughters and sons to see women and men as different, but equally valued members of society. The measure of a person’s worth has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with character.” -Terry Rosenberg

I will be completely honest when I say I am not jealous of women who are living in today’s society. I cannot begin to understand the pressures of being a woman, working as a woman, living as a woman, and trying to keep up to date with what the newest trend of “being a woman” enforces. You ladies have it tough, and I want to apologize for the way culture and society has treated you over the years.

As a husband, I need to be honest with myself when I say there are many things about my wife I will never be able to truly understand. Why you ask? Because I’m not a woman. I’ve come to understand that I can’t fix everything, and that there is only so much I can do until my wife ultimately needs the care of Jesus. Although I constantly remind my wife how beautiful she really is, it can’t help but think the society and culture around her might make her insecurities believe otherwise. The reality is that we all have insecurities, and we all have our own way of dealing with them.

My purpose in writing this is to encourage women not to seek their worth through the game of comparison. Why? Because you will always judge yourself unfairly. I urge you to seek your worth in the cross of Jesus, His hope, and his everlasting love.

A woman’s worth isn’t measured by her outer appearance, but whether or not her heart is focused on The One who created her. 

While the world tells your to “wear this” or “buy that”, I want to tell you ignore the lies and focus your attention on the love of Jesus.

  1. A woman is worth more than her outer appearance.
  2. A woman is worth more than her title at work.
  3. A woman is worth more than whether or not she can have kids.
  4. A woman is worth more than how much money she makes.
  5. A woman is worth more than her waist size.
  6. A woman is worth more than the color of her skin.
  7. A woman is worth more than than what the media portrays her to be.
  8. A woman is worth more than the jewelry she wears.
  9. A woman is worth more than the name brands she does or doesn’t wear.
  10. A woman is worth more than the skin the world pressures her to show.

    This really resonated with me as a young woman growing up in today’s society. I want to thank you and show my appreciation for the way you believe that women are way more special than they are often given credit for. Kudos and God bless you!

    I feel so blessed after reading this. Every women should know that they are worthy of everything and that they will be loved by the way they really are.

    This is the way I look at my woman I focus on what’s in her heart, personality she is beautiful in my eyes regardless of the clothes wears, the latest fashion, makeup whatever. And I know God loves her too.

    Love it! I would also add that a woman is worth more than her social status: married, single, divorced. It’s a given, but a very important truth we must acknowledge and accept.

  • focusedonone February 2, 2014 at 4:01 PM

    I am very grateful God knows my heart and my mind. Everyone else can take a number!

    True. I think that real men no longer just aim to protect women from other factors that pose possible harm but most of all, real men ought to protect women from themselves. And yeah, when comparison begins, JOY fades…

    -A woman is worth more than her outer appearance.

    this is true. but we need to remember to respect those who try to look different and those who’s outer appearance may not resemble a man or woman. any human is different than what YOU think of their outer appearance.

    -A woman is worth more than her title at work.

    true, but we need to remember that those who chose not to enter the work force to do charitable acts are just as valuable. and that often women are denied the right to higher titles at work because of their gender. we need to realize that the work force is and has been dominated by men.

    -A woman is worth more than whether or not she can have kids

    also true but we need to remember that ability is different than choice. women who choice it is to not give birth are just as valuable as those who do.
    .
    -A woman is worth more than how much money she makes.

    once again, let’s remember that our contemporary society has consistently underpaid women. women at a job will work just as hard if not more than men and still not be as paid as well as a man.

    -A woman is worth more than her waist size.

    definitely spot on. we need to get over our idea of body image in our society.

    -A woman is worth more than the color of her skin.

    definitely…no questions asked. but let’s remember that often women of power are in a lower place of privilege than white women. it’s statistically proven

    -A woman is worth more than than what the media portrays her to be.

    the media is usually wrong!!! time after time it is proven.

    -A woman is worth more than the jewelry she wears.

    fr sure! why should we even expect women to wear jewelry. this is a thought to me that seems pretty superficial…like why should we even think women with expensive jewelry have more worth in the first place. it should never be a discussion, your jewelry does not deem your worth…(also many people are allergic to certain metals…ie. silver)

    -A woman is worth more than the name brands she does or doesn’t wear.

    i feel like you could of included this with the jewelry talk and talked about some other ways women are oppressed by society!

    A woman is worth more than the skin the world pressures her to show.

    true but let’s not shame those who comfortably show skin on their own accord. different things empower different people…

    just thinking of more ways we can respect women and other nonmale-identifying people…only respect for you jarrid!!!

      I think you are looking into this way to much, I get that your trying to give insight but I feel like you were just digging for holes. Read it for its face value.

      As a girl I (personally) appreciated this list, I dont think some of those areas are something you could relate to an empathize with us on this.

    • honey February 9, 2014 at 11:07 AM

      Just make your own blog page if you believe all you said is missing from it. Each writer writes his or her thoughts. I also agree with this list I’m glad to read it coming from a man, since I made a video blog talking about this very thing last year. Couldn’t agree more.

  • itisallaboutfaithblog January 11, 2014 at 12:46 PM

    Praise God for your words and courage. Thank you!!

    Replace ‘her’ with ‘him’ and this would work equally as well for an out of shape man in a warm coastal area. Media drives a body image that is unrealistic for an average HUMAN.

  • Candice January 6, 2014 at 9:13 PM

    Love it! Made me think of a book I just read by an ex victoria secret model Kylie Bisutti I Am No Angel.

    A good measuring stick is proverbs 31. Though it is referring to wives, it mentions qualities like wisdom, generous, hard-working, (supportive of husband for wives) as important and lists beauty as fleeting. Our society has it backwards.
