Sermon Thought

Prov. 31:30 Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

Our Moms are special. They do far more that most husbands and children realize. Now we must recognize that not all Moms set a good example. With a society that promotes being beautiful as the goal of women, we need to know that being beautiful on the outside is not as important as being beautiful in spirit. Having a character of reverence for the Lord is far more beautiful than physical beauty. Now please understand that there is not one thing wrong with trying to look good physically but if a lady look outwardly like a Miss Universe but has the character of evil, then that woman is ugly. The same thing is true about Moms. A woman can be a mother yet have the character of wickedness and be a horrible mother. In the book of Proverbs chapter 31 we find a list of attributes of a virtuous woman, or we could say a great Mom. When a mother displays these virtue then she is a mother to be praised. Her husband is blessed and her children speak good things of her. May our Moms who are living be like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31. May their husband say good things of her and may her children sing her praises.
