A Proverbs 31 Mother

Proverbs 31: 25-28- “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

 

When I think of a good mother, I think of mine. That’s how it should be.

As I remember my mother’s good qualities, I think of Proverbs 31.

Although these verses are written about wives, they are just as applicable to mothers. A good wife and a good mother share many—if not all—of the same qualities.

An amazing mother inspires those around her.

Why?

Because she walks with honesty and dignity.

She laughs and enjoys life.

She is wise and shares her knowledge with her family.

She runs her household well. She is industrious—a hard worker.

No wonder her husband and children are thankful for her!

It’s a blessing to be a mother—to provide a home that is secure and welcoming for family and friends.

On this special day, I thank God for Proverbs 31 Mothers everywhere.

    A recent memorial I went to for a lovely mother Had “her children will rise up and call her blessed” as the key verse. I pray my children will feel that way about me. Kay
