Moms, Grandmothers, and Proverb 31 Women

A mong your countless qualities as a GODLY MOTHER, your strength, honor, wisdom, gratitude, modesty, grace, and virtue are clear and abundant in your nature.  For giving of yourself so generously, to the glory of God and for the well-being of your children and family, your eternal reward will be great!

NINE passages in God's Word to identify a GODLY MOTHER's nature...
1. Proverbs 31:25-31,  "Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looks well to the ways of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates."
2. Matthew 12:47-50,  "Then one said unto Him (Jesus), Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with Thee. But He answered and said unto him that told Him, Who is My mother? and who are My brethren? And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples, and said, Behold My mother and My brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of My Father which is in heaven, the same is My brother, and sister, and mother."
3. 1 Chronicles 16:8-11,  "Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His Name, make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him, talk ye of all His wondrous works. Glory ye in His holy Name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His face continually."
4. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,  "Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Charity never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away."
5. Psalm 73:26-28,  "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. For, lo, they that are far from Thee shall perish: Thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from Thee. But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all Thy works."
6. 1 Timothy 2:8-10,  "I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame-facedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works."
7. Proverbs 11:16a,  "A gracious woman retains honor:"
8. Titus 2:1,3-5,  "But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
9. Proverbs 12:4-7,  "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit. The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand."
Our Lord's triumphal return is much closer than we think! If we want to be included in His divine plan for these last days, we must exercise our freedom to receive and carry out our orders from our Creator in Heaven. We all must totally commit ourselves to staying pure in His sight, repentant of any sin that we may have allowed into our lives, the ones you know of as well as the ones of which you are not even aware of. This is key to our being effective at reaching those who don’t know Jesus. The time to reach those around us, with the life-giving and life-saving message of Jesus Christ is now! "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that wins souls is wise." (Proverbs 11:30)
