Pastor's Sunday Sermon
May 9, 2021
Happy Mother's Day
This woman of noble character that is being spoken about here is trustworthy and devoted.
She is a woman of diligence and wisdom.
She is a giving person.
She is dependable.
She fears the Lord.
Women develop all of these traits as they follow Jesus, they can't help it.
If you are submissive to the Lord, these are some of the great things you can look forward to.
It takes a good Godly woman to make a good Godly mom, but it is always a battle. Thankfully, we have the Lord and each other to help us get there.
Who can find a wife of noble character?[a]
She is far more precious than jewels.[b]
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will not lack anything good.
12 She rewards him with good, not evil,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from far away.
15 She rises while it is still night
and provides food for her household
and portions[c] for her female servants.
16 She evaluates a field and buys it;
she plants a vineyard with her earnings.[d]
17 She draws on her strength[e]
and reveals that her arms are strong.
18 She sees that her profits are good,
and her lamp never goes out at night.
19 She extends her hands to the spinning staff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
20 Her hands reach[f] out to the poor,
and she extends her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid for her household when it snows,
for all in her household are doubly clothed.[g]
22 She makes her own bed coverings;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known at the city gates,
where he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes and sells linen garments;
she delivers belts[h] to the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing,
and she can laugh at the time to come.
26 Her mouth speaks wisdom,
and loving instruction[i] is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the activities of her household
and is never idle.[j]
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also praises her:
29 “Many women[k] have done noble deeds,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.
31 Give her the reward of her labor,[l]
and let her works praise her at the city gates.
