Mothers – Women of Faith

As you honor your mother or the memory of your mother this year, consider the foundation of the faith in your family. Many times Mother is the one whose steadfast faith holds a family together. It is often a mother’s faith that is the foundation for our beliefs.

It’s difficult for a Mother’s Day to pass without considering the virtuous woman spoken of by King Solomon in Proverbs 31: “A good wife, who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.’ Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.”
