Proverbs 31:26-31 (NIV)
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:
"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Proverbs 31 described the characteristic of a Woman Of God. My mom who is a non-christian seems to display all the attributes that was mentioned in the bible. To me, my mom is a perfect mother and i always hope to be like her if i am a mother. But I do admit there are times i am so upset with her i always ponder why did my mom sometime say such terrible things to me or endorse certain behaviours that does not seem right. Then again - we are all humans beings not perfect. Mother - sacrificial love for all children. The day of sacrifice begin when life was concieved in her womb.
A simple prayer for my mom:
God bless my mother; . . . all I am I owe to her. —Abraham Lincoln
