A Godly Mother

Pro 31:10-31

A passage authored by King Lemuel. Nothing else is known of him, other than this chapter; but, it seems as if he is writing his own mother’s resume. In so doing, in these wonderful verses, he plainly distinguishes a godly mother from all others.
In these verses, he seeks to point that a godly mother is different from all others, because she has:

I. A WORTH THAT IS UNEQUALLED (V. 10-12)

A. SHE IS A LADY OF VIRTUE (10a)

B. SHE IS A LADY OF VALUE (10b-12)

II. A WORK THAT IS UNMATCHED (V. 13, 15, 19)

A. IT IS A DESIRED WORK (v. 13)

B. IT IS A DEVOTED WORK (v. 15)

C. IT IS A DEDICATED WORK (v. 19)

III. A WISDOM THAT IS UNFEIGNED (V. 26,27)

A. THERE IS WISDOM IN WHAT SHE SPEAKS (v. 26)

B. THERE IS WISDOM IN WHAT SHE SHUNS (v. 27)

IV. A WEALTH THAT IS UNSHARED (V. 28-31)

A. BY THE PRAISE OF HER FAMILY (v. 28)

B. BY THE PRAISE FROM HER FATHER (v. 30)

C. BY THE PRAISE FOR HER FRUITS (v. 31)

Amen brother! I like that outline. My mother, is a good woman too. She worked three jobs at one time to keep me and my sister off of welfare after my Dad left. She raised us as best she could and thank the Lord my sister and I are both S.A.V.E.D. My Dad is saved now too. He lives in New York and is serving the Lord!
