Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” – Proverbs 31:28-29
In a recent survey of what makes marriages last, one of the main factors was that each participant had a higher opinion of their spouse than the spouse did of themselves. This was part of the goal of the writer of the proverbs 31 woman. A woman could read this passage and wither under the comparison, but to look at our mothers and wives through the lens of the writer is to stand and bless them. This Mother’s Day lift up the woman who has no equal, for there may be many virtuous and capable women, but she surpasses them all! Happy Mother’s Day!
