A Woman of God is to be Praised

I heard recently about a new Survivor reality TV show. “Six married men will be dropped on an island with 1 car and 4 kids each, for 6 weeks. Each kid plays two sports and either takes music or dance classes. There is no access to fast food. Each man must take care of his 4 kids, keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, complete science projects, cook, and do laundry. The men must wear makeup daily, which they must apply themselves, either while driving or while making four lunches. They must attend weekly PTA meetings; clean up after their sick children at 3:00 a.m., and get a 4-year-old to eat a serving of peas. The kids vote them off the island, based on their performance. The last man to win gets to play the game over and over again for the next 18-25 years...eventually earning the right to be called ‘Mother’” (Mikey’s Funnies). I want to bless and encourage the women of First CRC this morning. It is Mother’s Day and my thought will certainly apply to all mothers, but I want to give this word to all the women here, mothers, grandmothers, wives, single moms, single women. First CRC is blessed among churches to have many godly women and Scripture is clear, women who love and fear the Lord are to be honored and praised even in public. Our text is a familiar one and a common Mother’s Day text. Proverbs 31:28-31.
