Scripture Text: Proverbs 31

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.



MOTHERS...God’s Precious Gift

Mothers are a precious gift from God. The book of Wisdom (Proverbs) says there is a woman whose “children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but you excel them all.” Proverbs 31:29 Who is this woman? Her name is, “MOTHER,” and she is a precious gift from God, as the next verse reveals: “Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain – but the woman who reverences the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:30.

What are the qualities of a mother who is truly a GIFT from God? There are four of them I’d like to mention this morning, each one
beginning with the letter of the word, “G-I-F-T”:

G - Gracious
“A precious gift” mother is one who is more concerned with the needs of others than she is for her own needs. She puts her family first, she puts those in need second and herself last. She is gracious and self-giving, not only in the words she speaks, but also in the deeds she does.

I – Intelligence
“A precious gift” mother is not just gracious, she is also intelligent, wise, industrious; she not only manages her family well, but also, her finances.

F – Faithfulness
“A precious gift” mother is gracious, intelligent and faithful. She is faithful to her husband, her family and her God.

T – Tenderness
“A precious gift” mother is tender-hearted, overflowing with love and kindness. She thinks tenderly, speaks tenderly, acts tenderly.

How should we respond to a precious gift that is given?
With thankfulness.

First, thank God for giving the precious gift of mothers (especially those mothers who have gone on to be with Him!);

Second, thank your MOTHER for being a woman of graciousness, intelligence, faithfulness and tenderness.

If she has failed in any of these areas, forgive her, if she has excelled, honor her.
