CALL HER BLESSED

“Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her, saying, Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all” ( Prov. 31:28029).

still waiting for that praise
Still Waiting for That Praise?
  • It’s a busy world, and we forget sooo much that’s important.
  • This day is the Lord’s Day.
  • He’s the one who wants us to praise our mothers (not to the exclusion of Him.)
  • Being a mother is “natural” – Titus 2:4.
  • “Motherhood is the sacred marriage of the mundane and the eternal.”
  • “The glory of motherhood comes camouflaged in so much chaos.” (Lisa Jo Baker)
  • “Have you called your mother today?”
what women offer to society
What Women Offer to Society
  • They are “civilizing”.
  • Man discovered salt. Women discovered pepper and cinnamon and paprika and all the rest.
  • Women are responsible for art. Michelangelo’s wife said, “Honey, I need a picture to cover that blank wall.”
  • Men are basic. We need that. Women are spice.
  • They are Nurturing.
  • What would happen if a child said, “Daddy, kiss this and make it better.”?
  • Nothing, cause it won’t happen.
  • We go to mother for heartaches, headaches and all the rest.
  • Yes, these are generalizations, but they do “generalize.”
moses mother
Moses’ Mother
  • Exodus 2
  • The risk
  • The love
  • She “gave him up” to save him.
  • Trusted God (and Miriam).
  • Did she have questions, troubles, anxiety?
  • Courage, Faith, Love – what great qualities.
  • Did he ever get to “praise” her?
samuel s mother
Samuel’s Mother
  • I Sam 1
  • Had it been up to Elkanah, would Samuel have been born?
  • Total devotion to a “cause” – Samuel.
  • Spirit of sacrifice – to have Samuel, and then give him up.
  • How much did the early years with her nurture him spiritually?
  • “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
solomon s wisdom
Solomon’s Wisdom
  • I Kings 3:16ff
  • What of the women (forget for a moment the “harlot” part)?
  • Can we learn anything from their action with the children?
  • One died “accidentally”. Preventable?
  • Just steal another.
  • V. 26-27, besides divine wisdom, how could you tell which is deserving to be the mother?
  • Would a true mother sacrifice everything for her child?
unknown woman
Unknown Woman
  • Romans 16:13
  • How many other great, “unknown” women can you name?
  • Most of the events are “one episode” stories.
  • Does your life consist of “one episode”? How much don’t we know about them.
  • Some good, some evil, but they made the Lord’s list.
  • “Call them blessed.”
