Proverbs 31:25

Strength and honor are her clothing…

On Mother’s Day, let us honor the ladies in our lives! Whether a mother or daughter, a wife or single, a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, you are precious in the sight of God and a marvelous part of His plan.

Throughout the Bible, God uses women to accomplish His purposes. Graceful Abigail saved her foolish husband with her intelligence and hospitality. Risking her own life, courageous Esther rescued her fellow Jews from certain death. Deborah – a prophetess, poet, and warrior – served as a judge in Israel.

In the New Testament, Anna, the prophetess, served the Lord ceaselessly in the Temple. Successful businesswoman, Lydia, was the first recorded Christian convert in Europe. Paul entrusted Pheobe, a deaconess in the church at Cenchrea, to carry his letter to the Romans.

Jesus emphasized the worth of women. He healed them–the woman with the issue of blood and Jairus’ daughter who was presumed dead. He defended them when He rebuked those who criticized Mary for anointing His feet with expensive perfume. He delivered them; Mary Magdalene’s life changed forever when He cast out seven demons. He provided for them; from the Cross, He charged John to care for His mother.

On this day, we celebrate the dignity, intelligence, virtue, and Godly influence of the women in our lives. We rise up to call them blessed. In the immortal words of Solomon, “You are altogether beautiful…” (Song of Songs 4:7).


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May every daughter of the Most High experience the smile of her Father today. Walk in His favor and light.
