What's the nicest thing someone has ever said to you? Proverbs 12:18 is so true. “Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.”
“Honey, where did you put my socks?” “Mom, I hate meat loaf. Can’t we order pizza?” “You do realize that the deadline is tomorrow, don’t you?” “We missed you at Bible study. Were you just too tired?”
As women, we constantly juggle the needs of everyone around us. We face enormous expectations and responsibilities the minute we get out of bed each morning. And in the midst of all the overwhelming demands on our time and energy, we often lose sight of who we are—of the women God intended for us to be.
So how should we cope? How can we find a healthy balance between earthly responsibilities and heavenly promises? God’s Word offers wisdom for all of us as we seek to become true women of faith.
With pitfalls around every corner, it is wise to take a fresh look at the qualities of godly womanhood provided by the book of Proverbs.
Moral foundations almost always collapse through slow erosion. But once they collapse, not even mighty men can stand.
