Mother’s Work

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 6, 2011

“She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; 
her husband also, and he praises her” (Proverbs 31:27-28).

A mother’s work is never done. There is always another meal to prepare, a face to wipe, clothes to wash, an errand to run, a room to clean, and a dollar to manage. She serves unselfishly like Jesus, “After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him” (John 13:5). A mother’s work makes those around her look good. She is God’s chosen one in the home.

The law of love and kindness is written on her heart, but some days it’s hard to have the right attitude. The work can become laborious, monotonous, and taken for granted. It is at this point of feeling unappreciated that a wise mom reminds herself of heaven’s applause. She is really serving for an audience of one, her loving Lord. Her Savior Jesus smiles at her service, and that’s enough. The reward of doing right encourages her heart to do right.

In addition, there are the rewards of a child’s smile and warm embrace. “Thank you, Mommy, for being my Mommy.” Or a loving husband who genuinely thanks her and serves his wife by listening, serving, and giving praise. She takes pride in her work because she recognizes that everything she has is a gift from God. Her home and family are a reflection of her and her Heavenly Father. She manages the home for her Master’s glory.

Lastly, your work is a model for your children to follow. Your actions become a teacher that prepares them for adulthood. Chores done well create children who work well. Assign them responsibilities so they learn thoroughness, cleanliness, and organization. Indeed, your work creates calm in the home, just as the Lord quiets your soul.

“But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me” (Psalm 131:2).

Am I content serving my family for Christ’s sake?

  1. I’m the manager of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to develop my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain give me some advice 🙂 I considered that the best way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a reputable site where I can buy CBD Shops Business Leads I am already looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
