Do It with Love

Proverbs 31 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:20

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

As godly women who love the Lord we should aspire to help the poor and needy.  That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things.  Sometimes, it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture.  Each of us should do what God puts in our heart and do it with love.

Let God Lead You

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 20:24

A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.  How then can anyone understand their own way?

 

God is at work in your life and is directing your steps for His purpose.  You may be going through a hard time, but if you are faithful and obedient even when you don’t understand where He’s leading you, eventually, you will see the fruits of your labor.

Happy Father’s Day

The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

 

Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord.  Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity. Show your children love, discipline when necessary and have compassion on them.  Children, obey, respect and honor your father as the Lord commands.  Fathers and children, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.

A Cheerful Heart

Proverbs 15 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:15

All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

 

You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy.  The way to a cheerful heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder.

Kind Words

Proverbs 16 24

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

 

Let’s make an effort to encourage the people around us, especially our spouse and our children.  Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it’s so valuable.  Let’s build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage.  A kind word can change someone’s entire day.

Honor Her      

Proverbs 31 31.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:31

Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

 

Mothers deserve to be appreciated for all they do for their families.  Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.

Generous and Compassionate    

Proverbs 22 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:9

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

 

God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others as well. We serve a compassionate God and this creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more.  We can never out give God.
