An Excellent Woman Needs To Be Praised


Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” — Proverbs 31:28-29

It's so appropriate that we land on these words today on the eve of Mother's Day.

Fellas, tomorrow I want you to take a moment to tell your mother and the mother's around you, "Happy Mother's Day." But do me a favor. When you do this, do two things to make it memorable:

  1. First, tell her one thing she does better than any other mom.
  2. Second, tell her why this means so much to you.

She will never forget it. It will easily be the best gift you ever get her.

ASK THIS: What does your mom do better than other moms? And why does this mean so much to you?

DO THIS: Tell her.

PRAY THIS: God, thank you for my mother.

PLAY THIS: Isn't She Lovely — Anthem Lights.

  1. Andreas says:

    God exhorts us to honor father and mother. He values honoring parents enough to include it in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:12) and again in the New Testament: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with a promise, so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:1-3). Honoring parents is the only command in Scripture that promises long life as a reward. Those who honor their parents are blessed (Jeremiah 35:18-19). In contrast, those with a “depraved mind” and those who exhibit ungodliness in the last days are characterized by disobedience to parents (Romans 1:30; 2 Timothy 3:2).

    my mom showed me the meaning of hard work, she was a receptionist and always had a job doing something while we were living under her care. now that she is able to not need to work to pay bills, my dad is the only one consistently working and she is finally able to relax and enjoy more free time. Thanks mom for raising me into a man after God’s heart and for instilling in me the meaning of hard work.

  3. Trent says:

    My mom is the best at no nonsense no sugar coating love. And that is just how I feel love should be. Real. Honest. Firm and correcting when need be. But love all the way. She was/is a big part of the man I am today. Praise God for tuff mothers. I could never do it

  4. David L. Trima says:

    My Mom is the one that’d bring me to church, and is responsible for leading me on my walk. Dad helped to lead me by stepping aside. He grew up Catholic and didn’t want me to be. He was 1st born to Italian immigrants. He did not want to hurt them by going to a Baptist church, other than when I was doing something special like a Sunday school project. He supported everything I did

  5. Jeremy says:

    My mom passed in 2018 and one thing she did better than anyone was gift giving. She had a knack for always remembering that little thing you mentioned earlier in year that you wanted and just forgot about. Then suddenly you’d open your gift and there it was. She paid attention. Difficulties aside, she was wonderful.
