Today's Verse: Proverbs 31:30 (KJV)

Friday, May 13, 2022

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
— Proverbs 31:30 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

So many things we honor and exalt in our culture are shallow and temporary. The one thing that lasts in a beautiful woman is not her charm or her beauty, but her godliness. Let's make sure that our church families and our physical families value godly women and give them the praise they deserve!

My Prayer...

Holy God, please give us better eyes and more faithful hearts that we may value in all people qualities that reflect your character. Bless us as we raise our children that we may instill in them a sense of proper values as they choose their life partner. And dear God, please help us in our churches to value and praise women for their holy character. In Jesus' name. Amen.
