I love these two verses!
Here we have a husband and children pouring out praise and adoration for the Proverbs 31 Woman and all the great things she’s done for her family.
It’s interesting because there is no mention of her specific character traits, like diligence in her work, resourcefulness with all she had, giving to those in need, enterprising, speaking wisdom – none of it. It simply says that many women have done well, but she excelled all of them!
In their eyes, no one else could compare to her. What a lasting impact she left on her family!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful for your husband and family to say the same thing about you? There are so many women who have done wonderful things, but YOU excel all of them! There is no comparison to you!
I want my family to speak of this about me. I want it for you, too!
Here’s a loaded question for you. . .
. . . What legacy do you want to leave for your children and husband?
Consider the message you want them to carry and tell of you and your life.
As your children are speaking about you, when you are not in their presence or they are adults, think about the message you want them to have about you.
The message they’ll tell their friends.
The message they’ll tell their teachers.
The message they’ll tell their roomates.
The message they’ll tell their future spouse.
The message they’ll tell their children.
What message do you want that to be?
Same is true for your husband. What is the message you desire your husband to say about you?
To his coworkers?
As you ponder on this, take the time to jot down the message you want said about you, while you are yet alive.
List all of them.
Then, evaluate where you are on this list.
See where you’ve accomplished greatness.
See where you need to grow.
See where you need to keep going.
Then get to work!
This is a really important idea for us to discuss.
Work on you more than you work on others.
It’s so easy for us to get caught up in what the next wife, mom, and woman aren’t doing.
It’s so easy for us to criticize another woman’s life and her choices (especially when we don’t know the full story.)
It’s so easy for us to see all of the flaws, corrections, and mistakes in others.
It’s so easy for us to know what another person needs to do to make their life better.
But what about us?
Do we take the same time and level of intensity to evaluate our lives and work on the areas necessary to grow?
I want to challenge you to make a decision to point less fingers and give less criticism to the lives of others. Instead, focus wholeheartedly on growing, pruning, and maturing in your own life.
After all, isn’t this the essence of Matthew 7:1-6? It’s not that we can judge or evaluate others’ lives. It’s that we should only do so, once we’ve addressed that same area in our own life.
Plus, like we learned in yesterday’s lesson, we really should spend more time working on our own lives to the glory of God, than focusing on others.
Because at the end of the day, we want our husband, children, family, and friends to rise up and call us blessed! We want them to have words of praise and adoration for the kind of woman we’ve become and the kind of life we’ve lived before God.
Promise me you’ll commit to becoming the best wife, mom, sister, friend, woman you can be!Your Living Legacy matters just as much as the one you'll leave behind after you're gone. #p31Click To Tweet
