A remnant still remains, don’t lose heart!

Have you ever wondered at the type of news we hear on almost daily basis? If its not accidents, its murders, immorality or some act of depravity. Because ‘bad news sells’, we are bombarded on every hand by such bad news that it can make even a saint give up on humanity! What a relief when we hear something good that restores our faith in people again.

Sometimes its not news, but people’s behaviours.We live in a very free society which encourages us to live according to how we feel. Morality is replaced with feelings: I feel, I want, I get. This drives us to indulge in acts that end up being detrimental to us and sometimes others. We are encouraged by others who tell us to live in the 21st century and stop being outdated or ‘old school’. Any attempts to disregard such views is often met with jeers and sneers from friends.

The Secret of the Proverbs 31 Woman

The Proverbs 31 Woman is like an enigma, she seems to have it all. She is industrious, she is smart, she is a planner, she takes care of herself and her family, she brings honour to her husband and he in turn does not only love her, he and their children praise her. Wow! I’m sure all women want to know how she does it.

The secret of this lady is found towards the end of the chapter. It is in Proverbs 31:30, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”
