Proverbs 31:1-11

The sayings of King Lemuel – an inspired utterance his mother taught him. Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb! Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers! (Proverbs 31:1-2)

My mother was a wise woman. She took the time to share her knowledge with me. She advised me to stay away from alcoholic beverages, for it was not the drink of choice for kings. She wanted me to stay in control while on the throne. My mother also looked out for me concerning women. Purity is the best policy, she advised.

As a sympathetic mother, she wanted me to succeed and make a difference in the lives of people less fortunate. She suggested I defend those who could not defend themselves. It was important to make sure the persons received justice. My mother saw no room for feeling timid or inferior. Knowing my mother believed in me, helped be less timid. I was an answer to her prayers! I did not hesitate to help and change people's lives, hopefully for the better.

Lord, Thank You for putting people in my life who encourage me. Let their words penetrate into my mind when doubts and fears try to overtake my thinking. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
