Text: Proverbs 31:10-31 A Woman of noble character is a Go Mom!
10ƒnA wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 ¡§Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.¡¨
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Give her the reward she has earned,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Today is Mother¡¦s Day a day to honor and uplift our mothers. Everyone sitting in this service this morning has been affected by a mother. Motherhood has either affected you negatively or positively. I know that for some of you here today this Mother¡¦s Day will affect you with a smile or with a frown but everyone of us has a mother, had a mother, is a mother, or has been impacted by a motherly figure.
Mother¡¦s Day is a day that fulfills The Scripture ¡§Honor you father and Mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.¡¨ Today we are fulfilling one of the 10 Commandments of God found in Exodus 20:12. God rejoices at days like these were we honor the influential mothers of the Kingdom of God. We are going to call them Moms on the go for God ¡V Go Moms!
A poem for Mothers by Nicholas Gorden:
¡§Happy Mother¡¦s Day¡¨ means more than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things we never get to say.
It means I love you first of all, then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me, and that I honor you.
Video Illustration: Step Mom- The scenario is found at the end of the movie where she says things to her children that are meant to last the rest of their lives.

This goes for their spiritual children and their natural children!
