Scriptural Sunday – 22 January 2012

“She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
Proverbs 31:26

I am attending a class on Wednesday nights at church. It’s a Bible study over the book, Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst. During the video this past week, she tells a story about teaching her son how to do the hard thing and put away his selfish desires just as she walks into the house and into the pantry for a “quick-fix” chocolate snack. Just then the LORD spoke to her and asked her how could she demand one thing from her son and not from herself. That hit me right between the eyes!! How often do we do that in our own lives? How many times have I asked one thing of my children and yet I turn around and do just what I’ve asked them not to do. WOW!! This week my challenge has really been to speak with “wisdom and faithful instruction” so that I can be the best example for my children and husband. Besides my relationship with Jesus Christ, my family is #1 on my priority list. I want them to be proud of me. Not just because I'm his wife or their mother; but because I am a woman who "speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction." I want to guard my tongue so that everything I speak is holy and pleasing to the Lord.
