Learn what the Bible says about being a virtuous woman and mother. Happy Mothers Day.

Holy Trinity = MAT 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

JOH 15:26 = Trinity alluded -- "When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, {that is} the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me,

The Helper = God the Holy Spirit who is called the Spirit of Truth.

The Father and the Son are both mentioned in this verse which cults deny and say there is only one real God, cults say there is one God only, no Jesus, and no Holy Spirit.

They teach Jesus is a little less than the Father and the Holy Spirit and some claim is not even a person but an influence or a power but not a person.

The Trinity is referred to -- 2CO 13:14  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.

TRINITY is mentioned:

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The love of God the Father.

The fellowship of the Holy Spirit;

This being a Holiday to set apart and honor and reveal our love and gratitude for mothers.

Virtuous Mother - Pro 31 = God the Holy Spirit to bring the two together, the virtuous woman who became also a virtuous mother.

PRO 31:30   Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears or respects the Lord, she shall be praised.

Especially if they are mothers with virtue or virtuous mothers who not only have her godly responsibility as a wife but also her godly responsibility as a mother.

You do not have to be a beautiful person on the outside to be a beautiful person on the side God is concerned about which is on the inside.

Pro 31:30  “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain [the outside] but a woman who respects and honors the Lord shall be praised” [that’s the inside].

Pro 31:10-31 is an acrostic Proverb which is a Hebrew way to file in alphabetical order the subject that is being studied.

Each verse begins with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet and represents an important fact that no believer could really understand until they found out what the file is.

There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, Pro 10-31,   we have 22 verses with each verse beginning with the Hebrew alphabet and helps us to understand what the author is saying.

The Hebrew letter Aleph speaks of prosperity, therefore in Pro 31:10 which is where the Hebrew acrostic begins with Aleph which represents prosperity.

The first word in Pro 31:10 begins with the letter A called aleph and it means prosperity so under the prosperity file we read PRO 31:10   An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.

The word strength (odz) means stability, strength, and glory.

Keil and Delitzsch = have power over details of life and problem circumstances, it also means majesty or splendor while solving the problems a wife and mother has to face.

Strength can especially come from her stability which is the result of a right relationship with her man who also is so grateful to have a woman with virtue so that He is constantly treating her as the queen she is to him.

When a woman finds her right man and honors and respects him, she becomes a stable woman, as a wife and as a mother.

The whole point back in PRO 31:25 of the word odz translated Strength means stability, strength, and glory in the soul.

Dignity is the Hebrew word hadar which means glamour, ornamentation, magnificence and honor.

We have inner beauty and dignity of soul are her clothing.

Sachaq is a laughter based on relaxation and mocking.

The mocking means she's not intimidated by the threats of the future.

  1. She has doctrine in her soul.
  2. She has her right man.

William Congreve said Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

When she speaks, the right man is thrilled because wisdom comes out of her mouth.

Divine viewpoint and Bible doctrine is the basis of her conversation.

This is the seventeenth letter of the Hebrew file which is the “pe” file representing the mouth.

The first word in this sentence is the letter “pe” which is the word Piyhaa meaning her mouth.

She is not only is beautiful to him but get this, she talks, that is, with wisdom.

When she opens her mouth, her soul is turned inside out.

As a doctrinal mother,  she gives, especially her daughters, words of wisdom and reveals the doctrine of authority to both her sons or her daughters.

She opens her mouth and her words reveal what's inside her soul.

For the virtuous mother, she opens her mouth in wisdom.

Wisdom is chokmah which refers to residential doctrine.

Kindness is chesedh meaning grace.

On her tongue she has the doctrine of grace which means she has the power and the ability to keep herself from maligning, gossiping, etc.


  1. There is the woman’s side.
  2. There is the man’s side.
  3. There is the real truth.

Solomon had warned his own sons (Proverbs 5:1-6) where he spoke openly about the seductive woman and the results of listening to her flattery in your life.

If they would listen to his wisdom and pay attention to his understanding that they could have discretion and insight into how the seductive seducer works her magic over the willing man.

Pro 31:10-31, we find King Lemuel’s mother's wisdom in describing a woman of virtue and a woman who is worthy of praise.

The virtues that she describes to her son or perhaps sons are not only outward characteristics but internal virtue as well.|

Proverbs 31:30, again, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain ….”

Charm in the Hebrew refers to elegance or favor or beauty meaning outward beauty is not the most important feature in a woman.

She should make herself look as beautiful as she can……for her man!

Deceitful in the Hebrew means a fraud or deception.

Her charm is deceitful, it's a fraud, it's a deception. Beauty is vain.

(1) The charm of a beautiful woman can be a fraud.

(2)  She may simply use her beauty and her charm to manipulate you.

(3) Beauty is fleeting. It does not last forever.

You can look in the mirror, can't you ladies?

(4) If this is all a man wants in his wife or a woman, he is going to be greatly disappointed if that's all he is looking for - only beauty.

(5) The real beauty of a woman is in her soul.

That's the real beauty of the “Virtuous mother.”

The number one priority in your life should be to respect God and obey His Word.

And so today,

I would like to say,

Thank you to the Mother’s

Who live this way!
