What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Likely, on this Mother's Day, there are more Bibles open to Proverbs 31 than any other scripture. That chapter begins, “The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.” The five prophecies that this mother taught are pertinent on this Mother's Day. A prophet is one who rares back and says “Thus saith the LORD.” Today anyone with a King James Bible might act as that prophet, and certainly a mom needs to teach these five prophecies. First king Lemuel's mom teaches a prophecy that king Solomon himself did not learn, “Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.” The wisest king was destroyed, not heeding this prophecy. Mom says, “It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink.” When Christ “washed us from our sins in his own blood” he made us “kings and priests” (Rev1:5-6,5:10). Kings are commanded, “Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.... Wine is a mocker,... and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise“ (Psalm 20:1,23:31). Mom's prophecies go on, “Open thy mouth, judge righteously” and “Who can find a virtuous woman?” (Prov 31:9,10). But don't miss mom's prophecy about mothers; “What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?” It emphasizes mothering skills, physical differences, and marriage vows. Women are constructed to be mothers. They have different and larger organs and immune capabilities to produce, protect, and nurture an infant. More men died of nova corona than women. And God also built in a deeper capacity to love, coddle, and cherish. Moms are forever moms. Happy Mother's Day.
