Here we go…my first attempt!

Studying Proverbs 31 : 7-9 yesterday really got me thinking.  Thankless Thursday was a post about thankless jobs that we as wives and mothers do every day. Yes these things need to be done. Yes these things are usually something we don’t love. Who loves cleaning the fridge? Who really loves cleaning a toilet?  I admit that I love having these things clean but the act of cleaning them doesn’t excite me at all.

Proverbs 31 : 7-9  Open your mouth for the dumb (unable to speak for themselves) for the rights of all who are left desolate and hopeless.  Open your mouth, judge righteously and administer justice for the poor and needy.

This two verses prompted a great discussion within our study group. What do the verses mean? How are they applicable in our lives? We spoke about those in our lives that genuinely need us to speak for them.  Who are these people? The homeless, the weak, our children, the lost?

As you meditate on these verses please leave a comment. I would love to hear another perspective on these verses.  Needless to say talking about some of the things I do daily that I wish someone would thank me for made me realize I should be thankful for having those things. Hello humble pie!  I am thankful I have a toilet to clean, a yard to tend to and dirty diapers to change. No these aren’t glamorous by any means but they are part of the life I love.

    Great perspective on those verses! I’m a momma, too, and I agree. There’s so much to be thankful for, even the dirty diapers. It can get overwhelming, but it’s SO worth it…all our service can be as unto the Lord which makes it eternal, and it’s ministering to the little ones who can’t do it themselves. Thank you for sharing!
