SOPC Traditional Service for May 14, 2017. “Honoring Our Mothers!”
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 “Honor your father and mother”– which is the first commandment with a promise–
3 “that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Proverbs 31:10-12, 25-30
10 A 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.
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.
NIV 2 Timothy 1:2, 5-
