Proverbs 31:28

Proverbs 31:28  Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her;

How can we get to the place where our children 'call her blessed' as the NIV states and we are praised by our husbands.  Today's lesson is one of humility.  It states "we should be much more concerned about the qualtity of our lives and our love for our children (and loving our husband) than we are about receiving praise. 

Proverbs 22:6 Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.

Titus 2:4 These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children,

So forget about the praise for doing what you do, you probably aren't going to get it anyways - at least not in the moments when you think you need it!  Instead focus on teaching your children biblical principles and values and learn how to love your husband and your children.
