Mothers Devotionals Day 12 - Know Your Worth
Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.
A man walked into a flower shop on Mother’s Day. He said, “What can I get for three dollars?” The proprietor replied, “I can give you a dozen carnations, or I can give you one rose.” He says, “You mean I can get a dozen carnations for three dollars, but only one rose? How come the roses are just so expensive?”
“Oh, real simple. The scent of a carnation doesn’t last very long. It’s sweet for a moment, but it has no longevity. On the other hand, a rose is known for its ongoing scent. Even when you think it’s dead, it can be crushed, turned into potpourri, and the smell can still continue.
Women are roses. They are valuable. However, to reject being God’s kind of woman is to cheapen your worth. An ungodly woman can be found for a dime a dozen. Ladies, you are roses, you’re expensive. But to reject being God’s kind of woman, you can get them a dime a dozen.
Are you cheapening your worth with the way you live?
Do you realize how valuable you are to God?
