Proverbs 31:1-9
Momma Always Said...

Phone lines will be jammed and restaurants will be packed today. Why? People are honoring their mother and the enormous impact she has on their lives. One of the greatest sources of influence is the common sense instruction we receive from Moms. Today's Scripture passage records some ancient words of instruction to an otherwise unknown king named Lemuel by the Queen Mother. Although these words are ancient in time, they are pertinent to life in the 21st century. There are three large life lessons.

1. Live purely

2. Live soberly

3. Live compassionately
