Today is our last day of adding pearls to our strand of necklace. Today we are looking at the pearls Attains, Fear of the Lord and Fruit Bearing found in the final verses in Proverbs 31.
“Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.”
Attains…we need to distinguish ourselves as being the best wife and mother! Let’s not be mediocre! Let’s go the extra mile!
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”
Fear of the Lord…we all know youth is temporary. We are first and foremost a spiritual being who loves the Lord with all our heart. We want to please God with our every breath. We use the gifts He has given us for His glory. We know that our inner beauty comes from our deep relationship with the Lord. When the Lord is given the honor of our hearts, His glory will shine all over us!
“Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
Fruit Bearing…the gates of heaven will one day be opened to each believing woman. Our main goal in life is to one day be standing before our Lord and Savior with our husbands and children by our sides hearing, “Well done thou good and faithful Servant.” The only thing we can bring with us to heaven are our loved ones and those we reach for the Lord, everything else is temporary.
A Godly, virtuous life will one day be honored.
How long will your necklace be when you stand before the Lord? Will you be holding a single pearl, a bracelet or a necklace? I hope to be standing before my Lord one day with a necklace full of pearls…join me!

Originally from Queens, NY, Lois now calls northeastern PA home. You can find her blogging over at Walking on Sunshine where she shares a little of her life, but more importantly what’s for dinner at her house tonight.
