I was going to get an ultrasound to find out the due date of my second child. As I sat in the waiting room, thumbing through a woman’s health magazine, I couldn’t help but notice the other people come in and out.
A young, married couple was looking at pictures of their new little one that they were going to have very soon. Another woman in her fifties sat rigidly, waiting to have a mammogram. But the woman that came in next caught my attention.

"Panning for Gold" Proverbs 31 Study Series Part 14
This week we took a field trip to an aquarium to observe the marvelous fish God created. In a large tank, I oohed and ahhed at many beautifully colored exotic fish and at the sharks, sting rays, and the giant turtle. The expert biologist who was answering questions came around to talk to us. She told us her favorite fish was this tiny little three inch plain looking fish. I was shocked at first. Then she told us why. It turns out that little fish was loved by all in the tank because he would clean all the parasites off of the other fish and groom them. He was such a good little helper that he would even swim in and out of their gills, cleaning and making the fish look good and stay healthy all over. While I can’t even remember the name of the plain little fish, I certainly remember how good he made the others in the tank look. Like the biologist, I decided that I liked that plain little fish too and would like to be like him, helping others and making them better by his presence. That plain little fish reminds me of the Virtuous Woman.
As we have peered into the life of the Virtuous Woman in Proverbs 31, we have observed her many noble character qualities mentioned and have sought to emulate them. Now, however, as we come to verse 23, we find a stark change--the woman’s husband’s position and place are emphasized rather than hers.
Proverbs 31:23 says, “Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.”

Long was the road He walked,
Heavy the cross He bore,
Piercing the nails that tore,
Yet greater, His love.

The Easter Story...No story can be more agonizing, yet it is the sweetest story of all.
It is the story of my redemption. It is the story of the Servant-King, the God-Man, Who
loved me first and made His soul an offering for my wretched sin. Hallelujah! What a Savior!

My parents suggested this topic, evangelism, as a good way that we can work with children to advance God’s kingdom. How does evangelism tie in with working with children? Encourage your siblings to witness (by both your words and example). Many people are more receptive to children than to adults. Also, is it ever too early to form habits of obedience to God?
