In our 'throw away' world many things aren't built to last any more. It is as if we only expect them to give us a limited life-span. Appliances, vehicles, clothes, mobile devices, computers and the like. Sadly, this same attitude has moved into other avenues of our communities and this has had a negative impact on our relationships and faith.
As we come to the end of our reflection on the Proverbs, the writer reminds us that a person who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. The body ages, material possessions lose their appeal, but the person who honours God will be remembered.
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman fears the Lord will be greatly praised." - Proverbs 31:30
“Remember to take time for God—it is life’s only lasting investment.”
