Thought for the Week from Mothers Union Australia
Sunday 28 February 2021
Women of influence
Lord Jesus, think on me, Amid the battle’s strife;
In all my pain and misery Be thou my health and life. NEH 70
Mary Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman 200 years ago and became the Mother of Feminism. Many abused and ill-treated women as well as the talented, but thwarted, would want their right to a fulfilled life vindicated and plead to the Lord Jesus for health and life. All women, great and small, influence those around them for good or ill.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her a share in the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the city gates. Proverbs 31: 30-31
It is the ministry of Mothers’ Union members and all Christian women to offer nurture and encouragement wherever possible. As Sheran, world-wide president, points out, ‘the work of MU … is bringing lasting transformation’.
