Godly Woman

“The modern challenge to motherhood is the eternal challenge---- That of being a Godly woman. This very phrase sounds strange in our ears. We never hear it now. We hear about every other type of women:

Beautiful women
Smart women
Sophisticated women
Career women
Talented women
Divorced women

But so seldom do we ever hear of a Godly woman- or of a Godly man either, for that matter. I believe women come nearer to their God given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife, than to be Miss America. It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultra-modern. The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs more who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct.”
~Peter Marshall
