Daughters of Strength (Cornerstones)
Psalm 144:12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; and that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
Daughters are likened unto corner stones which are not pictures of weakness! They are descriptions of STRENGTH!
Christian fathers and mothers, we must reject the image that the World has placed in our minds of Christian womanhood that is some form of abusive slavery fit only for weak minded women. It is an absolute lie that a woman who is a Godly keeper at home is weak or abused.
The Christian woman, rightly understood, is to be one who is raised to be as a cornerstone which is not an insignificant part of a building, but it is distinctly set apart as a tool for building the home or building upon. In fact, we find in Scripture, Christ referred to as the Cornerstone of the Church. This is vitally important for the church, as is the significance of a woman in the future building of a new home when she is married.
The key to a woman’s great strength is in the primary place where her strength is to be executed, which is the home.
I beg of you not to under estimate the strength that you have to impact your family and the people around you through a well ordered home and family.
