The Greatest Good!

My kiddos love the movie "The Incredibles". A cute movie about a family of superheros in hiding. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the character Frozone is asking his wife where his super suit is, because the city is under attack and he is going to help. She begins to respond to his questions with attitude and basically is not going to tell him because they have dinner plans. He then tells her that "it is for the greater good of man kind" which then she replies "I am your wife! I am the greatest good you are ever gonna get!"
Of course there are many things I can talk about in regards to that segment but I want to focus on the greatest good part!
I found the picture above at a web page for a mosaic heart. I know nothing about that page but I love the scripture.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
We were created by him for GOOD WORKS. God has prepared us as wives and mothers to be the greatest good for our family. In the book Excellent Wife author Martha Peace writes "the works that God has prepared for you to do include not only what you do in your relationship with your husband, but also your heart's motives or attitude." Her point is that we need to focus on what we as a wife are suppose to be doing and not what are husbands are suppose to be doing". You see we need to be focusing on being "the greatest good" aside from Christ, that our families get! God has equipped us to do good works. The scripture says that He prepared beforehand. Before we said "I DO" he was preparing us to be the wives He requires of us. We need to make sure that; without boasting, we are walking in those works. And I say "without boasting" because it is not something we need to do to  prove we are the greatest good. its not something we need to say to our husbands as in the movie. But it is something we want our husbands to feel & know. As Martha says, Its all about your heart's motives & desires.I desire to be the best wife & mother. With God's help and knowing that he has prepared us, we can do good works for our families!
God Bless
