Happy Mother's Day

A Godly Mother

Being a mom is one of the highest callings of womanhood. She protects, cares for, and loves her children more than any other person in the world could.

She nurtures and protects. If you want to get her mad, just mess with her children. She is always there morning and night. A godly mother teaches them fear of and reverence for the Lord.  She helps her children become strong and to learn all the skills they need when they become adults.

In Proverbs 22:6 we find that she trains up a child the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Her job never ends. It only moves into different phases of life. When they are infants, they rely on her for the basic necessities of life.  She makes sure they have food to eat, a bed for rest, and a safe place to grow.

When they reach school age, she must let go a little.  They feed themselves and take care of their needs. They still need guidance and assurance of her love as they run off to explore their little section of the universe. This is when the discussions on values become more important.  A godly mother reads the Bible and helps her children hide the words in their hearts.

As teens, they become more independent and make decisions about careers, jobs and relationships. They need her guidance more than ever before.
It is never too late to become a godly mother.  Just start where you are and go from there. God accepts us the way we are and can use us at any time.

Wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all of you women around the world. Whether you have children of your own, or are caring for a grandchild or someone else’s child, you deserve recognition and praise.
