A Tribute to Moms
Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs you can have. You wear many hats. Some days you are a life coach, personal chef, maid, chauffeur, and best friend wrapped up all in one! While mothers love their children and would do anything out of love for them, it is easy to get tired and worn out in the midst of day-to-day life. Being a mom can be a thankless job. The answers don’t always come easy. And the to-do lists never seem to end. Though it may be hard is it such a blessing!
Whether you are feeling encouraged, tired, joyful, or worn out in your role as a mother remember that you have been entrusted with the greatest blessing that God has given. As a mother, there can be tough days when you feel unnoticed. Be encouraged by the love of those around you and by God’s own love for you.We may not always understand how God is working around us. In Matthew 15, we see that a mother’s faith can lead the way to divine mercy.
Proverbs 31 offers instruction on how to live as a wise mother and wife in the midst of it all. Proverbs 3:15- 19 “She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.”
A mother’s love for her children is tender and compassionate. Through Scripture, we can see that God loves us the same way. A mother’s influence affects her children’s faith. One of the most powerful things a mother can do is to lift up her children to the Lord in prayer. While being a mom is not always easy, it is one of the greatest blessings God can give. And to walk alongside your children as they grow requires faith, love, and wisdom that only God can provide. May God refresh, refocus, and renew you as you seek to be a mother that glorifies him. One Proclamation to the World states: “Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.”
Proverbs 31:28 “Her children arise up and call her blessed” Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children. Most of the noble characters and fine leaders of history have had good, God-fearing mothers. We are told that George Washington’s mother was pious, and that Sir Walter Scott’s mother was a lover of poetry and music. On the other hand, we are told that Nero’s mother was a murderess and that the dissolute Lord Byron’s mother was a proud and violent woman. The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured. They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness, and industry.
Be the kind of mother that inspires your child to be the next Entrepreneur. Be the kind of mother that teaches positive thinking to grow positive minds. Be the kind of mother that prays so that the child will know how to pray. Be the kind of mother who loves unconditionally so that the child will learn mercy. Be the kind of mother that the child will grow to be!
