Let me reflect with you on the influence of our mothers. I will make only two points in this blog; remind all of us to thank the Lord for the mother He gave us, and to encourage current mothers, mothers-to-be and women who want to be mothers. That is a tall order in 300 words or less.
It does not matter whether the memories of your mother are wonderful or of another character, the fact that God brought you into the world through a unique person, your mother, is cause for gratitude. No matter what degree of godly qualities she taught you, you are responsible to take what she gave you and do even better for the next generation by looking at the biblical models.
Timothy’s mother, a believing Jew, raised him to have an honorable reputation (Acts 16:1). From this beginning, Paul wanted to mentor Timothy into a man of God, useable anywhere in the Church. This is what you can do as a mother. Let God use your faith in Jesus to become the fountain from which the Church is equipped with God-fearing men and women who serve with honor and dignity.
You may not be a mother yet. Now is the time to think and practice what any godly mother will teach her children. When they come, you will have already made critical decisions that will impact the next generation. “A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs 31:30).
For women who want to be a mother and God has not made that possible, take this same principle and apply it to yourself. Never underestimate the influence of a woman who fears the Lord and teaches His truth. Read Isaiah 54 and you will see that God multiplies children to those who make God their husband and trust that He will always do what is right for you.
