We are getting ready to celebrate the Sunday which is set aside each year to honor our precious mothers. When I think of the influence my godly mother has had on my life, I shudder to think of where I would be without her.
The greatest experience a woman can have is to be a mother and to rear godly children. The Bible says that they will later rise up and call her “blessed”. The Bible speaks of some godly mothers and their influences on their children. Jochobed, the mother of Moses, was a godly mother. Hannah, the mother of Samuel, was a godly mother. Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, was a godly mother. These are just a few.
Often we fail to appreciate the prayer, sacrifice and work our mothers have put into raising children for God. I feel that mothers are the unsung heroes of our land. Many times a mother will not know, until years down the road, the influence she has had on her children. Thank God for mothers. May we let them know that we love and appreciate them for all the acts of kindness that they have shown us each day throughout the year.
Happy Mother's Day!
