A GODLY MOTHER!
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised (Proverbs 31:30).
Today happens to be Mother’s Day; a day set aside worldwide to celebrate the dignity of motherhood to human race. The dignity of motherhood can never be over emphasized. Without godly mothers, the society will suffer a great set back. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Therefore, it is the duty of every Christian to take note of the fact that physical beauty is ephemeral and can never be equated to the inner beauty of the heart. Beauty cannot make a godly mother.
A godly mother has reverence and fear for the Lord. She brings up and impacts the fear of the Lord into the lives of her children. That is why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:5, “When I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.” The fear of God and godly up-bringing can be impacted and inherited from one generation to another through the process of motherhood. Therefore, it is the duty of every Christian mother to impact the fear of God into the lives of her children forever.
Apostle Peter admonished mothers in his time not to be crazy about the outward beautification of the body, but the inner beauty of the heart with the fear of God. That is the reason why he said in 1 Peter 3:4 thus, “Rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” Of course, the inner beauty of a godly mother is very precious to God and as well contagious to human race. Take note of the fact that outward beauty is deceitful and ephemeral. Happy Mother’s Day!
Daily Tip: A Christian mother is expected to have the fear of God which is the inner beauty of the heart and impact such into the lives of her children forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands (1 Peter 3:5).
