One of life’s greatest blessings is to have a godly mother. Mothers carried us inside their wombs for nine months, and endured the painful birthing process. That alone deserves a medal of honor. Nobody can argue that mothers give significantly more of themselves to raising their children on a daily basis than they get credit for. Yet, mothers rarely receive the honor they truly deserve. So everyone, take advantage of this opportunity you have to say thank you to the one person in your life who is responsible for raising you, loving you, protecting you and who made sacrifice after sacrifice for you.
Mothers, when your children were babies, you probably dedicated them to God and as you watch them grow up, remember that God has a plan and a purpose for them. Let your children see your faith in action. Children learn much by observation and they are always watching, probably more than you know. Do all you can to influence your children to live a godly life; pray for them; have compassion, and stand firm on your faith. Countless mothers have learned to let go and let God do a work in their children that only He can do and they have learned that God is faithful.
For those of us who no longer have our mothers here with us, pay honor to them by carrying out the desire of their hearts and that is to serve Jesus Christ all the days of our lives. If you have a godly legacy, keep the torch burning by passing on the faith that has sustained so many before you. Spiritual legacies are eternal and invaluable. Heaven and earth will one day pass away but if you are walking in the salvation and faith of your godly mother, seeing you in Heaven will be her reward.
Mothers, we thank you and honor you and pray God’s blessing upon you!
