Where would we be without moms? This is an age old question with the same answer. What is a mom to you? Is she your stability? Is she your rock? For some, they never knew their moms and for others, their moms have long since past. And yet for others there never seems to be enough time to spend with their mothers.
Proverbs 31 brings to light the beauty and importance that a godly mother is to her family. The Bible says in Proverbs 31: 28-31 ” Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” Billy Gram said, “ Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.” We live in an ever changing world where confusion over genders and roles in the home is ever present and combative at best. The climate of our days says that men and women should have the same rolls and the same jobs. That there is no difference between a man and a woman. I must say, with all clarity ,that there is no one more suited or has so much power and responsibility in the home than a godly mother who puts her faith and trust in God first and foremost. The likes of the power that mother possess to mold the world, is not matched by anything you could imagine.
