Welcome to “In His Praise!”
Today is Mother’s Day — a special day to remember those we call Mom, Grandmom, Auntie, or just friend. These women have a special place in the hearts and lives of their children. They care for, provide for, protect and nuture those entrusted to them. A good mother is a blessing.
A faithful Christian mother is a special blessing. Paul reminded Timothy of this positive influence when he mentioned in 2 Timothy about the faith of Lois and Eunice, Timothy’s grandmother and mother. God created women to be mothers. In fact the first mother, Eve, was given that name , “because she would become the mother of all living things.” (Genesis 3:20) Jesus even uses an example of motherly love and protection for God’s children in Matthew 23:37b – “how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings…”
What a wonderful blessing to be called Mother! What an important privilege it is to be that faithful, Godly influence in our children’s lives!
We are thankful for these blessings and for a God that loves us even more.
