Being a mother is the most difficult “job” in the world, however:
it is THE MOST REWARDING HONOR to have been given by God to be the keepers of His children; to raise them up in the way they shall go, to teach them according to His Word, to discipline yourself to train your children, to do this 24/7, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, no matter the circumstances life may bring.
The mother is the one who is charged with overcoming whatever challenges come her way. This is not an easy task and so many take it so lightly and even think of it as meaningless. It is SO meaningful because each mother is raising up the next generation of adults who will be leading OUR future. They will be the businessmen, the politicians, the school teachers, et al. She gets ONE DAY a year to be recognized for all that she does.
Children and Parents
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: 3 “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” Ephesians 6:1-3 NKJV
(Psst, dads, there is a reason Mother’s Day comes before Father’s Day…
Just food for thought on that one.)
