This Mother's Day we examine the high calling of motherhood. Mothers contribute to the flourishing of their family in incalculable ways. Their work knows no bounds, their competencies no limits. And their greatest responsibility, their most loving and faithful act to their children, is to model and teach a big and glorious view of God.
On this Mother's Day we take time to honor mothers and motherhood. God's Word informs us of what it means to be a wise and praiseworthy wife and mother. Proverbs 31 is a full length portrait of godly wife and mother. The role and importance of a mother cannot be overstated. Mothers are the first teachers in the home and should teach Godly wisdom to her children as they work with diligence to care for all in the home.
In the book of Ruth we have an amazing story revealing the kindness of God and pointing to his redemptive work. Along the way we are provided with wonderful examples of a daughter honoring her mother and a mother caring for her daughter.
The value and significance of motherhood, while under attack in our culture, cannot be overstated. The Bible repeatedly speaks to the meaning and vision of motherhood. Indeed, biblically minded mothers impact eternity.
Women and motherhood are under attack in our culture and as a result, every facet of society and family suffers. Contrary to modern cultural opinion, motherhood is a high calling and worthy of praise. Today we look at Proverbs 31 and learn how biblical motherhood is Christlike and hence, brings glory to Christ.
