Godly Mother

I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 2 Timothy 1:5 

God comforts us as like a mother comforts her child. We can see many Godly mothers recorded in bible, one of them is Eunice, she is Timothy’s mother. Historians recorded that Timothy’s dad was a greek merchant who often travels on business, sure he would not have got much chance to spend time with Timothy. But, bible recorded about Eunice, his mother who raised Timothy in faith and Godly way. Its amazing to see that the Faith has been passed on to next generation as Lois raised her daughter Eunice in Faith and Eunice raised Timothy in faith.

Another good example is Jochebed, Moses’ mother in the old covenant, Jochebed meaning “glory of Jehovah”. Pharaoh commanded that all newly-born Hebrew boys be thrown into river nile because they were outnumbering Egyptians. We can see Jochebed’s courage and trust in God as she protected her son Moses and want him to live for the “glory to God”! She did not have much time to live with Moses but during the short time sure she had influenced Moses in a positive way for the glory of God!  

One of the reason behind marriage and why God gives children is recorded in Malachi 2:15 “Didn’t the LORD make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union.” Yes, God’s Word says, train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 You may be a mother reading this message, its God’s will for you to raise your children in Godly way and we have been surrounded by great clouds of witnesses like Lois, Eunice and Jochebed. Its not just mother’s responsibility, but for both father and mother. Always keep your children in prayers! God bless you!
