Now let there be no doubt concerning this day.  It is truly a very special day for all of us.  We pause and honor our Mothers for their labor of love, because God wants to teach us things we have no knowledge of concerning the Mothers of the world.  Today, we thank God for all of our Mothers, good, bad are indifferent.  We all are here today, because of God’s love for us and the love our Mothers had in the labor of pain for us as she gave birth to each of us, nurtured us, loved us and shared us with the world.  What a true blessing it is to just pause and thank all you Mothers out there for loving us, even if no one else ever does, and perhaps we have in some way been a disappointment to you, your love and prayers continue to cover us.

Being a mother is a very important role that the Lord chooses to give to many women. A Christian mother is told to love her children (Titus 2:4-5), in part so that she does not bring reproach on the Lord and on the Savior whose name she bears.

Children are a gift from the Lord (Psalm 127:3-5). In Titus 2:4, the Greek word philoteknos appears in reference to mothers loving their children. This word represents a special kind of “mother love.” The idea that flows out of this word is that of caring for our children, nurturing them, affectionately embracing them, meeting their needs, and tenderly befriending each one as a unique gift from the hand of God.

Now let us look closely at Several things that are commanded of Christian mothers in God’s Word, and learn to apply them in our daily lives as we rear our children.

Availability – morning, noon, and night (Deuteronomy 6:6-7),  This word is key to helping us unlock many doors in helping us to raised Godly Children.

Involvement – interacting, discussing, thinking, and processing life together (Ephesians 6:4), as we have discovered, the lack of involvement in the daily lives of our children have put much stress on our families and the community at large.  The largest building program in America today is our government building more and more prisons to house our children because of the lack of our involvement in their lives.

Teaching – the Scriptures and a biblical worldview (Psalm 78:5-6Deuteronomy 4:10Ephesians 6:4), our job is to teach our children the word of God.  Fill their minds with truth and keep them away from the streets and the gangs that are teaching them the wrong way of living.

Training – helping a child to develop skills and discover his/her strengths. (Proverbs 22:6) and spiritual gifts (Romans 12:3-8 and 1 Corinthians 12), learn that in reality that we are the first coach that our children will ever come in contact with.  Use your talents to train your children to be the best they can be.

Discipline – teaching the fear of the Lord, drawing the line consistently, and lovingly firmly, (Ephesians 6:4Hebrews 12:5-11Proverbs 13:2419:1822:1523:13-1429:15-17) this is a job that God did not give to the government, police are the gangs, but a job that He gave to each one of us and we must stop fearing our children and accept the challenges that we are confronted with and provide our children with proper discipline in order that they will walk in the pathway of God and not the evil one.

Nurture – providing an environment of constant verbal support, freedom to fail, acceptance, affection and unconditional love (Titus 2:42 Timothy 1:7Ephesians 4:29-325:1-2Galatians 5:221 Peter 3:8-9)

Modeling with Integrity – living what you say, being a model from which a child can learn by “catching” the essence of godly living (Deuteronomy 4:91523Proverbs 10:911:3Psalm 37:1837).

The Bible never states that every woman should be a mother. However, it does say that those whom the Lord blesses to be mothers should take the responsibility seriously. Mothers have a unique and crucial role in the lives of their children. Motherhood is not a chore or unpleasant task. Just as a mother bears a child during pregnancy, and just as a mother feeds and cares for a child during infancy, so mothers also play an ongoing role in the lives of their children, whether they are adolescents, teenagers, young adults, or even adults with children of their own. While the role of motherhood must change and develop, the love, care, nurture, and encouragement a mother gives should never cease.
