Someone said, “A mother’s lap is the best place form which to launch a life”. That is so true. Birth is just the beginning and what happens after that is determined by many factors, non of which are as important as the mother’s ministry. There is simply no way to describe the importance of godly mothers.
Charles Spurgeon once said of his mother, “I cannot tell how much I owe to the prayers of my good mother. I remember her once praying, ‘Now Lord, if my children go on in sin it will not be from ignorance that they perish, and my soul must bear swift witness against them at the day of judgment if they lay not hold on Christ and claim Him as their personal Savior.’” Obviously that was a woman who did her job well.
As we celebrate and honor our mothers today, we need to consider the importance of mothers in a child’s life. Mothers are an important part of every child’s life. While a child needs the protection and provision of a father, they also need the loving compassion of a mother–no one can take her place! Mothers often have greater impacts on their children than any other person. The godly mother deserves all the honor and praise that we can give her.It is my heart-felt prayer that each mother will have a most blessed Mother’s Day. God bless you!
