The Influence of a Mother

By   •   May 8   •   Topics: ,

Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children. Someone has said, “Like mother, like children.” Most of the noble characters and fine leaders of history have had good, God-fearing mothers. We are told that George Washington’s mother was pious, and that Sir Walter Scott’s mother was a lover of poetry and music. On the other hand, we are told that Nero’s mother was a murderess and that the dissolute Lord Byron’s mother was a proud and violent woman. The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured. They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness, and industry.

Read Billy Graham’s tribute to his mother and the lessons she taught him.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, Lord, for mothers who love You. Their influence is felt around the world.

    I am so encouraged. Sometimes I really struggle with whether God sees my efforts in trying to maintain sanity at home.

    If you were fortunate enough to have a God fearing ,Christian mother , follow her lead. If you were as fortunate and had a non-Christian/worldly mother……..follow God’s lead. Set a Godly example for your children.
