Your Role As A Mother To Your Children!

Dear Reader,

Welcome to yet another time of refreshing on this column. The first month of the second half of this year has rolled by, and we are in the second month already.  It shall be for you a month of great happenings.  I believe that by the grace of God, you shall be blessed as you come along with me this month on this new topic – Your Role As A Mother To Your Children.

Although it is true that God commanded man to multiply and replenish the earth, His cardinal reason for childbearing is to raise godly seeds unto Himself. However, for God to have godly seeds, there must first be godly parents because like begets like.

The womb and breasts are two special attributes, which link women to their children. Children are nurtured in their mother’s wombs and fed from their breasts. This is an advantage and privilege of motherhood that fathers don’t have.  What a wonder of womanhood!

There’s a purpose for each child and as a mother, you have the responsibility of locating and training them in it.  That’s why God’s Word says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). The children of today are the adults of tomorrow; they constitute the future generation.

To the mothers, the Bible says: A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother (Proverbs 10:1).  Another scripture says: The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame (Proverbs 29:15).

These scriptures are addressed directly to mothers.  Children who are brought up by their fathers alone (due to whatever reason), have a masculine outlook to life, even if they are girls.  I believe that though child training is a joint responsibility of parents, mothers have a greater share of the responsibility. This is so because, among other things, mothers have a lot of influence over their children.

Mothers add a graceful touch to the lives of their children. So, for every mother who doesn’t want to be brought to shame, you must of necessity realise your role to your children, and do it with all sense of responsibility.

Fulfilling your covenant role as a mother to your children requires you having Christ resident in you. You do this by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Saviour and Lord. That is what being born again is all about.  If you are not born again, and you are ready to give your life to Christ now, say this prayer of faith: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

If you prayed this simple prayer, you are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).

Congratulations! You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
