Welcome to the month of May! In this edition, I will be unveiling to mothers two main keys to effectively carry out their roles to their children.
Keys to Effectively Carry out your Role as a Mother
The first key is The Word of God. It is your responsibility to impart the light of God’s Word into your children. The Bible says: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105). Once light gains access to your children, no matter where they find themselves on earth, it becomes impossible for darkness to overcome them. When the light shines in them, they will become masters of darkness. God’s Word says: wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy Word (Palm 119:9). Spend time teaching your children the Word of God. If they are too small to read, you can read to their hearing. You can also use picture books, drama, etc. If they are too small to read, you can read to their hearing. You can also use picture books, drama, etc. Do whatever is within your power to sow the good seed of God’s Word in them. Invest in good Bibles, Christian literature, and audio and videotapes. As such, you are nurturing them in the way of the Lord and sowing a good seed that will bring in a tremendous harvest tomorrow.
The second key is Love and Control. Every child wants and needs to be loved, but at the same time, they need to be corrected and directed correctly. By control, I don’t mean turning your child into a puppet, I mean being able to restrain them and put a check on certain excesses in their lives by enforcing discipline. Love and control both go hand in hand in producing godliness in children. Express generosity to your children in words of praise and actions. Let your children be assured of your love, in that way, it will be easy to control them. A child that you do not love, you will not be able to control, and a child that you do not control, you cannot claim to love.
However, to effectively cultivate these roles, you need to be saved. If you are not born again, please say this prayer of faith: Dear Lord, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Now, I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave or forsake you. With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace in Jesus’ name! Please write or call to share your testimonies with me through firstname.lastname@example.org OR 08141320204
