Are Godly Mothers Necessary Today?

God has assigned mothers a role and responsibility in the structure of a family. Even though God is the author of life (Job 1:21; Psalm 139:13), He uses the woman to be the vessel of the delivery of life, and gives the woman (the mother) the ability to care for, nurture and raise up the child with instruction and training. Being a mother is a position of great privilege, but also one of great responsibility. According to Scripture, there are two types of mothers: godly mothers and ungodly mothers. Godly mothers follow the Lord God with obedience and reverence and imparts this wisdom and knowledge continually to her children (Deuteronomy 6:6-9). Ungodly mothers will silence the voice of God in their own home and live lives in conflict of God’s will and His Word (1 Kings 18:4, 13). It is mothers who build families and, as our mothers are successful in their walk and obedience will help our nation to grow and prosper. Mothers are to remain persistent in the prayers for their children (Luke 11:9-10). In addition, mothers are to promote worshiping God in the lives of their children and with their own actions. God’s Word is the protection and covering for our children, and mothers help provide the foundational training for their children (Proverbs 22:6). In stark contrast, it was Jezebel’s negative influence that affected her own daughter, Athaliah, who continued the ungodly practices of her mother with her own children (2 Chronicles 24:7). A mother should never use her children for selfish motivation or reasoning (Mark 6:21-29). Protect your children from the the negative influence of today’s society and remain strong in courage and wisdom when following the Lord through our Savior Jesus Christ, and their children will follow in reverence and obedience to God (2 Chronicles 27:1-2; 2 Timothy 1:4-7). God provides mothers, who believe in and trust God, and when they humble themselves before God, a spirit of power and the ability to succeed. “For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. (2 Timothy 1:7). In this power, godly mothers can build godly character into their children for today and for generations to come.
