2 Timothy 1:5
…as I think of your strong faith that was passed down through your family line. It began with your grandmother Lois, who passed it on to your dear mother, Eunice. And it’s clear that you too are following in the footsteps of their godly example.
The greatest decision that any mother can make for her children is to live for God in front of them! As you see in the passage above, Paul is commending Timothy for his sincere faith in God. As he also pointed out, this sincere faith did not just come out of the sky. It started with a grandmother who sold out to God. There was a young lady who watched this grandmother walk with God. She grew up and had her own child. Her own child, Timothy, watched her as he grew up. Now, Timothy is embarking on a great and mighty plan of God for his own life. This didn’t just happen. Timothy had godly examples in his life that he watched as he grew up. Now he was ready to step out for God!
Mothers, your children are watching you today! Yes, you are being pulled seemingly every which way. Many things you do for your children are necessary and have there place, but don’t forget what’s most important! Make sure that when they hear you talk and see you walk that they see a woman who is sold out to God! There is nothing greater that you can do for your children!
I encourage each mother today not to be moved by the expectations and demands this world puts on you, but to be molded and shaped by the Word of God. You can and will make a difference!
