[00:00:00] Jackie: This is from loss to hope with your host, Jackie Stubblefield, I walk alongside you who have lost loved ones, health or home. To a place of hope and joyous. We study in trust and the truth of God's word. This is episode 15, 11 important Bible verses about godly mothers. Do you have a godly mother? There are probably many answers to that question. Have you ever considered what the Bible has to say on this subject?
There are several passages which talk about and others, some good. Some not so good. And this post will be looking at the traits of godly mothers. These verses can give us good examples to look at the Lord wants us through his strength to be the best mom we can.
Uh, godly mother has joy at the birth of her child. [00:01:00] A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come. But when her baby is born, she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. John sixteen, twenty one. What woman is not elated at the birth of her child.
Sure. There are women who circumstances are very difficult. But most in their hearts, love and cherish their children. The best for that child is on their mind. This verse is true. Childbirth is not easy. When all is over joy replaces the pain and we are in all of the new life granted to our care.
Uh, godly mother glorifies. God.
And Mary said my soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God. My savior for he's been [00:02:00] mindful of the uncle state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed. Luke 1 46 to 48. Have you ever thought how you would react to Mary situation? She is very young and about to marry.
God gives her the surprise of her life. She has to have a child. Not in the same manner expected, but by the holy spirit. Her face must have been great to accept God at his word. Think of her fears about how Joseph and her family would react. Instead of lashing out, she glorifies God in his rightful position.
Unlike Mary, we will not experience what it's like to bear the son of God. But we do undergo unexpected trials. We too can be a godly mother by core fighting. Him and setting a good example for [00:03:00] our children.
Sincere faith is a trait of a godly mother. I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother, Lois, and in your mother Eunice. And I'm persuaded now lives in you also second Timothy one five. Paul's talking to Timothy about his sensor, faith in the Lord. He credits Timothy's mother.
And Graham that therefore their face, which influenced him. People do come to the Lord without their mother's influence, but how great it is to know. As a mother you're obedient and faithful about sharing your faith, your children. The Lord blesses us when we're faithful. Reaching out to our children and telling them about a God who loves him as one of those blessing.
Prayer as a quality of a godly mother. And she [00:04:00] said to him, pardon me? My Lord. As surely as you live, I'm the woman who stood here beside you, praying to the Lord. I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me. What I ask of him. So now I give him to the Lord for his whole life will be given over to the Lord and he worshiped the Lord there.
First Samuel 1 26 to 28.
Elkanah had two wives, Peninnah and Hannah. Panino was able to have children and Hannah not. Banana irritated Hannah, because of this and made the situation worse. Each year when they went to the temple. Hannah would ask the Lord for a child. After several years, she bore Samuel. The vs above or her words to Eli the priest.
Hannah is so grateful to the Lord for answering her prayer. She is [00:05:00] dedicating Samuel to serve the Lord in the temple.
She was a godly woman and a godly mother, and she knew the importance of prayer. Staying in contact with the Lord as wisdom and the training of our children. God loves a praying mother.
Uh, godly mother as a teacher. Listen, my son to your father's instructions and do not forsake your mother's teaching. Proverbs one eight. According to expositors Bible commentary, old Testament. The sun. Is also to follow his mother's teaching. This word may be cognit to a verb, meaning. To point or direct. So the idea of teaching might be illustrated as pointing in the right direction.
A mother's role as a teacher is [00:06:00] dual. She has to make sure the child has access to learning both from her and others. She's also instrumental in teaching her child by example. It's not always easy to do, but we have to be aware of this responsibility, trusting the Lord to guide us as the best way and makes us better examples.
I godly. Mother is loving. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children. Titus three, four. It goes without saying that a mother should love her child. This is an admonishment. But it is a quality of a godly mother. Love is patient love is kind. It doesn't envy. It doesn't boast it. Doesn't.
It's not prideful. It does not dishonor others. It's not. Self-seeking. [00:07:00] It's not easily angered. It keeps no records. The wrong love. Does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres first Corinthians 13, four to seven. These verses are for all Christians, but as a good list of attributes of our loving mother.
If we teach these to our children, we will have accomplished a great deal in paving their way and love. Love is shown in many ways. Some are more affectionate while those that are more reserved, have a knack of sharing their children with love. Anyway, love puts others first and is attentive.
Uh, godly mother protects her home. The wise woman builds her house, but where they're on hands, the foolish one terrorist service down Proverbs [00:08:00] 14, one. A wise woman is one who goes to God's word to know what's expected of a mother and wife. Uh, God, leave mothers interested in what is best for her children.
A stable home life encourages stable children. They know what to expect from their mother and her habits. She is geared towards sharing her love in all ways and creating a wholesome, peaceful home LA.
Uh, godly mother is prepared. She is clothed with strength and dignity. She can laugh at the days to come Proverbs 31 25. A virtuous and capable wife is confident and she faces a future. And the Bible to be clothed with something means that it's a part of a person's life and rebuilt itself in that person's character and conduct.
What's her B [00:09:00] study Bible.
Uh, mother, these days wears many hats. She has children homes and many times a child, a job to wrestle with. When she depends on the Lord for her strength, she's better able to handle the load with smile. She loves her children and is willing to do what she needs to do to help.
Uh, godly mother gives good advice. She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue Proverbs 31, 26. This was some comes from her relationship with the Lord. She spends time in God's word and prayer to learn what to do. As she gains wisdom, she's able to help others around her. She is sought out for her advice, especially from her children.
Uh, godly mother is blessed. Her children arise and [00:10:00] call her blessed her husband also. And he praises her. Proverbs 31 28.
What better blessing then to have the love of your children and even better, their respect. This is not an easy task, but with the Lord's help, we can do a good job. Relying on the Lord is the answer to being a godly mother, reading his word can make a real difference in you and your children's lives.
Uh, conclusion. Are you thinking this mother superwoman. Uh, no. What you mean? But the truth is we can be a godly mother to. God is aware of our weaknesses and is willing to help guide us to become a godly mother. This is a woman who loves the Lord and her family. She's eager to do the best she can do.
