Thanking God for Godly Women — Mothers and Grandmothers
The apostle Paul in writing to his understudy Timothy said: 5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:5-7
Sam Crabtree notes that, “Mothers Day is not primarily about being a mother and receiving honour, but thanking God for the mother he gave you, and giving honour. The people giving honour should include all moms. Persons receiving honour as moms should also be giving honour for their God-given moms.” Mothers are a gift from God. Pass it on!
This weekend as Canada celebrates Mother Day from coast to coast may we give thanks with a grateful heart for our mothers and grandmothers. Happy Mother’s Day to all!
