Mother's Day is around the corner. As children, everyone may be thinking of what kind of gifts to buy for their mothers to thank them for their many years of parenting. Good TV posted a message on Facebook recently to encourage everyone to think about the mothers in the Bible as Mother's Day is approaching.
Good TV also shared an episode of "Prayer Warriors" from 2014, in which Pastor Liu Xiaoting (Pastor Liu "the third") preached a message related to the prophet Samuel's mother.
Two typical mothers in the Bible are Moses' mother and Samuel's mother. Each of them cultivated excellent children who were greatly used by God even in their own difficult situations.
In this era, the role of a mother is very important. This role also faces more and more challenges. Under the pressure of life and work, a mother needs to be able to regulate her heart and not be defeated by negative and chaotic thoughts or sudden emotions. There are mothers who cannot stay by their children's side for whatever reasons. They are worried that their children would be negatively influenced by their environment.
When we look at the Bible, we know that devoted children come from devoted mothers. The words that come from a mother have a great influence on the child. Mothers should learn to pray, respect God, know when to lend a helping hand, when to step back in silence and entrust their children to God.
Finally, ask God to give mothers wisdom and cultivate children who carry out God's mission and do not follow the customs of this world.
