How are children a blessing to mothers…

Mother’s: Called to bring remembrance to our faith…
"...I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also......from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." (2 Timothy 1:5; 3:15).
Let’s take a moment to give thanks to God for all that we have learned from our mothers.
First let me say thank you and welcome this morning to our dearest Mother’s in our congregation and community today.
You have indeed been crafted as a very special and blessed vessel of Christ, and we rejoice that we have the privilege of walking with you today and each day that you grace us with your presence. Let us look at some Godly advise for mother’s today…
Paul reminded Timothy of his great privilege that he had been given.
A mother and grandmother devoted to God and the things of God.
Will this be something that your children and others around you will be saying in the next 10, 20 or 30 years?
I pray it will be, it’s what God has set aside for you, if you seek to be a Godly mother.
Timothy’s mother and grandmother, Eunice and Lois were staunch believers who were faithful to God’s Word, to the greatest extent of their effort.
As was the case in Timothy’s lifetime, it is still the key in any healthy family: faithfulness to God’s Word every day.
Timothy’s mother and grandmother had taught Timothy the Scriptures from earliest childhood.
