INTRODUCTION

Mothers have an incredible influence on their kids

"Of all the people I have ever known, she had the greatest influence on me." Billy Graham

Our culture complicates the mission of Biblical motherhood

God’s word teaches us three truths for mom’s mission in motherhood

3 TRUTHS FOR MOM’S MISSION IN MOTHERHOOD

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:7


#1 LOVE

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
Matthew 22:37-40

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8


#2 WORK

The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

Genesis 2:15

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24


#3 SELF-CONTROL

For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:5-8
