Motherhood ( A Noble Ministry)
A mother is one who bears and/or rears children. Mothers are to be respected and obeyed. More than a job or responsibility, mothering is ministry. Most assuredly it takes work! It means sacrifice. Children do not come off of an assembly line, nor are they the by-product of an impersonal biological process; they are to be lovingly nurtured by their mothers( 2 TIM. 1:3-5). Mothers divide time among their children but multiply their love for all their children. To this they add the care of the home, often subtracting many extras in order to do so.
When Isaiah the prophet searched for an illustration of God's constant love for His people, the best example he could find was a new baby's mother(Is. 49:15). Mothers have enduring love that even the most trying circumstances or rebellious child cannot dim. As a mother lets go of her own life for the sake of her child, she is reminded of the depth and height and breadth of God's love for her, and in a unique way she experiences the true joy of motherhood. This is a truth that will transform any suffering or sacrifice into reward and joy (1 John 3:16).
God has a plan for mothers( EX. 2:1-10). The high calling is an all consuming task(Deut. 6:6-7): in the morning you can read God's Word to your child; at mealtime you are to give attention to meeting physical needs; as you are outside, you can teach your child about the beauty of creation, at bedtime you can pray for your child and give assurance. The reward is worth the effort(Prov. 31:28).
Godly mothers are the nation's greatest treasure, the Lord's helpers, and the most blessed among women(2 Kin. 4).
