Scriptures: Psalms 113:1-9
The Bible gives us many examples of women who were positive mothers and leaders. Today we look at four mothers in the Bible who we can learn from, not just as mothers, but as
1) Jochebed: Jochebed was Moses's mother who protected him, she was the protective mother. Jochebed took great risk to protect her child, but his legacy was worth her efforts. She protected her Moses: physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually. Jochebed was a
woman of courage who inspires us a Christians to protect those we desire to see
blossom in Christ and be courageous to fight for their souls.
2) Hannah- Hannah was Samuel's mother: the supportive
mother. Hannah desired a son from the Lord and then supported his work for the
Lord. Hannah gave her child to the work of the church. God answers prayer
concering children and it should be our desire to see the children in our lives
find God's will. Hannah was a woman of prayer and its important for us all to
seek God's face for the lives of others He has placed around
3) Eunice- Eunice was Timothy's mother: the instructive mother. She taught her son unfeigned faith, or faith that was not easily shaken. We need to teach our children faith and support each other in the growth of our faith. Eunice was considered a woman of faith, as Christians we need to desire more faith in our lives.
4) Mary- Mary was the mother of Jesus and she was the loyal mother. Mary went
through many trials, being accused of adultery and watching her own son die on
the cross, yet she never gave up. She stood at the cross of Jesus and showed no
shame. Mary was a woman of loyalty, commitment, courage, prayer and faith.
