Mothers are truly a gift from God in so many ways. I’ve never met anyone like a Godly mother who loves her children and teaches them the way of the Lord. Mothers are beautifully made beings and genuinely reflect the love of Christ when they are seeking His glory above all else. Here are 3 things that make up a Godly mother and allow her children to call her blessed (Proverbs 31:28).
1. A servant’s heart.
Godly women who are striving to become mothers one day or are already mothers are servants at heart. These moms know how to take care of a family and provide for the needs inside her home. It goes way beyond cooking and cleaning and a mom with a servant’s heart can genuinely shine the love of Christ to all she meets. Proverbs 31:20-21 says, “She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy.” Mothers don’t just open their hearts to their own family, but they are oftentimes opening their hearts to those that don’t have a home, are less fortunate, or just need love.
2. Moms are the epitome of unconditional love, right behind Jesus, that is.
When Jesus went to the cross, His act of love was selfless and unconditional. A godly mother can and will oftentimes reflect that same sacrificial, unconditional love in their everyday lives. Think back to a time where you did not deserve love and try to remember who was standing there, still loving you. That’s right. Probably your mom. Godly mothers love even when love is not deserving. Godly mothers lead in a way that points to the unconditional love and need of Christ. They reflect the true heart of Christ and never give up on those they love.
3. Godly mothers also teach their children the true ways of the Lord.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) It is not uncommon to see mothers and even fathers in this era not living out this verse; however, a true woman of the Lord will guard her children and raise them up to be Godly servants and disciples. A mother’s discipline is always tough, but her correction and teaching lead to the way of right living.
Mothers are angels sent from above. They love us unconditionally, they teach us the right ways and how to be Godly men and women. There’s just nothing quite like a “mama” who loves the Lord. For those that grew up with a Godly mother or mother figure in your life, consider yourself blessed. The guidance, love, wisdom, and heart of a mother are like none other.
