This weekend all over our country, we focus on celebrating mothers. I love what the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, a young man who had great courage and confidence. He wrote, "Timothy, I can see the faith of your mother Eunice and your grandmother Lois in you." See, Timothy's strong belief came through the influence of his mother and grandmother. Those women made an investment that had an impact on Timothy's life.
Whether you are a mother or not, you can encourage, inspire, and invest in the lives of the people around you. Perhaps there are other children in your life—nieces, nephews, or your friends' children—that you can invest in and tell them how important they are. Your words of faith will be a great deposit into their futures. Remember, your words have power. Take time to speak words of faith and blessing to those around you because you never know what can happen when you touch just one life.
To all the mothers who have invested so much in the lives of their children, may you be blessed, strengthened, and empowered by His Spirit and may you know the greatness of the gift that you are to this world.
Happy Mother's Day!
