2 Timothy 1:5, NIV
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
In the Scripture, we see some amazing mothers who set tremendous examples for us--Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Mary. I love that the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, a young man who had great courage and integrity, that his strong faith came through the influence of his mother and grandmother. I'm sure they had days when they wondered about young Timothy and whether what they were doing mattered. But those women kept investing in him, praying for him, being an example of faith to him, and their impact ended up helping shape his character and led to a lasting legacy.
Remember, whether you are a mother or not, you can have a mother's heart that encourages, inspires, and invests in the lives of the people around you. The heart of a mother is one that nurtures and influences people with love and tenderness. Know that with every hug, every prayer, every encouraging word, and every tear, you are making a difference and impacting future generations. There's nothing on earth like the treasure of a mother's heart.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for putting in my heart this desire to nurture and inspire others' faith, especially within my own family. Thank You for working in my life and causing my faith to be established. Help me to invest in the lives of the people around me and make an impact on future generations. In Jesus' Name, Amen
