Let me be one of the first to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! I know days like this can be hard for some who have lost mothers, for some who have difficult relationships with mothers or for a variety of reasons that can make this day difficult. We also want to take time to celebrate those women who have given their lives to raise godly children. Tara once had a magnet that said something to the effect of: Mothers of boys work from son up to son down. How true that is. All the washing, doctoring, counseling, teaching, cooking, ect. that goes into raising godly children. You might wonder if it is worth it somedays. Let me encourage you that it is. Thank you to all you mothers out there.

I am reminded of Eunice (the mother of Timothy) and Lois (the grandmother of Timothy) (2 Timothy 1:5). There is some truth in the old saying that the one that rocks the cradle rules the world. Lois had rocked the cradle of Eunice, teaching her about God and Eunice had rocked the cradle of Timothy, teaching him about God. That had become a foundation in this young man's life that he had built on to become the man Paul describes in 1 Corinthians 4:17 as a beloved and faithful child of the Lord. Were there days Lois wondered if it was all worth it? Maybe. Were there days Eunice wondered if it was all worth it? Maybe. Do you not think if they read 1 Corinthians 4:17, they would have known it was? Or more importantly for them to hear the words from Matthew 25:23 spoken to Timothy, well done, good and faithful slave. There will be no questions of if it was worth it when spending eternity with your children.
