Mother’s Day is a day that we celebrate one day out of the year. However, just because we celebrate it only one day it does not mean that our job of motherhood is for only one day. Mothers have a responsibility for a lifetime. Motherhood has become more commercial over the years with the amount of flowers, cards, chocolates, jewelry, and the various Mother’s Day brunches and other social events. The job of motherhood never ends, and the love that you have for your children lasts an eternity. However, I believe that mothers should be celebrated, appreciated, and loved all year round.
Mothers have been given a divine assignment by the Lord to be a mother. Motherhood should never be seen as a chore or a task. I would not trade being a mother for anything in the world. The Bible says those whom the Lord blesses to be mothers should take the responsibility seriously. Children are a gift from the Lord Psalm 127:3-5.
Mother’s day is a time where mothers like to feel appreciated and as a mom have one day that is only for you, especially if you have a little me time free from the children for a couple of hours for you to share by your yourself or in the company of other mothers. When we take on the responsibility of motherhood it is our responsibility to raise “Godly Children,” it is our destiny to uphold the gift that was bestowed upon us by God to teach and train our children.
I believe that it is a noble right and honor to be a mother, and nothing to be taken lightly to have the responsibility to mold a Godly being and not only protect their spirits, but to protect their young souls. When training our children we must be consistent, remember that we are role models, do not let anyone put anything negative into our children, make sure that we talk to our children about their school day, stay in prayer, reward our children when they are doing good deeds.
The role of motherhood changes over a child’s development, however the spiritual foundation and love can never be changed as long as you stay focused on the overall goal of raising “Godly Children,” and making it a point in your daily life. I believe that this goal can be achieved by putting “God” first and letting your children know that he is first above all things and without him nothing can be accomplished in life. I think that it is important to set a foundation at an early age and create an understanding in your children that praying, fasting, and rejoicing are the ingredients for a good recipe towards their spiritual future.
