Blessings of a Godly Mother
Moreover his mother used to make him a little robe, and bring it to him year by year when she came up with her husband
to offer the yearly sacrifice.
1 Samuel 2:19
Hannah’s godly character as a mother is seen as she continued to help supply Samuel’s needs when he served the Lord in the tabernacle. She watched over him. Hannah had an important ministry; it was to take care of the family. Her home was her priority; she took care of her husband and all of her children. Hannah was like the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31, a woman who worked willingly with her hands:
She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. She is like the merchant ships, she brings her food from afar. She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidservants (Proverbs 31:13-15).
She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. She extends her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household is clothed with scarlet (Proverbs 31:19-21).
She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come (Proverbs 31:24-25).
As a godly woman, how can you minister to the many needs of your husband and children? Read through Proverbs 31 today and ask the Lord to continue to shape your godly character as you seek to serve your family.
There is no nobler career than that of motherhood at its best.
