What Are the Qualities of a Godly Mother?
What does it take to be a godly mother and what do they look like? Allow me to share with you some qualities a godly mother will possess.
A godly mother prays often.
From the first two children ever born until now, it is has never been easy to raise kids. If you are going to be a godly mother, then prayer must be essential to your life. Possibly now more than ever before we need mothers and fathers who make prayer the most important aspect of their lives. It takes supernatural wisdom in this hour to raise children, which means we need praying mothers more than we ever have before.
A godly mother is persistent.
Along with prayer there needs to be a persistency in raising your children. There will be moments when it looks like the wheels are about to fall off or nothing is working. In those moments you need to stay the course and trust what God has said in his word. It will not always be easy, but it will always be worth it.
A godly mother knows when it’s time to let go.
Despite the amount of love, nurturing, caring, and concern a mother can give, there will come a time when they must let go. Perhaps this is the most challenging part of motherhood. You must recognize that raising your children is not a permanent job, but a temporary one. You may have a few decades to do it, but there will come a time when your work is done. This does not mean you stop being a mother – it means that your responsibilities in the life of your child change.
Many times, they may go and start their own families and you must recognize that your role is different. It is important not to neglect this role, and it is also important to be sure you transition into this role. You are no longer the chief instructor, but now you become the chief supporter and encourager. The support and encouragement you give during this time can be what your children need to carry on and be the adults God intends them to be. Without this transition, you may end up doing more harm than good.
