As Mother’s Day approaches, I find myself reflecting on all of the lessons I’ve learned both from my own mother as well as examples of Godly women that the Lord has placed in my life. Although I did not grow up in a Christian home, I learned so many valuable lessons from my mother, lessons such as:
Always be true to yourself. My mother always told me to be me, and no one else. It sounds pretty basic, but as I became a Christian, I have realized the value of walking in my own identity and who God created me to me. Being true to myself means being true to the person God created me to be. I don’t have to be like anyone else.
Treat others as you would want to be treated. I learned from a very early age that if I wanted others to be nice, I had to be nice. This is another truth that although I learned in a non-Christian home, was tucked away in God’s Word. “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
There are other lesson, but I will save those for another time.
Over the course of the next few weeks, through Mother’s Day, my fabulous team of writers over at 5 Minutes for Faith, will be sharing their hearts on lessons they’ve learned from their own mothers. This is not a series just for moms, but it’s a series for the heart of every women who needs to be encouraged — whether a mom, a mom-in-waiting, or someone struggling in a relationship with a mom. We are all called to lead other women through Godly examples.
I hope you will join us over the course of the next few weeks. Oh, and there just might be some fabulous giveaways along the way! Will you head over to 5 Minutes for Faith and check on my intro post? And be sure visit over the next few weeks. You don’t want to miss your chance to perhaps win a prize!
