Can Mothers Make A Difference? What Is The Amazing Impact of Mothering for God? ** The Importance of Mothers. Godly mothers seek every opportunity to teach the truth of God to their children. They make sure they are under the sound of the gospel and the taught Word of God. The French patriot Giovani Ruffini is reported to have said, “Stories first heard at a mother’s knee are never wholly forgotten.” Nowhere is this better illustrated than in 2 Timothy 1:5. In the passage before us, the Apostle Paul bases his appeal to Timothy upon the faith and teaching of Timothy’s mother and grandmother. We must not make the mistake of giving Paul all of the credit for Timothy’s conversion to the gospel. Paul didn’t claim it for himself. Paul recognized the influence of Timothy’s mother Eunice and his grandmother Lois. Often, it is our mother’s belief in Christ and in us that used by the Holy Spirit to bring us to God. Andrew Dickson White: “If the time should ever come when women are not Christians and houses are not homes, then we shall have lost the chief cornerstones on which civilization stands.” In a very real sense mothers, godly mothers prepare and preserve the future for us. ** [We Apologize for the glitches in the video]** But we did want to make the Biblical teaching available to you guys.
