Mother praying with her child.

"The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world!"

Mothers of the next generation are the ones who are molding the future! Motherhood is just about the greatest calling in the World! What an important job a mother has!--Of course, it may sometimes not seem very important taking care of nothing but a baby. But don't ever despise it or minimise it. It is a serious sobering responsibility! Who knows how important that child may be to the Lord one day?

Motherhood is a big job! It takes the strength of Samson, the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job and the faith of Abraham, the insight of Daniel and the courage and administrative ability of David!--It also takes the Love of God, that's for sure!--What a job!

The thing that makes a mother so wonderful is that self-sacrificial spirit that is willing to sacrifice her own time, her strength and even her health for the sake of that child. Any mother can have a baby, but it takes a real mother to learn how to "train up a child in the way he should go!" (Pro.22:6)

"The bravest battle that ever was fought,
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the World you will find it not,
It was fought by the mothers of men!"
