2 Timothy 1:5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

So many of us look to Proverbs 31 as an example of a good mother. Here Paul is writing Timothy. He gives credit to Timothy’s mother and grandmother for Timothy’s faith. It appears not only did the teach Timothy about Jesus and God, they also showed him through their lives. As mothers and grandmothers we have an important role in the lives of our children. We start teaching them about God’s love the first time we hold them. As they grow they watch us. I’m sure Lois and Eunice did more than teach and demonstrate faith to Timothy. I’m sure they did a lot of praying for him. The question of teaching and demonstrating is fairly obvious. Our question today, on Mother’s Day, is are we praying for our children and grandchildren with the intensity of God’s love? Pray for at least one child today and have a blessed Mother’s Day.
