The Bible contains many references to women, some of which show the nature of good motherhood. Consider:
Jochobed who so cared for Moses, that she broke the law to keep him safe and teach him the faith of God (Exodus 2:1-3,9).
The mother who appeared before King Solomon who loved her child so much she was willing to give him up forever, rather than see any harm come to him (1 Kings 3:16-27).
Hannah who gave her son back to God to serve.
The mother of James and John who loved her boys so much that she wanted them to be seated at the right and left of the Lord’s side and not herself (Matthew 20:21).
These pictures of mothers in the Bible may not be perfect, but it is a practical picture because we learn valuable lessons from their examples.
There truly isn’t a sweeter gift than that of a good mom. Children should count themselves very fortunate when they have a mother that loves them, cares for them, teaches them, and guides the to a belief in God and the Bible.
