Mothers in the Bible

[223 words]

The role that mothers played in the biblical story is undeniable. From the beginning pages of Genesis to the latter letters of Timothy, the influence of mothers (both good and bad) is seen time and time again. The impact that the mother has on the child can and will have everlasting consequences (2 Timothy 3:15). The godly mother will pass on a genuine faith to her children just as Timothy’s mother, Eunice did for him (2 Timothy 1:5). Here’s a small sample of the mothers found in the Bible:

• Eve was the “mother of all living” (Genesis 3:20)
• Sarah became a mother in her old age (Genesis 21:7)
• Rebekah preferred one son over the other (Genesis 27:5-10)
• Jochebed hid her son from harm for 3 months (Exodus 2:1-3)
• Hannah dedicated her son to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:22)
• Bathsheba lost the son of her adultery (2 Samuel 12:15-18)
• Elizabeth’s son prepared people for the Lord (Luke 1:13-17)
• Mary watched her Son be crucified for the world’s sin (John 19:26)

Today, we pay tribute to our godly mothers, thanking God for their love, care and guidance in the ways of the Lord.

“Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her” (Proverbs 31:28)
