Finally we look at mother as a teacher and mentor of her children. Proverbs 31:26 says: “She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
A mom teaches by communicating her values and priorities and by being a model that her children can pattern themselves by.
A mother is the primary teacher of the next generation. Proverbs 1:8 says: “Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.”
A mother teaches her daughter about being a godly woman. “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” – Proverbs 31:30
A mother models to her daughter the significant impact of her role as a wife and mother in God’s design of the family.
She models to her son the kind of woman he should marry. Proverbs 31:1 talks about an oracle taught by a mother to her son. She also teaches her son how to honour and appreciate a woman’s responsibilities of being a wife and mom.
Mentoring occurs when a woman is available to teach other women how to love God, love their husbands and love their children.
A successful mother must be committed to God and His Word and not the world.
What kind of legacy will you, as a mother, leave?
