Mothers - labor on!
In my opinion, there is no job more valuable nor important than mothers who make birthing, caring, nurturing, educating and raising their children their first priority. The energy and sacrifice required to fulfill that task is inestimable. The mother-child relationship provides the first experience of sacrificial love in the child's development. Other than the Father's gift of His Son Jesus Christ for our salvation, children are the most precious gift we have from the Lord. "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward." (Psalm 127:3 ESV) Children belong to God, in whose image they have been created and the mother's care of them and sacrifice for them does not go unnoticed by the Lord. Mothers - labor on! Don't let the voices of ignorance, deceived by the evil one, undermine your commitment to your family. They have been been blinded by the god of this world. They and those who embrace their ideology need the truth of the gospel.
