Mother's Day 2016 - The Distinctives of Motherhood

2 Timothy 1:1-5

The Bible not only trumpets motherly virtues; it esteems motherhood as honorable. The fact that God would use a human mother to bring His Son into the world has bestowed upon motherhood its greatest honor. Jesus set an example for all to follow by the provision He made for His mother (John 19:25-27). Jesus spoke of His compassion for Jerusalem as being like that of a mother hen for her chicks (Matt. 23:37). Paul compared his ministry to a mother in labor (Gal. 4:19) and a nursing mother (1 Thess. 2:7). So we see from Scripture that motherhood is an honorable calling. So we find ourselves in a quandary today. Motherhood has become so much different then what God designed and the foundation that He had laid. So how do we get back to God's design?
