Happy belated Mother's Day to all of you mothers and grandmothers out there who are reading this newsletter! We want you to know that your work and labor of love to your families and households are very much appreciated in the Kingdom of God.
In this day and age where the Judeo-Christian role of both parents, and especially that of the woman and mother in the home, has been radically challenged and criticized by modern feminist and humanistic philosophies, we need to sound a high note of praise to the true mothers in the Kingdom.
I do not have the time in this newsletter to discuss the doctrinal ramifications of motherhood and how far the modern western world has generally strayed from the original pattern. Needless to say that the subject of becoming a good wife and mother in the home falls under the category of "sound doctrine" in Scripture (Titus 2:1-5). God has set a very high standard for women, especially wives and mothers, just as He has for men who are husbands and fathers.
Secular feminists and modernists would make us to believe that holding women to such an "archaic" or "uncivilized" standard is oppressive at best. I beg to differ! God's pattern for the individual as well as the institution of the family transcends time, culture or any other argument concocted by man. This is not oppression! On the contrary, it is freedom.
We are plagued by a lost, lawless and love-deficient generation of young people today for the simple reason that we have left God's original pattern.
So to all the Kingdom-minded mothers out there who have committed a major amount of your time to your homes, husbands and children, regardless of how secular society may have ridiculed you for your sacrifices, I honor you with my praise.
For those of you who feel trapped in a situation where you feel incapable of becoming the wife and mother that God intended for you to be, there is a way out. Fear not; put your trust in God and He will bring your desires to pass.
