Motherhood: A Christian Discipline

proverbs 13 24

Proverbs 13: 24\

The one who spares his rod hates his child, but the one who loves his child is diligent in disciplining him.

Motherhood is a great challenge. It starts the day our first child is born, and ends the day we die. We become mothers without a guidance book. Instinct takes over and becomes our dependency. Such a little person relies on us to do the right thing, make the right decisions, and use the right judgment. WOW… That is a lot to handle.

Do the right thing

Maternal instinct leads us to do the right thing by our children. Do we make mistakes? Oh! YES! We do. On purpose? Absolutely, not. We may get frustrated or exhausted, but as motherhood goes, we must keep going. We lead our children the best we can.

As Christian mothers, we teach them about God, we teach them about Bible stories, and we teach them to do good by others. They we pray to God to be with them every step they make. We ask him to protect them and keep them safe. We trust and have faith that he will be there each time they need Him.

Perhaps, we believe in our hearts that with God’s guidance we will do the right thing every time. Moreover, we pray and hope that our children will do the right thing as well. We give them all the tools they need to be good citizens. In addition, with God by their side, they will have a guide just as we do.

Make the right decision

It is not easy to make the right decision every time. We stumble, we fall, we waiver, and we hesitate. We weigh the pros and cons and hope for a desirable outcome. However, the Holy Spirit consciously tugs at us to make good decisions. He is the quiet voice that directs us in our path. He is the quiet voice that leads our children as well. He convicts us when we are wrong, and gives us an embraceable happiness when we do what is right.

In the same manner, we trust God to provide guidance through the Holy Spirit; we can rest assured that he will do the same for our children. If we doubt, then we shall consult Him in prayer to get an answer to our dilemma.

Use the right judgment

This is a tough one, if we try to judge on our own, however, if we trust God’s judgment, then we can be at peace that we used the right judgment. When faced with situations regarding our children, we tend to use emotions as our guides. Sometimes we are too soft. However, we must have tough skin to make the right judgment call. Imagine, when our children get in trouble, if we do not discipline them, then we are doing them harm. They could think that they got away with something and grow up to be unruly.

We must be tough, yet gentle, we must discipline in love, yet firm, and we must correct our children when they are wrong, yet be loving mothers. We must also teach our children to be good, obedient, and of good moral character, so they too will use the right judgment when faced with difficulties.

Deuteronomy 8:5

Be keenly aware that just as a parent disciplines his child, the Lord your God disciplines you.

I Saw Santa or Was it Jesus

christ birth

It was the night before Christmas

And all through the house

It was so, and so quiet

You could hear the mouse.

———-

The children asleep

With their eyes opened wide

For Santa is coming

And they don’t know how.

———-

Their curiosity peaks

As they hear the bells

As they chime and they chime

Up, up in the clouds.

———–

The sleigh lands on top

What is the ruckus I hear?

I thought to myself

Santa is here!!!

————

All of a sudden

In front of my sight

Stood this white bearded man

With a smile and I cried.

jesus

For I never had seen

Such a beautiful sight

Santa and his elves

Were now in my house.

———–

As a child, I laid awake

Full of hopes

And childish dreams

Of seeing him and say

———-

Thank you Santa

And here

I made you a cookie

With my mother, dear.

———-

Instead, all I could

Was to smile and express

The gratitude I felt,

For him all this years.

———-

Had it not been for you

As a child I would have stopped

To have beautiful dreams

And always have hope.

———–

Yet, you gave me belief

That one person can care.

And that it is Jesus’s birth

we celebrate everywhere.

———–

By giving out hope

And sharing your wealth

With love and compassion

Yet, you have taught

———-

Tis the season for giving

Our love, to all those

That God placed in our path

And are here with us.

 jesus hugging

Once, I said what I thought

I gave him a hug

As he looked at me and said

It is you, I have always loved.

———–

As the season is here

Let us not forget

To love one another

With laughter and cheer

————

And as we open our presents

Rejoice and remember

Jesus birth is the reason

We celebrate each season.

———–

Luke

1:14 Joy and gladness will come  to you, and many will rejoice at his birth, 

1:31 Listen:  You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.

Note;

As we gather at Christmas surrounded by loved ones, let us remember those that have left.

May God be with you, always.

Today’s Verse

1 Peter 2

17 Honor all people, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the king.

 

Earthly Family

When we are born, we become part of our earthly family. They provide us with our physical needs. They teach us about love, unity, and care. We form a bond that lasts a lifetime. We become part of its history.

Spiritual Family

When we are born again, we become part of our spiritual family. A unity formed by our belief in Jesus Christ, his resurrection, and our salvation. It teaches us about loving one another, honoring those around us, and respecting each other. We are part of the body of Christ; we become sisters and brothers in faith. We form a bond that last through eternity. We become part of the Book of Life.

Note:

I thank my parents for giving me life, so that I could live and choose to love God, and so I could find His promises of life everlasting, faith by His Grace, and love unconditional.

Do you have a spiritual family?
