A BALANCED VIEW OF MOTHERHOOD -

FROM THE  CHRISTIAN RELIGION POINT OF VIEW,

(Other Religions also support this point view)

 

At creation the woman was assigned an honorable role in family arrangement. The first woman, Eve, was provided as Adam's complement, or counterpart. She was fitted just perfectly to be a helper for him. She was to be a part of God's purpose for them to produce children and care for them as well as to take care of the earth and its animals. She would provide the intellectual stimulus and support of true companion. How happy Adam was for receiving this beautiful gift from the Creator! - Genesis 1:26-28; 2:23

 

Later, God established guidelines as to how women were to be treated. For example, Israelite mothers were to be shown honor and not to be treated with contempt. Obedience and honour to Parents is well emphasized in the Christian Bible - Leviticus 19:3; 20:9; Proverbs 30:17

 

Under the husband's direction, the mother was to be the educator of both daughters and sons. A son was commanded "not to forsake the law of his mother." (Proverbs 6:20)

 

Further, every young man contemplating marriage would be wise to consider the description of "a capable wife …because her value is far more than that of corals." Clearly, the Creator in the context of the Christian Religious Teaching made women to occupy a position of honor and responsibility in the family. Proverbs 31: 10-31

 

LET US ALWAYS EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE TO OUR MOTHERS

 

Indeed, mothers who assume their responsibility as educators can feel proud of their role. It is a worthwhile career. They rightfully deserve commendation and heartfelt expressions of appreciation. We learn so much from mothers - habits that stand us in good stead though out life, good manners so essential for good relationships, and in many cases a moral and spiritual upbringing that keeps youths on course. Have you recently expressed your appreciation to your mother for what she has done for you? Consider doing it now!
