Moms and Grandmas, do you know how important you are? You play a vital role in the work of God and the spreading of the gospel. When you’re wiping runny little noses, cleaning up dried on food, and hauling your kids here and there, you may not feel like you are making a difference – but you are. You may feel insignificant – but nothing could be farther from the truth.
Grandma Lois and mother Eunice had sincere faith. They had the kind of faith that was real. They not only talked about their faith but they demonstrated it in their every day life. 2 Timothy 1:5
And they taught their little Timothy the Scripture. They knew Scripture was able to give little Timothy the wisdom that would lead him to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. They knew Scripture would make him adequate (complete) and equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17
At some point in time, Timothy, like his Grandma Lois and mother Eunice, also came to have sincere faith. He became convinced of the things he had been taught as a child. His faith became his own. And he went on to become an evangelist, spreading the gospel of Christ. 2 Timothy 3:14
Mom, you are important. Grandma, you are important. God has positioned both of you right where you are – a position of utmost importance. He has given you the very children and grandchildren that He wants you to influence. He wants you to pass your faith on to those He has entrusted into your care.
So how do we pass on faith? Let’s talk more about this tomorrow.
