Maybe not today, but one day you will wonder whether you have failed as a mother. This most important mission of your life—to raise a loving, caring, responsible human being and send them into the world to share God’s light—will seem like a task you are simply not up to.
This feeling may last a short time, as a child goes through a phase of selfishness or ungratefulness, or it may take a much longer road as we watch our sweet baby struggle with addiction or a life of crime. We can be reassured by Jesus’ words. If we are good, only good fruit can come from our lives regardless of how things may appear.
“Can you pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.” Matthew 7:16–18 NLT
Do you love God with all your heart?
Have you accepted the free gift of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus?
You are doing this mothering thing right. Cling to God’s promises and savor his Word.
God bless .
