Mom as the Role-Model For Being Godly
The Bible tells us in Romans to “not be conformed to the pattern of this world…” But what does that mean? Especially for girls today who are inundated with the culture around them, they need to see what it means to be Godly. There are several ways that a mom can “not conform”. First is the current “idol” of materialism and money. Where is our focus as moms, is it keeping up with those around us or is it “learning to be content” as Paul teaches?
Moms for the most part exemplify sacrifice. We are the ones who constantly must put ourselves on the back burner for the needs of our children. It is our attitude about it however that sets us apart. Are we grumbling or acting the martyr or are we considering everything “pure joy”, even the sleepless nights or behavior battles?
Again there are so many more ways to communicate and exemplify for your daughter what it means to be a Godly woman. Take the time to look up Proverbs 31 to see what the wisest man in the world considered to be Godly, as well as Galatians 5:22-25 for what Godly attributes we should have.
