Proverbs 31:1 NIV

The sayings of King Lemuel – an oracle his mother taught him:

His mother (Bathsheba) was obviously a wise woman and one who influenced her son a great deal, in order to teach him as she had done. She is often portrayed in various ways by people studying the Bible, but whatever/whoever she was, her teachings to Lemuel showed a maturity with age and experience. This teaching came to him from an early age, and from a mother who knew and loved God. It is not uncommon for an adult to recall what they have been taught as children and we, as mothers, have an important role in this regard. Fathers also have an important role to play in teaching their children, but when the children are really young, it is frequently the mother who has the most influence.

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, who has shown us much love and patience, teach us to show this same love and patience to our children as they grow up, so that they may too, grow to love your Words and your ways.
