“Behold children are a gift from the Lord” (Ps. 127:3, NASB).
You have heard it said, “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” Many of us would agree that our mothers have had a profound effect on us. We have tangible proof that moms strengthen legacies.
Pastor Billy Graham is quoted as saying, “Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.”
Perhaps you might recognize what a few other notable people have said about their mothers:
“All I am I owe to my mother, I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” —George Washington
“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” —Abraham Lincoln
“I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother.” —Charles Spurgeon
