Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who's the Best Mom of All?

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

What is it that will make us better mothers? Is it trying to do all the special fun things others do with their kids? Or is it giving our children lots of toys and clothes? If so, some of us would be unable to give as much or do as much, depending on our circumstances. That's why it's bad to judge ourselves as moms in comparison with other moms. Instead, we need to do what will help us develop and grow as mothers. I try to learn all I can about how to be a good Christian mom. Here are some things that will help each of us to be the best moms we can be!

Seek God's help and wisdom.

Raising children is a tremendous responsibility. We need to pray for wisdom. Many times a day I stop to ask God for wisdom in dealing with the situations that arise. At times I'm just at a loss as to how to deal with the kids and as I pray, God will bring to mind a verse, or the words I need to say. Later I marvel, knowing I couldn't have thought of that answer myself!

We also need to read God's Word if we want to train our kids in God's ways. I have found the book of Proverbs to be especially helpful, as it is the book of wisdom.

Read good books about parenting.

I am always looking for books that will encourage me and challenge me to do what's right; books that stress the importance of discipline; books that remind me of what a special job God has given me; books that give me ideas. It's easy to get tired and discouraged after days of endless discipline, diapers, etc. I need books that remind me of what God says is necessary and that motivate me to 'keep on!'.

Many moms say, "Well, I just don't have time to ready anymore." I don't have time either, but I make it. I squeeze it in whenever I can.

Listen to CDs about being a good mother.

Again, the positive reinforcement we receive from these can be an inspiration to us to strive to be our best. (You can listen to quite a few CDs if you get in the habit of taking them with you whenever you drive somewhere.)

As I seek God's wisdom through these different methods, there are four 'MUSTS' that stand out to me as truly vital in raising our kids. These four vital 'must do's' are:

1. Consistently discipline our kids according to God's Word.

2. Teach our kids God's Word and develop in them a love for the Bible.

3. Train our kids in Godly character.

4. Pray for our kids without ceasing.

I am asking God to help me stop comparing myself to other moms, which leads me to discouragement, and help me to look to Him for the help I need to be the best mom I can be!
