Your influence as a mother is powerful. Don’t waste it. Little eyes are watching you.
I came across this quote on Pinterest when it sparked my interest and made me dig into my Bible. I never really understood how much power and influence went into being a mother, until now, that I am a mother myself. Even then, sometimes, with everything I do on a daily, I forget how important my role is. But regardless if I remember or forget, the role of being a mother is important.
I want to focus on one word that speaks deeply to me.
Influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone. While power is the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events. It’s evident that these two go hand and in hand but what impacts me the most about having both in a position of motherhood is the fact that it can change the course of someone’s life based on their character and behavior.
Mom’s, I want to ask you this because I had to ask myself:
Who are you influencing your daughters to be?
It may seem like such a simple question but according to Titus 2:4-5, there is a lot we need to teach our daughters, because they have a huge position to fill when they become adults.
