A Sacred Trust

 
 
"O dear mothers, you have a sacred trust reposed in you by God!
He hath in effect said to you, 'Take this child and nurse him for Me, and I will give thee wages.'
You are called to equip the future man of God, that he may thoroughly furnished unto every good work.
 If God spares you, you may live to hear that pretty boy speak to thousands, and you will have the sweet reflection in your heart that the quiet teachings of the nursery led the man to love his God and serve Him.
 
Those who think that a woman detained at home by her little family is doing nothing, think the reverse of what is true. Scarcely can the godly mother quit her home for a place of worship;
but dream not that she is lost to the work of the church; far from it, she is doing the best possible service for her Lord.
Mothers, the godly training of your offspring is your first and most pressing duty."
 
~  Charles Spurgeon
 
 
Happy Mother's Day, friends!
