Motherhood as a Mission Field

19 July 2011

The blistering heat  of the summer “Dog Days” can make the joy and encouragement of Mother’s Day feel like a distant memory. This can be especially true if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed with having the kiddos around more during summer break.

This post on Motherhood as a Mission Field is a powerful reminder on the role moms play in the Kingdom of God. The following is quote from the article:

“If you are a Christian woman who loves the Lord, the gospel is important to you. It is easy to become discouraged, thinking that the work you are doing does not matter much. If you were really doing something for Christ you would be out there, somewhere else, doing it. Even if you have a great perspective on your role in the kingdom, it is easy to lose sight of it in the mismatched socks, in the morning sickness, in the dirty dishes. It is easy to confuse intrigue with value, and begin viewing yourself as the least valuable part of the Church.

There are a number of ways in which mothers need to study their own roles, and begin to see them, not as boring and inconsequential, but as home, the headwaters of missions.”

May the love of Christ overflow to you and from you as you sacrifice for the gospel.
