WORDS OF WISDOM FOR MOTHERS
by Ruth Bell Graham
We mothers must take care of the possible and trust God for the impossible. We are to love, affirm, encourage, teach, listen, and care for the physical needs of the family.
We cannot convict of sin, create hunger and thirst after God, or convert. These are miracles, and miracles are not in our department.
I have, as wife and mother, a good cause the best cause in the world — but I lack the shoulders to support it. The job isn’t too big for me.
I’m not big enough for the job.
As a mother, I must faithfully, patiently, lovingly and happily do my part — then quietly wait for God to do His.
