“An ounce of mother can be worth more than a ton of clergy.”  The author of this quote is unknown, but obviously, his purpose was not to downgrade the clergy, but rather to promote true, Christian motherhood.


Yes, “an ounce of mother,” if that mother is a godly one, is of far more worth than a ton of jewels.  So, if you feel that your duties as a busy Christian mother are preventing you from doing many of the things you would like to do for the lord outside the home, remember that motherhood and your ministry in the home is very important to the Lord.


A woman once wrote to the great evangelist, Gypsy Smith, and told him she had been converted in one of his campaigns.  She said, “I believe the Lord wants me to preach the gospel but the trouble is, I have twelve children to raise.  What shall I do?”


The loving Gypsy wrote, “My dear lady, I am happy to hear that you have been saved and feel called to preach, but I am even more delighted to know that God has already provided you with a congregation of twelve.”  The mother got the point.


When did you last stop and thank God for the high calling of motherhood?
