This week’s question: How would you rate yourself as a mother, 10 being the highest?
Tough one, I should say or maybe I’m just too afraid to evaluate myself. This question brings me to a bible verse:
Be wise, my son, and make my heart rejoice, that I may make a reply to him that is taunting me. Proverbs 27:11.
The request comes from God; asking us to show our integrity and faith towards him. It is so that he may reply to Satan who has mocked his sovereignty long ago…When he told Adam and Eve that they would not die from eating the fruit of the Tree of Life, he called God a liar, implicating that he shouldn’t be the one to rule man. We face this challenge with God because we are his sons, we need to prove that our Father is fair and that he is the right ruler for us. It’s also Satan who is testing our integrity. The story of Job shows this well. Though God permitted the hardships, it was not him who gave them but Satan.
In the same sense, I cannot say well for myself…my kids are the ones who will answer for me. It will be manifested in their manners, the way they behave at home and around other people and the way they think and speak. 🙂
I guess you're right. Our kids will be a testament to how well we did as moms. When we see them grow up to be decent human beings, that's when we'll know that we raised them well.
if i were to rate you i'll give you a perfect 10, every mum who has their children's best interest at heart deserves one!
