In the story of the Pharisee and the publican the Pharisee is one who prayed long and often, but he was a miserable failure. His prayers were never heard by God because neither he nor his prayers were ever right with God.
Behind every great man is his mother. Someone imagined the mothers of these well-known sons making the following comments: Mothers do influence their sons and daughters!
And, thus, one of the greatest gifts you can give your children is to be a godly mother. But, sadly, the influence of the feminist movement has caused the status of motherhood to decline. Women are encouraged to find fulfillment in a career, not in raising children.
If kids come along, they are dropped off at the day care center, sometimes even as infants. Inonly 12 percent of women with preschool children worked outside the home.
Byover 50 percent of mothers with children five and under were working. Young mothers also return to work sooner after the birth of their babies than ever before. Bythat figure had jumped to over 50 percent. Even many Christians have adopted the cultural trend.
Most kids would vote for less junk and a mom at home. In 2 Timothy 1: In 2 Timothy 3: Through faith in God and by honoring His Word, godly mothers have great influence as they train their children.
Godly mothers are women of sincere faith 1: Even though they had Greek names, at least Eunice was a Jewish believer Acts Perhaps Lois had been converted in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost and had come home to tell her daughter.

But the implication is that their faith pre-dated that of Timothy. We have no clue as to why a godly woman of faith like Eunice would marry a pagan man.
The Old Testament is very clear that Jews should not marry outside the faith. Perhaps Eunice, though raised by Lois in a faithful Jewish home, went through a time of rebellion, during which she got married, but later came to faith in Jesus as Savior and Messiah.
We can only speculate. We do know that the Bible clearly forbids a believer from marrying an unbeliever. If her son, Timothy, could grow up to follow the Lord as he did, then God can do the same for your children, even if your husband is not a believer.
While God intends for the father to take the lead in the spiritual training of the children, the mother can have a great influence even in situations where the father is passive or hostile to God. One prime quality which such a woman needs is sincere faith.While Old Testament writers sometimes described God using qualities of earthly fathers (and mothers), Jesus referred to God using more informal, intimate language.
He also invites us into this relationship, teaching us to address God as "our Father in heaven" . God the Eternal Father “Chapter 2: God the Eternal Father,” Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith (), 36–44 “The purposes of our God are great, His love unfathomable, His wisdom infinite, and His power unlimited; therefore, the Saints have cause to rejoice and be glad.”.
God in Christianity is the eternal being who created and preserves all things. Christians believe God to be both transcendent (wholly independent of, and removed from, the material universe) and immanent (involved in the world).
Christian teachings of the immanence and involvement of God and his love for humanity exclude the belief that God is of the same substance as the created universe but. Answer: Psalm says, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.” Of all the ways the Lord God Almighty could have chosen to .
The means and methods that fathers may use to teach God's truth will vary. As the father is faithful in role modeling, what children learn about God will put them in good standing throughout their earthly lives, no matter what they do or where they go.
How to Be a Godly Father Many men desire to be good fathers, but the criterion that really counts is whether or not they are godly fathers. Here are four Biblical principles that, by God’s grace, will lay a sound foundation in helping fathers become godly fathers.
