most important job in the world
Mom- your job is the most important job in the world. Being a mom is special, crucial, life changing, wonderful, hard, and very rewarding. It is special because God gave you your children and no one else can raise them like you can. It is crucial because future generations are learning from you, so teach them well because they are watching EVERYTHING you do and don't do. It is life changing because it changes you. You are no longer focused only on your own selfish desires but now have children to focus your attention upon. It is wonderful because you get to teach your child, train your child, discipline your child, love your child and they love you back, and disciple your child in the ways of God. You get to point your children to God. You get to teach them to read, and to think, and to figure out their worldview. It is hard because it is ALL TIME CONSUMING. It requires giving of your time and not being selfish. It is very rewarding because we have the privilege of training future moms and dads who will change the world. Being a mom is the best thing in the world. It is a high calling. Even when your children leave the home, your job does not stop. Once a mom-always a mom! Personally, I don't know why any Christian would turn down the opportunity to have children and to raise them to the glory of God. I am not condemning anyone on their decisions. I am just saying that it is a wonderful gift from God to have such a high calling in life.
