It has changed so much in my lifetime from where daddy was the breadwinner and mommy took care of the home. Today many dads have two or three jobs and work long hours like 9 to 5. They do not go to work at 9, that is when they get home at night and they leave for work at 5 in the morning. It is unusual to find a stay at home mom. You see so many young mothers frantically running around to take their children to this or that event. Then comes the problem of single parent families, it is such a heartbreak. Also there is the growing epidemic of latchkey children who come home after school and they are alone till mommy or daddy arrives. On May, 10, 1996 the Washington Times wrote," The habits of the home in one generation become the morals of society in the next". William Ross Wallace, a US poet, wrote, "The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world-". Mothers set the tone for the home or have a great influence on it. Not only do mothers bear the children but they comfort them when they are sick, (1 Thessalonians 2:7, Isaiah 66:13, 2 Kings 4:19&20). Mothers can also have a great influence on their children’s spiritual life and they can help them to know Jesus Christ, (Proverbs 6:20, 1 Timothy 1:5). See you in Church next Sunday.
