In Paul’s letter to Titus, he encouraged the older women to train the younger women with regard to philoteknos – a term meaning to love their husbands and their children. Christian mothers are to develop a sincere “mother love,” which has in its characteristics the ability to nurture, a tendency for affection, a desire to meet all the needs of the children, and tenderly befriending each of their children as a unique gift and reward from the Lord.
Because Christian motherhood is a powerful calling, the Bible is filled with descriptions of the endeavors found in mature Christ loving mothers. This sermon outlines a few of those godly characteristics that make up a Christ-centered mother.
