    We must never underestimate the

    role that our mothers play inteaching us about God, about His

    Word, and about salvation. From a

    very early age, a mother is preparing

    us for life. Teaching us about our

    Creator and Redeemer is part of

    God’s purpose for mothers, and we

    must appreciate the godly mothers

    and honor them for taking up the

    challenge of preparing us for life.

    “The person with the socks is a

    friend who has come to you with a

    problem. He or she needs to peel

    Make it Spiritual

    In most cases you will find the unhandicapped persons peeling the

    egg and doing all the work or the

    blindfolded person being taken

    through a complicated process to complete the puzzle. The less obvious

    solution and the point of the task is

    to enable the individual to become

    free to help himself or herself.

    This is best accomplished if the

    two helpers remove the socks from their friend’s hands, or the

    person able to use his hands, but

    not touch the pieces to remove

    the blindfold thus freeing their

    friend to complete the task. (The

    directions only stated that the

    person with the socks or

    blindfold could not remove

    them.)

    There were three ways around the problems:

    1. Do it for the person

    2. Instruct the person on

    how to accomplish the

    activity or

    3. Enable the person to do it

    him or herself.

    This the role God has given parents.

    When we are born, we are very dependent on them to do

    everything for us. But very soon,

    they will start releasing some of

    that role and teaching us, then

    enabling us to do things for

    ourselves, to overcome our

    limitations. We gain strength,

    knowledge, skills, and wisdom to be

    the person God created us to be.

    It would be a sad state to never

    grow and mature and never be

    able to care for ourselves and

    someday care for others. But the

    role of parents is not simply to

    equip us for life with knowledge,

    skills and wisdom. We were created as spiritual beings so that

    role also extends to preparing us

    for our relationship with our

    Creator and Redeemer.

    your parents, by example and

    by their teachings about God? 3. What is our responsibility
