Bible Study Notes on Being a Mom Part 2

1 Thessalonians 2:7-10  But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. 8 Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us. 9 For you recall, brethren, our labor and hardship, how working night and day so as not to be a burden to any of you, we proclaimed to you the gospel of God. 10 You are witnesses, and so is God, how devoutly and uprightly and blamelessly we behaved toward you believers

-Characteristics we can associate from this passage that are indicative of a good mother:

1. gentle (opposite-harsh or cruel),

2. tender care (nurturing),

3. fond affection (love from the heart, warmth, regard),

4. imparting the gospel and their own life to the dearly loved

5. hardworking, laboring night & day,

6. suffering hardship with the right attitude,

7. carrier of burden (willing to bear the load)

8. devout (sincere, earnest, heartfelt, fervent, serious),

9. upright (just, proper, not playing favorites),

10. blameless in behavior (above reproach, great reputation)

Application: If you are a mom, are these qualities yours and growing in the love of
Christ Jesus? You are an undershepherd in your home and have God-given responsibilities

If you are a son or daughter and have your mom still around, what are some of the admirable qualities from today's study you see in your mom? Have you told much you appreciate those qualities lately?
