The Goal of Motherhood

This morning’s reading from “Grace Gems” – a piercing reminder of what it means to “Train Up a Child”:
“The goal of the godly mother, is that her children in the flesh–may be God’s children in the spirit. A mother should be more careful of her children’s pious breeding–than she should be fearful of her children’s worldly bearing.


You let out your efforts to make them great–lift up your prayers to make them godly; that before you die from them–you may see Christ live in them.”

(William Secker, 1658)
