We all have a sacred call, a noble profession.
We are given a biblical mandate that we are to train up the next generation. Women we are the nurturers of homes the holder of our children’s hearts and we are the creators of safe havens for our family.
But we are failing the next generation if we are not training up other young women around us.
Some of us have learned the hard way and some of us had heeded the wisdom of the Word. Both of us have stories to share that will help the young learn how to love their husbands or their future mates. We must undo the harshness of parents that have left broken hearts behind to mend themselves.
Our responsibility is to more than just our own children. The Body of Christ needs you to take up your mantle and place it on another’s shoulders. We must make time to invest in our future by modeling, mentoring and mandating the next generation.
It is our responsibility and the gift of your wisdom and knowledge is desperately needed. For those of us whose precious ones have left the nest, look around you and invest every gem of wisdom you have learned into another. If your children are still home you can make time for those the Spirit of God brings across your path.
There are scars that can be avoided, divorces that don’t have to happen; children that will benefit from the time you spend investing in another woman’s life. Within your everyday experiences are the lessons learned that can radically change the future of another woman’s life and family.
We are needed and wanted more than ever. Though it might be hard to believe that we can make that kind of difference we have scriptures that prove it.
3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good,
4 so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
