Motherhood: A Sacred Task

Titus 2:3-5  (ID: 1124)

When Paul exhorted Titus to teach sound doctrine, he also instructed older women to teach younger women so that God’s Word would not be maligned. In this Mother’s Day message, Alistair Begg encourages us to resist the lure of secular culture’s values and instead to honor those who work hard at home, loving their husbands and children. A mother finds liberation and fulfillment in her role when she believes God’s eternal purposes for motherhood and obeys His instructions.


3Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
