A mother’s influence has a unique and long-lasting ripple effect in the life of her son, good and bad. The engaged and active presence of a mom in a boy’s life can instill within him foundational security and courageous confidence. But the absence of a mom in a man’s life can leave him aimless, self-destructive, disconnected, and searching for comfort. There is hope for your sons to develop godly traits by learning these important lessons.
Proverbs 6:22-23 goes on to say, “when you walk here and there, they will guide you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; when you wake up, they will talk to you. For a command is a lamp, a teaching is a light, and corrective discipline is the way to life.”
Notice that it says, “teaching is a light”. What are you teaching your son about life? It is an incredible opportunity to give life to your son by your teaching and guidance.
My mom’s influence on my life has been lasting.
