INTRODUCTION

It is a fact that Satan is attempting to rob this world of one of its most prized possession, "A Godly Mother." We are seeing alarming numbers of abortions, desertions, abuse, and child neglect in our world. This is the reason that I specified "Godly Mother."
Yet, because of the overwhelming number of mothers with, at least, some godly traits we still esteem the office of motherhood high. There is a reason for the decline of godly mothers and it is coupled with the decline of spiritual pursuit. Mom has an awesome responsibility placed upon her by an expectant society.
This expectation multiplies when Mom is in the church setting. This brings us to the text that God has directed me to. I want us to look at three elements of this passage, to:

INSTILLED VS. 5

Unfeigned faith

Unfeigned -

In the NT, it came to mean one without hypocrisy or pretense, unfeigned, genuine, real, true, sincere (Rom. 12:9; 2 Cor. 6:6; 1 Tim. 1:5; 2 Tim. 1:5; 1 Pet. 1:22; James 3:17).

Faith -

That is in Timothy

Zodhiates, S. (2000). The complete word study dictionary: New Testament (electronic ed.). Chattanooga, TN: AMG Publishers.

You have the same faith as your mother and she had the same faith as her mother.

Their faith was so precious to them that they instilled it in you.

INCITE VS. 6

Remember the gift

By the putting on of Paul's hands (obedience)

Excepted by the unfeigned faith that was instilled

With that Same Faith Incite that Gift of God

Operate in that gift

Stir-up:

The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament 329. ἀναζωπυρέω anazōpuréō

ἀναζωπυρέω anazōpuréō; contracted anazōpurṓ, fut. anazōpurḗsō, from aná (303), again, and zōpuréō (n.f.), to revive a fire. To revive, stir up as a fire (2 Tim. 1:6; Sept.: Gen. 45:27).

ENDOWMENT VS. 7

Look What God has Given You

Power - might - strength:

δύναμις dúnamis; gen. dunámeōs, fem. noun from dúnamai (1410), to be able. Power, especially achieving power. All the words derived from the stem dúna- have the meaning of being able, capable.

Love:

ἀγάπη agápē; gen. agápēs, fem. noun from agapáō (25), to love. Love, affectionate regard, goodwill, benevolence. With reference to God’s love, it is God’s willful direction toward man. It involves God doing what He knows is best for man and not necessarily what man desires. For example, John 3:16 states, “For God so loved [ēgápēsen] the world, that he gave.” What did He give? Not what man wanted, but what God knew man needed, i.e., His Son to bring forgiveness to man.

Sound Mind:

The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament 4995. σωφρονισμός sōphronismós

σωφρονισμός sōphronismós; gen. sōphronismoú, masc. noun from sōphronízō (4994), to discipline, correct. Self–discipline, sobriety, sound mind, sound judgment (2 Tim. 1:7).

Consider Where They Come From

By example

Submission to His Word

God honoring these

CLOSE:

This passage should, I feel, encourage both the mother and the child. The mother inspired to become a godly mother. The child inspired to take hold of the faith that mother held to.
