Intro – Every Mother’s day and Father’s day I am reminded of how blessed I was to have godly Christian parents who trained me up to follow the Lord and to know the way of salvation. Today being Mother’s day I want to look at some examples of godly mothers in the Bible.

            B. She gave her child to the Lord. 1Sam.1:27-28

                        3. They understand more than you realize. Mt.11:25, Mt.21:16

the Lord.
