Both biological and spiritual mothers deserve to be celebrated for their many vast contributions to the body of Christ and to the world in general. The relational role of a Godly woman is capable of building up, restoring, and cultivating to a marvelous extent. What we find in Proverbs 31 and elsewhere in scripture is a picture of grace, compassion, service, and spiritual power. We would do well to heed the wisdom of mothers and look to their example. The Bible is replete with these examples to show us the authority and faith that God provides to overcome the trials and challenges that life presents. Brothers and sisters let the mothers arise and let us cherish the mothers for the sake of this generation.
At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did. But it happened in those days that she became sick and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room. And since Lydda was near Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him, imploring him not to delay in coming to them. Then Peter arose and went with them. When he had come, they brought him to the upper room. And all the widows stood by him weeping, showing the tunics and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them. But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up. Then he gave her his hand and lifted her up; and when he had called the saints and widows, he presented her alive. And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed on the Lord.
