A Mother's Good Works

Hebrews 10:24 says... And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.

Sometimes as a wife and mother we see our tasks as mundane. We tend to see washing dishes, doing laundry, etc as not so important. The truth is we are serving God as we do this. It is part of our work for God. These things are part of our good work.

Coloss 3:23 speaks to servants, and we are all servants of God when we serve and take care of our families. It says...
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men

Ecclesiast. 9:10 says Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might...

I'd like to encourage you. as you do daily chores, do it with a heart focused on God. For you are doing it for him.

In 1st Timothy we are encouraged to "adorn ourselves" with good works.

Psalms 90:17 says And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

I pray that God will establish the work of my hands, whether giving a hug, or putting on a band-aid, or just mopping the floor. Let us do all for his glory and in his service.


  1. Thanks for the uplifting words. I tell you, sometimes our work is so repetitive that it seems no one appreciates it. If it wasn't for mothers, where would this world be? "They'd be living in a pig's sty and starving!"

  2. Such a good point! Often I feel like its the same thing day in and day out. Also I feel sad when I am not appreciated enough but your blog just reminded me that the work I do should be with no expectations, only for His glory! thank you for writing!



I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to write. Tammy
