“Your Mother, Your Gift”

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Timothy His Mother Eunice and Grandmother Lois. 

Timothy was a youthful and earnest disciple of Jesus Christ, whom Paul loved dearly. Paul had found him during one of his missionary journeys, and, discovering how highly he was esteemed as a Christian, had selected him as his assistant. Afterward Timothy became Paul’s companion in travel, and the first bishop of Ephesus. While Timothy was at Ephesus, Paul wrote two letters to him. They are contained in the Bible, and are called the Epistles to Timothy. In them Paul says many kind and wise things, giving Timothy directions how to act in his high Christian office. But Paul also speaks of Timothy’s early days, and of his mother and grandmother. These were both good women, who loved God, and diligently studied the Holy Scriptures. The mother’s name was Eunice. She was a Jewess. The grandmother’s name was Lois. Both loved the little boy Timothy, or Timotheus as he was called, and they sought to instil into his young mind and heart the love of God and the knowledge of His holy Word. In our picture we see Eunice teaching her son. She has not a bound Bible, but a manuscript, wound round small rollers. From this she reads to Timothy; while Lois, the aged grandmother, sits by.

Paul warned Timothy not to forget the teaching of his good mother and grandmother; and especially to value his knowledge of the Scriptures. Because, said Paul, “they are able to make thee wise unto salvation.” THANK YOU GOD! For mothers and grandmothers, that are teaching children Scriptures, instilling into young mind and heart the love of God and the knowledge of His Holy Word.

2 Timothy 1:4-6 ESV

4(A) As I remember your tears,(B) I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. 5I am reminded of(C) your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and(D) your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 6For this reason I remind you(E) to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands,
