Mommy Mantra January 26, 2015: 2 TM 1:1-8
Two things about this reading that I believe is very important for moms. First, Paul reminds us that “God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.”
Secondly, Paul reminds Timothy who has helped him have this great faith: Grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice.
So parental women were very important in Timothy’s faith formation reinforcing our Baptismal role as Prophet-First Teacher. Also in this reading Paul reminds Timothy, (us), that God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but of power, love, self-control. All things we need, and maybe the only things we need, to live a very successful life faith life, work life, family life
Today I am praying for all of us Moms/Mr. Moms
