Ladies, even though you may not stand in a pulpit or have a license or ordination papers, you are women in ministry!  All too often, as women your lives are occupied with work and family. These are extremely essential elements of your lives.

They are a part of your daily responsibilities; and that which is entrusted to us by the Lord. Being a Mom and caring for our families does not make us any less spiritual or important than those who serve in ministry.  Proverbs 31

Mothers are in the most powerful position to influence change in the world as we train our children. Our little ones are the clay that we have been given to mold into future followers of Christ.  As Moms, you are the world to your children. We are to transfer that love and devotion to an unseen God.  2 Corinthians 5:18.

Our children, regardless of age, look to us for guidance, comfort, and compassion.  As we teach them to say their prayers at night, to bless their food before they eat, to share and to consider the feelings of others, we are ministering Christ and teaching them the character that becomes a believer.  As we walk in love and patience, we are ministering Christ. As we love our husbands and treat them with respect, we are mirroring Christ.  Proverbs 22:6.

Working Moms

As women in who works outside the home, you are women in ministry! The workplace is another opportunity to be a light to our co-workers. Whether we know it or not, we are being watched, to see if we live what we preach. The workplace is the best place to say little and lives much.  Be on time, do more than is expected of you, don’t preach on the boss’s time, do not murmur or complain, and God will fight your battles.

You will find that when those you work with see the Glory of God in your life, they will come to you with their problems, and seek your council.  Proverbs 22:1.  Mothers are ministers indeed.  You will minister constantly, to your children, our spouses and those we work with.   Be encourage and know your labor is not in vain, know that even though you may not always get the praise your deserve, you are doing a great work, that will reap many rewards.  Galatians 6:9.
