MOTHERS have been urged to live up to the responsibilities of nurturing and molding of their wards for them to be beneficial to themselves, their families and the society at large.
The Vicar, Saint Nicholas Church Achalla, Reverend Canon Emmanuel Onyemauche stated this in a sermon, yesterday, to mark mother’s day, which he titled: “A Christian Mother”.
He maintained that mother’s day was initiated by the church to re-dedicate the mothers every year, presenting them for God’s guidance and protection throughout the year.
Reverend Onyemauche reminded mothers of their roles in the church, family and society, noting that when they do things right , apply patience and endurance, things will be perfect.
The Vicar encouraged them to be prayerful, live scriptural life, ensure that peace reign in their families as well be submissive to their husbands and start early in channeling their children to Christ.
Also, the Vicar in-charge of Immanuel Anglican Church Umueri, Reverend Silvanus Onyeachonam has charged mothers to always meditate on the words of God.
He gave the charge during a service to mark mother’s day at the church.
Speaking on the Topic “The Virtuous Woman”, the Reverend encouraged mothers to be humble and courageous while facing challenges of life.
The Anglican Clergy also charged them to emulate the biblical Mary and Ruth by distinguishing themselves from the cro.
