Helping women realize their God-given calling and purpose as moms

Motivate

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works” Hebrews 10:23-24 NLT.

Do you motivate others to love and good deeds?

I know sometimes as a mom, partly because I have so many children, and partly because of my personality, I can go into drill sergeant mode with the tasks I am instructing them to do.  I have a value of things being done quickly and with excellence. I tend to have high expectations.  So though my intentions are good (like let’s have a clean house), my mode of operation is all wrong… Have you ever had this attitude, “I’m in charge here, obey me NOW!”

Well, if you have found yourself becoming a sergeant rather than a dad or mom, you know that it will not truly motivate your children to LOVE and good works. They may accomplish the work, but your relationship has not been strengthened. No wonder all children love Mary Poppins who magically makes the room neat and uses sugar to help the medicine go down.

Take a fresh look today on ways that you can Motivate your family to acts of love and good works.
