Jesus told His disciples, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them. For such is the kingdom of God. Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will not enter it at all” (Mark 10:13-15).
We are doing kingdom work. We are receiving the children God has for us. We are humble queens to our families as we serve them, train them, and pray for them.
Our children will not be little forever. Our days of being queen of our homes with little ones underfoot will someday come to an end. But when that time comes, we will not stop being queens.
I will be a queen for the rest of my life. YOU will be a queen for the rest of your life.
Our kingdoms will grow as our little ones grow. Our territories will enlarge as they venture out into this world. Those of us who are faithful in little will be made faithful in much.
Life on earth is short! Eternity is long. Our time of training here on earth as mothers is training for reigning in eternity.
Rejoice, dear mothers, in the good work of motherhood God has called you to. You are not JUST a mother. You are not JUST a wife. You are queen of your home and of your family. You are impacting generations to come. You are making a difference not only in your home but also in the nations—for eternity!
