They say motherhood comes naturally. I believe that may be false. When I gave birth to my first son, I had no idea how to care for him. Three sons later, my parenting skills improved, and I attempted to teach my boys things they needed to know, like right from wrong, how to tie their shoes, how to ride a bike, and thousands of other useful life skills. I wanted them to be productive and capable.
They also need to know the truth. Not the truth of the world which changes every season, but the truth of the One True God. The truth that never changes.
Proverbs 22:6, instructs parents, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” (NIV). This verse reminds us to teach our sons truth, and point them toward the things that matter. And when they grow to be husbands and fathers, they will know how to stay on the right path.
Here 10 ten truths sons need to hear from their mothers.
