How have almost all great men been made great? What is the answer? They have been made great by a godly mother.

What a tremendous asset a godly mother is. Wonderful gifts from the Lord are good mothers. Good mothers become great blessings to their husbands. Good mothers become great blessings to their families. What does it say in Proverbs 31:10? There we read: “A wife of noble character, who can find it? she is worth more than rubies.” And in Proverbs 31:12  it says: “She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.”

There are many notable women in the Bible. A profitable study is the study of the characteristics of the notable women. One of them is Hannah. She is the ideal mother and we find her story is First Samuel 1:20 and First Samuel 2:19. The husband of Hannah was Elkanah and she was the mother of Samuel.

AND HERE ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF HANNAH

We want to notice:

1.  her Prayerfulness: First Samuel 1:10,11 Please read her prayer in verse 11.

2.  her Self-denial: First Samuel 1:27,28 Read what she says to Eli.

3.  her Thankfulness: First Samuel 2:1-10 Her prayer again!

4.  her Industry and Maternal love: First Samuel 2:19 She supplied Samuel with clothing.

Wives and mothers do not need only a bit of appreciation and praise occasionally, on Mother’s Day, but a lot of appreciation and praise all 365 days of the year. Again a verse from Proverbs. In Proverbs 31:28 we are told: “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her: ‘Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.'”
