THINK a minute.
In 1946, the United States Army showed to the public its brand new 30-ton computer called the ENIAC.
All the credit for this invention was given to two men, John Mauchly and J. Eckert. But it was actually a group of six women who programmed the computer and made this complex machine work.
None of those six women were recognized for their amazing work and achievement.
Not until today, have historians showed this injustice and given these women the credit they earned.
Sadly, throughout history women and mothers have often not been given the honor and recognition they deserve.
Yet the great French leader and conqueror, Napolean, said: “The future of a child is usually the work of the mother.”
And history proves it!
In fact, many of the greatest men and leaders of the world have proudly admitted that they became strong men because of their mothers’ teaching and example.
They were proud to be “mama’s boys!”
Some of these great men were American Presidents, including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, and we could go on and on.
George Washington, the first President of the United States said: “All that I am I owe to my mother…I credit all of my success in life to the moral and intellectual training I received from her.”
It’s clear throughout history that women and mothers are some of the most important, powerful people in the world.
Proving true the saying: “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
Jesus Christ Himself clearly showed that women are just as important to God as men.
So won’t you ask your Maker to help you see and value yourself the same way He does?
Then, whether you’re a woman or a man, ask Jesus to forgive and help you change so you will start showing honor and respect to your mother, or wife, by the way you treat her.
