20 May 2 Timothy 1: 7

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

One of the most important things Timothy displayed was unselfish love. Where is that seen more than in the lives of our mothers? Unselfish love seeks the highest good for the other person. Another thing is self-control. It is important to teach our children to set wise parameters and say, “Now, that’s it!” Consistency is when the discipline of self-control is balanced with love and tenderness. Pray.
