LOIS AND EUNICE
2 Timothy 1:5; 3:14-17)
We applaud the women who are single and raising children on their own.
I have always imagined how difficult a task single parenting must be, knowing that you have no one to help share the workload of raising children. Timothy, was raised by his mother Lois and grandmother Eunice, two remarkable women who taught him love and the fear the Lord.
Whether you are single or not, parenting comes with its challenges. that's why it is always good to teach children God's principles from an early age. The bible says that we should train up a child in the way they should go and they will never depart from their ways.
The gurus of the world love to tell us how we should be raising our children, but God has given us his ways on parenting. Lois and Eunice followed God's way and raised Timothy to be a fine young man who loved the Lord.
He later became a student of the Apostle Paul.
