What is meant by spiritual mothers? Their main characteristic is women who listen to and obey God. Spiritual mothers nurture godly characteristics in lives of their spiritual daughters. They have wisdom, courage and love to correct spiritual daughters with Scriptures.
The aged women, likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers and teachers of good things that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste [not chase], keepers at home, good and obedient to their own husband that the word of God be not blasphemed. (Titus 2:3-5)
I was asked why do I “Hang Out” with older women. The mature aged women have a wealth of history, knowledge, wisdom and genuine love who willingly share with me. We talk, laugh and enjoy being with one another. Sister Dickerson and Sister Copeland are truly Titus 2 women.
I sometimes quietly sit when we are together to absorb the wisdom flowing from their lips. Their clothing, behavior, speech and even their body language make a statement of modesty and holiness. There is no doubt about who they profess to be, and I believe their journey has God’s approval. “Go in peace. Your journey has the LORD’s approval” (Judges 18:6).
There is so much more I can say about these two beautiful women of God. They are encouragers and prayer warriors to the Woods family as we continue as “one” for the “ONE” who sacrificed His Son’s life for the remission of our sin. Wives of ministers need women like these two in our lives.
Sister Copeland and Sister Dickerson thank you very much for all you do. We love you and if our biological mothers were alive, they would be please you two women of God are in the Woods family life.
