The Mother of Mothers

The Virgin Mary can easily be defined as the most appropriate role model for women. As a motherly figure, Mary exemplifies strength of godliness, strength, and maternal instinct. Mary portrays traits of holiness, piety, and humbleness. As a teacher, Mary instructs women on the importance of trust and perseverance.

The most obvious role Mary plays in the Bible is the motherly figure. One might consider her to be the mother of all mothers. She received this reputation because she is the mother of Jesus Christ. Women look up to her because she raised the perfect man. Another reason why Mary is considered to be the ultimate mother figure is because she was hand-chosen by God. Out of all the women in the world, he chose a common woman who lived in the little town of Nazareth. She wasn't a woman of great wealth or stature. God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus Christ because she possessed traits of holiness, piety, and humbleness.

As a role model to women, Mary teaches the importance of trusting in the Lord. Her faith in God was tested when an angel of the Lord informed her that she would miraculously give birth to the Savior. Most women wouldn't have shown the trust she did. Most women wouldn't have believed the message. Mary listened to the angel with acceptance. She knew God had a plan for her. In the present, women should have the same trust in the Lord that Mary did. God has a plan for us just like he had a plan for Mary. He would not deny his children any necessity.
