Controlling mothers have been around since the dawn of time. I suspect they will be around for a long time to come. However, how we deal with them is entirely up to us!
This is a very touchy subject that can be seen at every level of society. Some women seem to want to control their children’s lives way after they have become adults. A lot of times these are single women who feel that they are entitled to something since they were mother and father to that son. In other cases these women belong to families with husband and all. Ladies may I submit that you take a page out of the book of the men (this is not to say that men are not involved). As I said this can be seen at every level of society but I want to touch on the women who are supposed to be Christians. Yes! you are the ones I want to speak to.
Do you believe that if you train up your sons in the way they should go then when it is time to pick a wife then they can make the best decision? Well if you have done a good job, I don’t see the need for you to want to choose the woman for your son. I have seen many men in church select a wife just to please their mothers, in order to end the fuss. I am not sure why there should even be a fuss in the first place since is the son who will have to live with that woman for the rest of his life. The only place you should be in the equation is to give wise counsel and pray for your son…..BUT the actual selection of that mate should be left to the man.
Now to you spineless men who allow your mothers to run rings around you. It is time to stop! It is time to stand up and choose the person who you are comfortable with. Remember that you will have to live with this person when mummy gone home. I understand that we would all like for everyone to love the person we want to marry but it is more important that we love and respect that person.
So as I said before….if you have trained up your son in the right way, teaching him to make the right decisions after seriously seeking God….then believe that he can make the right decision when the time comes to select a wife.
