2 Timothy 1 ESV
Guard the Deposit Entrusted to You
4(J) As I remember your tears,(K) I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. 5I am reminded of(L) your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and(M) your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 6For this reason I remind you(N) to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7for God gave us(O) a spirit not of fear but(P) of power and love and self-control.
Acts 16 ESV
Timothy Joins Paul and Silas
1Paul[a] came also to Derbe and to Lystra. A disciple was there, named(A) Timothy,(B) the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but his father was a Greek. 2He was well spoken of by(C) the brothers[b] at Lystra and Iconium. 3Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he(D) took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. 4As they went on their way through the cities, they delivered to them for observance(E) the decisions(F) that had been reached by(G) the apostles and elders who were in Jerusalem. 5(H) So the churches were strengthened in(I) the faith, and they increased in numbers(J) daily.
2 Timothy 3 ESV
All Scripture Is Breathed Out by God
14But as for you,(AB) continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom[a] you learned it 15and how(AC) from childhood you have been acquainted with(AD) the sacred writings,(AE) which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16(AF) All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17that(AG) the man of God[b] may be competent,(AH) equipped(AI) for every good work.
Philippians 2 ESV
Timothy and Epaphroditus
19I hope in the Lord Jesus(AR) to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you. 20For I have no one(AS) like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare. 21For they all(AT) seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. 22But you know Timothy’s[c](AU) proven worth, how(AV) as a son[d] with a father(AW) he has served with me in the gospel. 23I hope therefore to send him just as soon as I see how it will go with me, 24and(AX) I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also.

Where would any of us be without our mothers? To them we owe not only our lives, but the heritage they left for us to follow. For many, that heritage is a godly one, and those whose mothers gave such a heritage are blessed indeed.
