Mother of Honorable Distinction: Lessons from Elizabeth by S. A. Foster is an inspiring Christian devotional centered on Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. It draws ten lessons from her life and begins with an introduction of who she was, as recorded in the Bible. The first lesson focuses on Elizabeth’s heritage. Similar to her husband Zechariah, Elizabeth was a descendant of Aaron. Foster explains that, like Elizabeth, we are recipients of a divine generational blessing since we are God’s children through our faith in Jesus. In the next chapter, the devotional focuses on Zechariah's and Elizabeth’s obedience to God. Other sections explore the challenges Elizabeth had to endure, her faith, and how she exemplified God’s perfect grace.
Mother of Honorable Distinction is a comprehensive study of Elizabeth and her role in God’s plan and fulfillment of a savior. It also explores other related topics such as living a life inspired by the presence of Christ, children as a source of joy and fulfillment of God’s purpose, finding our identity in God, and leaving an honorable legacy for our children. The devotional clearly states the lesson intended in each chapter and includes questions that can be used for reflection. A prayer is also included at the end of each section. I loved that the devotional focuses on one of the lesser-known but significant women in the Bible and draws many important lessons from her life that are applicable in everyday life. Mother of Honorable Distinction by S. A. Foster is an insightful devotional with powerful lessons for women and mothers.
