We Love and Respect All Mothers Among Us

This upcoming Sunday is Mother’s Day. While this is a holiday that’s not prescribed by Scripture or even centuries of church tradition, it’s a worthwhile holiday to celebrate. Why? Because mothers are a gift from the Lord. They’re whose instruction children should heed as they grow up (Prov. 6:20). They’re the ones who carried each of us within their very wombs. Their love is a picture of God’s gentle and compassionate love for us (Isaiah 66:13).

This applies to all mothers with young children. Mothers with grown children. Mothers who grieve over the children they’ve lost in utero or outside the womb. Even future mothers. Ladies, we respect you, love you and thank God for you.
