There is absolutely no human way to put an adequate value on motherhood. Proverbs 31:10, 28 says it all – “Her price is far above rubies….Her children arise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her.”
Sunday, May 12 is Mother’s Day. For those whose mothers are no longer with us as well as for those who are still fortunate enough to have their mother, it should be a day of reflection, gratitude, appreciation, recognition and lots of love.
Other than God himself, there is no other being in the world that has your best interest at heart like your mother. Someone said, “Mother is the heartbeat in the home; and without her, there seems to be no heart throb.” The thoughts of Abraham Lincoln about his mother could possibly be our thoughts, “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
There is a priceless Jewish Proverb that is worthy of our reflection: “A mother understands what a child does not say.” No one can read you like a devoted mother. A good mother sees right through you, perceives your moods, thrills with your success, grieves with your failures, loves and accepts you in all circumstances.
We are delighted to observe Mother’s Day when we gather for worship next Sunday. We hope that you can be present and that members of your family can join you as we reflect on the influence and inspiration that a Mother brings to our lives.
In His Love,
