It’s Mother’s Day! Show your momma some love!
Our jobs don’t stop on Mother’s Day, but it feels good to get some recognition for all that we do. While it’s nice to have some recognition, it’s also important to honor our own mothers and other mothers around us. It’s a sisterhood really. It sometimes involves you hitting your breaking point more times than you can count and still pushing forward because you love your children more than they know.
Now, I do want to say that you don’t have to give birth to a child to be a mother. If you are a stepmother, adopted mother, grandmother, or you just care for a child as a mother then this is your day too!
Here are some verses about mothers found in the bible for inspiration & recognition to all mothers and mother figures out there:
“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” … Proverbs 31:25-30
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12
“Listen to your father who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding. The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him. Let your father and mother be glad; let her who bore you rejoice.” Proverbs 23:22-25
“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her…” Proverbs 31:28
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127:3-5
