MOTHER’S DAY – A DEVOTED MOTHER
We give God thanks for the gift of a devoted mother. There is nothing like a mother’s love. A devoted mother loves her children unconditionally, with a never-ending love. Whatever you do today, make sure you take the time to express your love to your mother. If your mother has gone home to glory, then take the time to thank God for the impact that she made on your life. If you are a mother, prayerfully, you have displayed the love of the Lord to your children. Never give up on them. Love them fully and completely. In John 19:26, we find these words:
“When Jesus saw his mother standing there beside the disciple he loved, he said to her, ‘Dear woman, here is your son.’”
Mary, the mother of Jesus, is at the foot of the cross. Her son is hanging there in excruciating pain, crucified for no sin of His own. The soldiers who crucified Him took His garment and threw dice for it. Mary watched all of this with a heavy heart. Jesus reached out to His mother, and told His beloved disciple, “Behold, your mother.” He made provisions for her because He recognized how she blessed Him. It is my fervent prayer today, that we will always have a heart for our mothers.
