M is for the Many things she gave me
O means only that she is growing Old
T is for the Tears she shed to save me
H is for her Heart of purest gold
E is for her Eyes with love light shining
R means Right and Right she’ll always be

Put them all together, they spell MOTHER
A word that means the world to me.       (written in early 1900s)

The Bible speaks a lot of how we should treat our mothers (and fathers!).  Honouring our mothers is pleasing to God and there are many verses telling us to do so.

The is the first commandment with a promise ..

If you honour your father & mother .. things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on earth”,  Eph 6:3

Jesus loved and honoured His mother .. he made provision for her while He was on the Cross.

God created families and gave the mother a unique place in that unit.  Mothers love, give of themselves, cook, clean, wash, put Band-Aids on scapes, be first up in the morning or last one down at night.  They juggle a lot of things including raising children, working outside the home, managing a home, trying to find a little time for themselves..

All mothers – biological, adoptive, foster – are where God wants them to be and they are Jesus’ face and hands to their children.  Give God thanks for your mother today.
