Children and Mothers are God’s Gifts of Love

May 15, 2017

One of the most precious relationships you will ever find is that of a mother and her child. We all have an idea of what a mother means to us, but the Bible helps us understand more about the wonderful relationship between mothers and their children.

Psalm 127:3

Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Children are God’s gifts of love; they are heaven’s generous reward. 

The day a child is born, so is the mother born into the start of her journey of motherhood. Children are gifts from God, they are the most precious blessing that parents can receive. Not every woman can give birth to a child, but every woman can be a mother. So if you are among those who can, it means that you are very blessed. Take that blessing and make the best out of it. Be a good mother and love your children as you love yourself. Give them everything they need and of all things, lead them to Jesus. Let them know that there’s a Savior who loves and cares for all of us.

Deuteronomy 5:16

Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. 

Every child is commanded by the Lord to honor his or her mother and father. And if we obey the Lord’s instruction, we will live longer in this world and the Lord will always on our side.

A mother is one of the most important people in your life. Make her feel that every day. She is the only person who understands you even if you’re not saying anything. She’s the one who gives you hope and strength. She is always on your side in your ups and downs. No matter what happens, she will never leave you.

Let’s love our mothers the best way we can and celebrate Mother’s Day with a grateful heart!
