Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. I have a son and a daughter. I love both of my children very much. I have always loved being a mother. I have many wonderful memories of doing things with my children – rocking them to sleep, reading to them, fixing special meals for them and teaching them about Jesus.
Mothers take care of their children when they are sick, feed them, clothe them, bathe them, and take them places they need to go. But God gave mothers a job that is more important than all of these jobs. God wants mothers to teach their children about Him and His Son, Jesus.
My mother read Bible stories to me. She helped me learn Bible memory verses. But most of all, she showed me about God through her actions. She is like the woman in our Bible Reading today: “…a woman who respects the Lord should be praised” (verse 30b).
Take time today to thank God for Christian mothers.
