Exhortation on Mother’s Day
I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
The love of our God is an unmatched love; it is incomparable. It triumphs human misery, it is comforting, it covers us with care, and it instills peace to his children. In our own lives, God has placed mothers to echo that love to her own children. The love of a Biblical mother is sacrificial. She will care for her own no matter what the dangers are. She will pick you up when you fall, she will calm your fears, she will speak words of wisdom, she is filled with strength, and she is the queen of her household. Not only because of that, but because God has placed such selfless love in our mothers, we are to honor them. We are to honor their beauty, their gentleness, their gifts, their labors, their undying commitment to their sons and daughters. Behold, in all our days, especially today, we are called to rise up and call her blessed. My dear sisters, Happy Mother’s Day!
Let us pray together: Our Lord, we thank you for our mothers, for they are more precious than jewels.
