Bible or Not wishes all mothers a Happy Mother’s Day! Where would we be without our mothers? The love and protection a mother affords her children goes beyond understanding, and is so indomitable, that it is the measuring stick for the greatest love you could find. Even in the animal kingdom we talk about the fierceness of the “momma bear” that will go to any length to protect her cubs. For those of us who have experienced the love of a mother, we can only say thanks.
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” – Isaiah 49:15 NIV
Unfortunately we know from the Bible, and from watching the news, that there are those in this world who have not experienced that kind of love. As great as the love of a mother may be, there are times in our fallen world when it breaks down. But there is an unfailing love from God that is there for everyone. His love is so great that he will NEVER forget, leave or forsake His children.
Today we honor YOU, our mothers who have loved us, have raised us, and have made us who we are today. We thank God for you and pray that He blesses you.
But let’s not forget the orphans and those whose lives have been difficult, who have not felt the love of a mother or father. Let’s reach out to them to let them know that there is a God in heaven who loves them more than they can imagine.
