Mother’s Day is a special time to honor and celebrate the invaluable role that mothers play in our lives. As Proverbs 31:25-26 says, “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.” This scripture beautifully encapsulates the essence of a godly mother — her strength, grace, and the wisdom that she imparts. These virtues make her not just a nurturer but also a pillar of guidance and inspiration in the household.


In the Bible, the importance of mothers is repeatedly emphasized through examples of nurturing and influential women. For instance, Mary, the mother of Jesus, exemplifies obedience and faithfulness. Luke 1:38 recounts her words, “ ‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May your word to me be fulfilled.’ ” Her readiness to serve God’s purpose, despite the challenges she faced, sets a profound example for all mothers on the virtues of faith, resilience, and unconditional love. It's these qualities that help shape the next generation, guiding them through life's complexities with a steady and wise hand.


On Mother’s Day, we are called to reflect on and appreciate the countless sacrifices made by mothers. Just as Ephesians 6:2-3 instructs, “ ‘Honor your father and mother’ — which is the first commandment with a promise — ‘so that it may go well with you and you may enjoy long life on the earth.’ ” This command reminds us of the respect and reverence we owe to our mothers. Their influence is profound and their love immeasurable. As we celebrate this day, let us acknowledge and give thanks for the myriad ways in which our mothers have shaped our lives, modeling the virtues of Proverbs 31 through their everyday actions and enduring love.


Now we know not every mom was a good one. That should not detour us from following God and praying for their salvation. Let us all strive to honor and serve the Lord God!
