Scripture provides us with an excellent description of a good wife and mother. She is someone who loves her husband and children and always considers their needs before her own. She makes sure that they have what they need – that they are feed and clothed and have a place to rest.
10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. 11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. 14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. 15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. 16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. 19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. 20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. 22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. 24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Being a mother is a blessing from God. It is one of the most important jobs in the world. If you are a Mom today, you are truly blessed.
1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him.
A mother should always remember the things that God has done and never let them fade from her heart. She must teach her children and her grandchildren about how nothing is impossible with God on your side.
9 Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.
Even when Jesus was hanging on the cross, he took the time to address his Mother and to make sure that she was taken care of after He was gone.
25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
I was at the doctor’s office today with my wife and met a mother who had come in because of a broken foot. She shared with me about her son-in-law who needed prayer because a blood clot caused him to be paralyzed from his neck down. She was more concerned for him than for herself. This is an example of a mother’s love. Please remember Nathan in your prayers as well as this dear mother.
If your mother and/or the mother of your children are still with you this Mother’s day, please take time to love and honor them. Let them know that you appreciate everything that they have done for you and/or your children. Show them that you love them and be thankful to God that He gave them to you.
