When we first consider the premise of motherhood we are hearing a call. A call from God.
The Word says in Ephesians 4: 10-12
“He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…”
Do these not describe the MOTHER…She plants (the apostle), tending life; she goes before her children in wisdom, knowing them, (the prophet); she sings their praises and rises there crestfallen spirits, (the evangelist); she guides them in the ways of God and life, (the pastor); and she instructs her children for life (the teacher).
So I say to you, those who believe today to be a Hallmark invention….
Honor your Mother…no matter your faith… no matter your belief…
It was her answer to the call that first sparked life eternal in your heart…
It is she who is the key to that life eternal, here on this earth…
If not for your mother,sweet child…where, then, would you be?
To be a mother is a woman’s greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation’s citizens.
The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.
– David 0. McKay
And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more often than not anonymously, handed on the creative spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never hoped to see — or like a sealed letter they could not plainly read.
– Alice Walker
Motherhood is the greatest potential influence in human society. Her caress first awakens in the child a sense of security; her kiss the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world. Thus in infancy and childhood she implants ever-directing and restraining influences that remain through life.
Happy Mother’s Day to all …Blessings ♥
