A Mom’s Mothering

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 8, 2011

“Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, ‘Dear woman, here is your son,’ and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home” (John 19:25-27).

Moms are magnificent, especially the ones placed in my life by the Lord. My mom, and the mother of our children in particular, are emissaries of encouragement.  They’re messengers of comfort and care. No one loves more unconditionally than mothers. They see only the good and forget the bad. A mother’s love extends way beyond what is required, and becomes a reservoir of hope.

Furthermore, moms are not afraid to speak the truth, laced with an attractive attitude. It is not unusual for a mom to become their child’s best friend. This is a natural outcome to their acceptance and relentless relational efforts. Because their emotional IQ is high, they are able to almost instantly discern and remedy heartfelt needs. Indeed, they are compulsive givers with a propensity to out-serve everyone.

Lord, this outlandish outpouring of love concerns me. It doesn’t bother me that they love so generously. What troubles me is their need for unconditional love. Are moms being mothered to the extent that their own needs are being met? An un-mothered mom is a good candidate to be a miserable mom. If they are not receiving what they need in emotional and spiritual support they whither under the pressure. Like a flower in an arid climate, they need the moist love, nurture, and security of the their Savior Jesus.

Lastly, they value being valued, and desire acceptance. They are secure living in security, and long to be loved. Lord, lead me to model this for my mom and the mother of our children. Show me how to shower on them what they have rained upon relationships season after season in unselfish service. I want to give back to them in the same way they have given to me and our children. I long for the Lord to bless moms!

“Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her…” (Proverbs 31:28).

How can I love on my mom or another mom who needs encouraging?

  1. I am the business owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to develop my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance ! I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if someone could suggest a reliable website where I can purchase Vape Shop International Sales Leads I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
