“Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.”
John 19:25-27 KJV
O how Jesus loved His mother. Even in the midst of all His pain, Jesus made sure His disciple would take care of His mother. O that you and I would follow the example of our Saviour and make sure that someone takes care of our mother if we aren’t able to do so. Not only does Jesus give us love, He is Love!
If our mother is no longer living, we need to find a mother who needs encouragement and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. There are many women who can’t have children or have lost children and they need us to adopt them in our heart. We need to call them, email them and pray for them.
We want someone to take care of our mother if we aren’t able to take care of her. We should be willing to take care of a mother who is lonely and hurting. If we would follow the example Jesus has set for us, not only by taking care of our mothers, but in everything that we do, we would make our Saviour happy.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every mother. I ask that You will please encourage them, comfort them and let them know how much You love them. May we be an encouragement to our mothers, not only on Mother’s Day, but on every day of the year. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
