They bring wisdom, strength, and encouragement into our lives, and their unconditional love reflects God’s love for us.
Moms are a special gift from God. They bring wisdom, strength, and encouragement into our lives, and their unconditional love reflects God’s love for us. As Mother’s Day approaches, let’s look at three ways we can bless the amazing moms in our lives.
“Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” (Proverbs 31:28 NLT).
Words have the power to bless, uplift, and heal hearts. Even if words of affirmation aren’t your natural inclination, take this opportunity to express your gratitude for your mom. Tell her you love her! Let her know how much she means to you, and thank her for the sacrifices she’s made.
“She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue” (Proverbs 31:26 NIV).
When your mom speaks, listen to her. Give her your undivided attention. Not only will she appreciate being heard, but you will benefit too! Your mom has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She has likely been through many of the same struggles and challenges that you will face, and her wisdom can help you navigate life’s challenges, make wise decisions, and avoid costly mistakes.
Finding Your Identity in Marriage and Motherhood
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you” (Exodus 20:12 NKJB).
Like most people these days, you probably have a busy life. Time is a precious commodity, and one of the greatest ways to honor your mom is to spend some time serving her. This can be anything from helping her fix things around the house to running errands for her to planning a special outing for just the two of you. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make your mom feel like royalty. Your time and attention will make her feel like a queen!
