Mother’s Day is a Reflection of God’s Love to humanity.
A mother is the first person that a baby bonds with and totally depends on for the sustaining of his/her’s life. It is this precious devotion of unquestionable love imparted into a mother and baby. The mother first giving of her life and body to sustain the life of her unseen baby held within the arms of her womb. As the mother breathes the baby breathes as the mother eats the baby eats. The baby, totally and unknowingly shielded, protected and nourished by its mother. The baby has yet to meet her yet he trusts in the unseen, untouched mother who was created to love and nourish him. JUST LIKE WE DO WITH GOD…
An unseen bond that cannot be duplicated my man’s manipulation of science to create a womb outside the body of a woman. It is a job that only a woman can do. The womb is a gift from God for the aspectual of humanity and the aspectual of His plan for humanity. A plan carefully laid out by God because of His Love…. This was done in love, by love for love because God is Love.
1 John 4:16
Amplified Bible (AMP)
And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.
We have all heard throughout the years the Woman of Proverbs 31:10, a mother of virtue, honor, creditability, honesty, business and etc.
Amplified Bible (AMP) A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman—who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls.
A virtual super woman, but what was her motivation in the creation of success that surrounded her? We know that she had passion, but yet there was no conflict, animosity in her home.
Amplified Bible (AMP) She comforts, encourages, and does him only good as long as there is life within her.
What did she move in? What was the inspiration of her passion?… Love… she did it for love. Why because she was in love with love. Here is a key verse:
Amplified Bible (AMP) She rises while it is yet night and gets [spiritual] food for her household and assigns her maids their tasks.
She arose early to get instruction and guidance from God the source of all love. She sought for others and in turn gained strength for her self. This made her strong and capable for fulfilling her purpose and destiny in life.
Proverbs 31:17 & 18
Amplified Bible (AMP) She girds herself with strength [spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given task] and makes her arms strong and firm.
18 She tastes and sees that her gain from work [with and for God] is good; her lamp goes not out, but it burns on continually through the night [of trouble, privation, or sorrow, warning away fear, doubt, and distrust].
Her virtue is seen through her love. Love is where and how her character and integrity was forged. Out of the bowls of tenderness you find her pursuits of happiness through unfeigned love and mercy to her family and loved ones. Her transformation of service and kindness brought about through the selfless sacrifice of unconditional love for the sake of love. She does this so, that none of her household lacks. This joy of love sustains and fills her core so that she can give even more through words of sound Godly Wisdom. She is known by her works that show froth her love, of God, of family and humanity, she has become LOVE. She is in service to them all as a ‘servant.’
Amplified Bible (AMP) Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!
26 She opens her mouth in skillful and godly Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness [giving counsel and instruction].
27 She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied); and her husband boasts of and praises her, [saying],
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, nobly, and well [with the strength of character that is steadfast in goodness], but you excel them all.
30 Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates [of the city]!
IS LOVE THE GOD GIVEN PLAN FOR US ALL?…. Something for you to think about. In this relationship we see how her sacrificial love reflects the Love that God for us. In John 3:16 God sent his Son as an expression of His Love wherewith He Loved us all.
GOD IS LOVE, LOVE CONQUERS ALL
