“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will find favor and good name in the sight of God and man” (Proverbs 3:3-4 NIV)
Since my Mom is 82, I have been her daughter for 56 years! As a youngster, I put my faith in my Mom because I knew she loved me. Our bond started early even before I was born; when Mom was pregnant, she took care of herself for me. After I was born, she provided me with my needs and wants. As I grew to become a teenager and young adult; it was through her actions she continued to love me. Our bond is everlasting!
God’s love is also unconditional. God’s faithfulness reminds us He never changes. Every day God provides us with love, mercy and grace.
Growing up there were times when my desire was not always to please and obey my Mom. But, with her unconditional love, followed (eventually) was my understanding. Furthermore, I am not always faithful to God. However, God is always able to let me know that He is there; He is reliable; He loves me. Like Mom, God wants the best for me and loves me no matter what.
Mom, I love you! Praise the Lord!
Our Heavenly Father, thank you for making your love known to me. Thank you for giving me the right person to be my Mom. Forgive me for the times when my actions and attitudes are not always loyal and responsible. Thank you for being loving and faithful which allows me to live with hope.
Help us to love and honour our Moms and love and honour You.
For Your glory. Amen.
