Charles Spurgeon once wrote, “I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn words of my good mother.” Countless people today could say the same thing, and today’s the day to express extra gratitude.
Reflect on honoring mothers, the value of mothers, and a mothers’ love with these 11 Bible verses for Mother’s Day.
“Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.
As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you.
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.
1 Corinthians 13:4–7
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Honor your mom today! And if you’re a mom yourself, be encouraged. Your love and service don’t go unnoticed. Even if others don’t praise you, your works will.
