Mother's Day

From Pastor Miguel...            translated from Spanish by Pam Bridgehouse

Mother’s Day

     Mother’s Day was first celebrated in the United States in 1905 on the second Sunday in May. Each holiday has its own history, but this is not surprising because mothers have a super important place in the life of every son and daughter in the United states and all round the world.

This has its value not only as a commemorative or cultural holiday.  It also has, and perhaps more importantly, a religious value, and although God did not establish it as a date to be celebrated, He established it as a commandment to continue from generation to generation.  he said it like this:  “Honor your father and your mother so you may enjoy a long life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:12)

God is not a participant in the rebellion and lack of attention of children toward their parents and on this occasion we speak of the mothers who do all that is within their reach and more, always for the good of their dearly loved children.

Through the Holy Scriptures, we find wonderful stories of exemplary mothers who did surprising things to care for and protect their children.  For example, in Exodus 2 we have the marvelous story of the mother of Moses and what she did to save his live from the evils of that time. In 1 Samuel 1 and 2 we have another story of a sterile mother who prayed and received the blessing of God that changed her life and filled her house with happiness. The mother and grandmother of Timothy were super important in his life (2 Timothy 1:5) Everyone knows about Mary the mother of Jesus who was there to the very last day at the foot of the cross.  Proverbs 23:22 says “Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.”

No matter how old you are, if your mother is alive, it means that the one who cared for you from the day you were born still loves you and you will never stop being her child

Prayer:  Thank You, Father, for giving me a mother to care for me.
