Five Key Connections for Mother’s Day

May 9, 2019

Here are some great passages from Christian articles around the web related to Mother’s Day. I hope you enjoy these quotes, and I encourage you to read the full articles!

This Mother’s Day, Don’t Worry (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

Your heavenly Father does not promise that the way will be easy, but he does promise that he will be with you all the way. He confronts you with your own inability. He warns you about where you set your heart. He invites you to trust your Heavenly Father. Are you ready to do that today?

5 Ways Motherhood Has Shaped My Walk with Christ (Katie Orr, LifeWay Voices)

…I had a tendency to silo my relationship with God into the one-hour time slot I had scheduled. That hour was awesome, but I treated it as if that was the only appropriate time to spend with God. I did not invite Him into the rest of my day. I didn’t pray much outside of that “quiet time.” The disruption of my “perfect” little God-appointment showed me that I lacked meeting with Him continually through each moment of my day.

The Prayers of a Faithful Daughter (Chelsea Stanley, Women Encouraged)

How do we do honor our moms when it’s hard? Only with God’s help. Honoring them may be difficult for us, but Christ is well-acquainted with honoring the dishonorable. While we were still dishonorable sinners, he died for us and raised us up with him to a place of honor (Romans 5:8Ephesians 2:6). It is by him, through him, and to him that we honor our moms.

How to Pray for Your Unborn Child (Gloria Furman, Crossway)

There is so much more to our mothering work than meets the eye. Our hope is not merely that our children would be fed, clothed, and educated, but our desire is that they would be nourished by God’s Word, clothed in the righteousness of Christ, and taught to fear the Lord.

Why Do Dying Men Call for “Mama?” (Russell Moore)

Even as Jesus’ disciples fled from him in shame, he could cite Psalm 22 while looking out from the cross at his mother. He could see in her an important part of his own personal story, a story that testified to the faithfulness and loving-kindness of God. In the moment of his greatest desolation, Jesus could see the invisible outline of God’s mercy and presence there in the one from whom, in his human nature, he learned to trust a fathering, nurturing God. The horror of the scene was not the whole story, the judgment of the Roman Empire was not the final word. He knew that since he was cradled in the arms of his mother.

Trusting God in a Troubled World

Followers of Jesus have hope in a troubled world. Paul describes it as “the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Another way of saying this would be eternal life: life that is not marred by the brokenness all of us know and are experiencing right now. The glory that followers of...
