Your mother was a vine growing near a stream. There was plenty of water, so she was filled with branches and with lots of fruit. Ezekiel 19:10 (CEV)
By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
No matter how man may try to manipulate life; only a woman can mother a child in the way God intended.
In the scientific realm of obscurity stranger things have appeared. There are cloned animals with six legs, rats with intestines on the outside and even a chimpanzee that can use sign language to communicate.
But, none can marvel the effervescent and genuine spirit of a mother, free from hypocrisy or dishonesty.
One of the most bizarre abnormalities, for me, is the woman who underwent sexual reconstruction to become a figure of a man and then had an embryo implanted into her/his body and is now bringing a child into this world.
What happened to the sacredness and sanity of motherhood? Where is the honor of being a mother?
There have been great revolutions and a multitude of changes throughout time, but mothering has not deviated from its moral foundation and principles of training a child in the way he or she should go, and when they are older they will not part from it.
Yes, mothering is a cooperative venture between two; biblically speaking man and woman. I’m not trying to engage in any part of a politically correct or a selfish exchange for the sake of an argument; I’m talking about motherhood, nothing added and nothing taken away from it.
Those of us who were fortunate enough to embrace the warmth and security of our mother’s breast while feeding, will probably never lie in such greener pastures until we find ourselves in the presence of the Lord.
As a matter of fact, motherhood is rated right up there with being a saint.
When danger is imminent, most of us without a doubt trust that “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble”, yet we called mama first.
Before we were born she kept us inside of her, feeding us through her blood. We ate what she ate and as we grew older, she fed us before she would feed herself.
All she would ask of us is that we would: “Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”
A mother is so special that she would rather give up her own child to another if that would mean that her child would live. The king gave his decision: “Give the living baby to the first woman. Nobody is going to kill this baby. She is the real mother.” 1 Kings 3:27
Yes, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
And so will a mother risk her life for her children; in the face of death, in the perils of pure hell, she will not go quietly in the night. Your mother was a brave lioness who raised her cubs among lions. Ezekiel 19:2 (CEV)
Yes, I will always love my mama, she’s my favorite girl!
Happy Mother’s Day every day to ALL the REAL MOTHERS. You don’t have to give birth to be a mother; all you have to do is birth Godly life into others.
