In honour of your mum!

Sunday 8 May, 2011

Mother’s day… a wonderful day to pause and celebrate motherhood! Proverbs is filled with descriptions of the character of women and on the relationship between mother and child and it is this latter part that we will focus on today.

Proverbs 1:8-9 (MSG) says, “Pay close attention, friend, to what your father tells you; never forget what you learned at your mother’s knee. Wear their counsel like flowers in your hair, like rings on your fingers.”

Mums teach us so much through their self-sacrifice, love, words and actions. What has your mother taught you? Take some time today to thank your mum for all that she has done for you over the years and shower her with words of kindness.

We are also aware that for various reasons, not every person has fond memories of their mother. If this is you, our thoughts and prayers are with you today. Wherever you are in the journey of forgiveness, we pray that God would heal your heart and help you to forgive.

A Girl of Wisdom honours her mother and knows how to honour and show  her appreciation. Be creative and thoughtful in saying thank you to your mum today!
