He who mistreats his father and chases away his mother is a son who causes shame and brings reproach. (Proverbs 19:26)
Mother’s Day is for giving special honor and recognition to the one who bore us, tended to our needs, comforted our hurts, reassured our hopes and guided our growth to adulthood. Every day ought to be used to show your thanks, gratitude and honor to your mother for her devoted sacrifices and love – not only one day a year. Do not chase away your mother with a neglectful attitude, disrespectful words, ridicule, anger, contention or hate. These things are shameful ways to treat your mother. Remember, if you still have your mother, you will not have her in your life for long. Use your time wisely to honor your mother with respect, kindness and gratitude every day. And, always thank God for your mother.
