Mother’s Day

May 8, 2011

Here in the United States, the second Sunday in May is observed as “Mother’s Day”. This year it falls on May 8th, which is tomorrow. Therefore, in honour of this yearly observance I present to you these Biblical passages to remind us of the blessings and respect that God bestowed on the position of motherhood (taken from the King James Version):

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.

(God speaking in reference to Sarah, the wife of Abraham) And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations, kings of people shall be of her.

And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
