Daily Bible Reading “Happy Mother’s Day” (Proverbs 31:10, 28)

Happy Mothers Day Card and FlowersHappy Mother’s Day

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31:28 says, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” I thought these verses were appropriate for Mother’s Day since it is a day to show honor and appreciation to our mothers for who they are and all they have done for us.

One of the greatest gifts that God gave us, besides the gift of salvation through His Son, is the gift of life and love through our mothers.

Mother’s Day is supposed to be a day of celebration, but for many people, it is a day of remembrance, a day of sadness. As you celebrate Mother’s Day with your family be sensitive to those whose mothers are no longer with them.

Mother’s Day may also be a time of grief for those who have lost children or those who want to have children but haven’t been blessed in that way.

There may be those who are estranged from their children or mothers for one reason or another and so Mother’s Day is sad for them.

Celebrate your mother and enjoy your family, but understand that days like Mother’s Day are hard for some people. Be gentle with them.

My emotions run from one extreme to the other on Mother’s Day and the days surrounding Mother’s Day. Missing my Mama, mother-in-law, and grandmothers are really hard for me since they have all passed away already.

Then there are the feelings of being really blessed to be married to the man God blessed me with as my husband, who loves me unconditionally. We are blessed to have two beautiful daughters, whom we love dearly. We wondered if we would ever have children. For many years Mother’s Day was hard for me because I wanted children so badly, but had not been blessed with them yet. We were married eight years and had two miscarriages before we finally had our girls.

We are also blessed to have five precious grandchildren who are all special in their own way.

If you were not blessed to be raised in a Christian home with a mother who loved you unconditionally, you can know this kind of love through the unconditional, sacrificial love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

All things considered, Mother’s Day is a good day to celebrate through all the laughter and tears. I am thankful for all the people God placed in my life to mold me and make me into the person I am today. I hope it’s a good day for you and your family. I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day. I love you. May God bless you!

 

Things to think about:

  • What is your best childhood memory of your mother?
  • What is one word that you would use to describe your mother?
  • What is the most important thing that your mother taught you?
  • What are you most grateful for concerning your mother?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for this day to honor the mothers in our lives. Help us to show our love and gratitude for our mothers. Comfort those who have lost their mothers with sweet memories today. We also ask that you comfort those who wish to be mothers, but haven’t been blessed with children yet. Thank you for the gift of children and grandchildren. Thank you for our mothers. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

 

In honor of Mother’s Day

Daily Bible Reading “God Is Love” (1 John 4:7-21)

God is love 1 John 4 8 God Is Love

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from 1 John 4:7-21. This Scripture talks about how we should love one another, because God loves us. If God is in us then we should have love dwelling in us, because God is love. Love is a fruit of the Spirit and if we are Christians we should have love through the Spirit of God. Those of us who have accepted Jesus as our Savior should have love in our hearts toward one another.

God loves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to this world to live and then die on the cross to cover our sins. If we believe and receive Jesus as our Savior, then love dwells in us, because we have the Spirit of God in us.

If you haven’t accepted God, who is love, and He is speaking to you, please seriously consider accepting Him into your heart and life today. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

1 John 4:7-21

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

 

Things to think about:

  • Who does the Scripture talk about when it says, “God dwelleth in him, and he in God?”
  • Why does the Scripture say, “Perfect love casts out fear?”
  • Why do we love God?
  • If we are Christians why should we have the love of God in us?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear God,

We thank You that You loved us so much You sent your Son, Jesus, to die for us. Help us to love one another the way You want us to. Help Your love to be perfected in us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. We love You, LORD. Amen.
