1 Kings 3:16-27
Only God has more love for children than a mother. You cannot be willfully wrong with your mother and be right with God.
Ways to Love Your Mother:
"Before I Was a Mom," author unknown
Before I was a mom, I made and ate hot meals. I had unstained clothing. I had quiet conversations on the phone with other adults. Before I was a mom, I brushed my hair and teeth every day, and I didn't worry about whether my plants were poisonous or not. Before I was a mom, I never held down a screaming child so the doctor could give him a shot in the arm. I never looked into teary eyes and cried myself. And a toothless grin never made me happy.
Before I was a mom, I never sat up all night just watching a child sleep. Before I was a mom, I never held a sleeping baby in my arms just because I didn't want to put her down. I never felt my heart break because I could not stop their hurt. Before I was a mom, I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I never knew that something so small could affect my whole being so much. I didn't know the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderfulness, or the satisfaction of being a mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much.
