This Mother’s Day, let’s give thanks for the blessing of wonderful mothers. Here are 9 Bible verses to celebrate them on their special day.

 

Proverbs 31: 25-31

“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom  and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.”

Proverbs 22:6

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

“Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and reject not your mother’s teaching; for they are a fair garland for your head, and pendants for your neck.”

Psalm 139:13

“For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

“Lo, sons are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”
