“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels…Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her”
Proverbs 31:10, 28
It is time for home made cards, art projects, flowers, back rubs, because Mother’s Day is here. Each year on the second Sunday of May we thank our Moms for being who God made them to be. As I read this proverb about the value of a Mom, it makes me think of the old MasterCard commercials. What is the value of a good Mom? Priceless. Good Moms are hard to come by; they change lives, mold children, and improve the life of a whole family in more ways than you can put into words. The passage even compares her to precious jewels, something that few people could ever afford.
It made me wonder, do we take for granted the value of a good mom? Yes we might take care of her on Mother’s Day and bring her breakfast in bed, but what about the rest of the year? This year, make sure to affirm your Mom on Mother’s Day for all she has done for you, but take it a step further, and keep affirming her all year round. Because as the proverb reminds us, an excellent Mom is worth more than precious jewels. Make sure your Mom knows that she means so much to you everyday, not just Mother’s Day.
- What is one way that your Mom is worth more than precious jewels?
- How might you continue to affirm her throughout the year?
