“Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2-3)
God, in His infinite wisdom, chose who your Mother would be before conception. While it is true, Mothers may not always live up to His best intentions, as they are free to choose their behavior, but His choice is right, none the less.
By the same token, He chose the children the Mother would have. They, too, may not always live up to His best intentions, but His choice is right, none the less. He gave a command to the children parents are blessed with: “Honor your father and mother.”
A word to children and mothers who are still living, though something has driven a wedge between you in relationship to one another; do whatever you can to heal your relationship before one or the other passes. You do not want to live with deep regrets. “Love does not fail.” — Happy Mother’s Day to all!
