I’m not sure there is a more deserved holiday than Mother’s Day. They’re not perfect, but most I know are a huge blessing to their family. Moms teach us so much by the lives they live, the sacrifices they make, and the love they lavish upon us. I would like to share three things we can all learn from great moms.
#1: Family Matters. The greatest moms I know keep their family together. They do more than just cook and clean. Moms understand their first priority is their family. Events are planned for fellowship. Moments are created for unity. Moms are known for doing a better job than most in keeping in touch with their loved ones. For them, family is not just a part of life, but it’s what makes life worth living.
#2: Faith Is Critical. Most moms feel like lone rangers as they seek to raise their children. Unfortunately, many dads are missing in action, even if they do live in the home. Moms teach us that faith is critical. It’s what keeps you going when you feel like falling apart. It’s what helps you see beyond where things are to where only God can take you. It must be the centerpiece for anyone who plans to succeed in this life.
#3: Love Is More Than A Feeling. Thank God most moms don’t operate based on how they feel. If so, they would have quit a long time ago. A great mom knows that true love is never conditional. That love can’t be based on feelings alone, but must be fueled by a sincere, unwavering commitment. Moms show us how to love when things don’t make sense, don’t feel great, and even when love is not deserved. For this reason, a mother’s love is unforgettable because it reflects the love God has for each of us.
I could share so many things that great moms teach us. These three things just top the list in my heart. If your mom taught you these valuable life lessons and more make sure you thank her and God. I bet your life would not be the same without her love, faith, and commitment.
