VERSES ABOUT MOTHERS
A mother is a female person, who is pregnant with or gives birth to a child. It is used as a form of address for such a woman; so on and so forth. As bible says; a mother holds a special place in our hearts. If it is not for her none of us could be here in physical form. A mother is very important to us, in fact she has the bigger responsibility, starting from carrying the baby inside her womb up to nine months.
A mother is first celebrated by Adam because she is the mother of all living. A mother is our breath and our life. The great responsibility of a mother according to the bible is “to teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” They should be willing to put God first, to teach to their children the word of God, to be a good example to their children for their children will imitate them. We should be very thankful to our mother, because without them we cannot become the expression of His image here on Earth and she risk all to give us breath and life for us to have a chance to live on Earth. Below are some lists of verses about mothers.
