A woman can turn herself into a beggar just to get something to feed her child. A woman can turn herself into a slave for her slave master to feed her child. A woman can sell her house to send her child to school. A woman can stay in an abusive relationship for the sake of giving life to her child. A woman would rather feed her child and sleep on an empty stomach if the food was only enough for one person. She is a mother and you can count on her.
I want to believe that the love that a mother has for her child is not natural. It is divine. I believe that it is God Himself who planted that love within her heart to protect us. I believe that God loves us through our mothers also. There is no human that can love like mother unless God is working through and within her. This love has nothing to do with the nature of a person, whether one is Christian or not. If ever there is a woman who does not love her child in a manner that I have just explained then I blame it on the devil because love for a child is part of a woman’s nature according to the way in which God created a her.
What breaks my heart to pieces is what happens to her in the end. When the very people she sacrificed her life for grow up they leave her to fend for herself. What a pity. I see people spending money like there is no tomorrow when their mothers are struggling. People sacrifice their lives to please people who showed up in their lives when they had money already forgetting the ones who sacrificed their lives for them. Mothers. She is neither a slave nor a beggar. She is a mother. She is a queen. Let us treat her accordingly. Let no devil in hell divert your focus from doing that which is right. Treat your mother like a queen because she is a queen. No wonder why God in his word say the following.
Exodus 20, 12: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Bible (KJV)
1 Timothy 5, 8: But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Bible (KJV)
