Words of Life: A Tribute to Moms – May 5th 2022

Tribute to Moms
This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day. I am taken back to the book of Luke chapter 2, where it says, that Mary and Joseph marveled at what was said about their son, Jesus. Jesus was destined for greatness and the prophet Simeon who was righteous and devout, said that Jesus was destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel. His words were treasured by Mary because Mary was given a powerful message about Jesus before he was born. Mary was told by the angel Gabriel, that Jesus would be great and the Son of the Most High. Mary proceeded to accept this prophecy about Jesus and raised him up to be a man of God. She nurtured and encouraged Jesus in the things of God. She was a great example to Jesus and showed him love. We can all celebrate the wonderful example that Mary demonstrated to Jesus and show love to others. We can love like many mothers do time and time again. I so appreciate my mom and the care and kindness she extended to me and my sisters and brothers. To all Mothers everywhere: I salute you, I bless with the Savior’s Love, May you prosper and be a blessing to all that come your way! Happy Mother’s Day
