Trinity Daily Devotion
A Mother’s LoveDeacon Shelton SmithProverbs 31:26-28 NRSVShe opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her happy; her husband too, and he praises her.Beloved, if we’re honest with ourselves, at some point we have all been the type of child, that only a mother can love. A Mother’s love, is the one authentic earthly love, that mirrors the unconditional love of God. Mothers tend to love us despite us. Mothers love us, even when we don’t know how to love ourselves. The Bible teaches us how to love. We are to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.Brothers and sisters, our scripture tells us, when our mother opens her mouth, she not only speaks with wisdom, but she teaches with loving kindness.

Jesus is also a father to the Fatherless. Our God is so faithful, that God will become whomever we need God to be in our lives. Remember, God will never leave us, nor forsake us.

If you’re experiencing confusion, please know, God will grant you peace within the midst of your storm. If anxiety is settling into your spirit, please know, God will ease your mind and provide you with comfort. Beloved, our God and our mothers have many similarities. Our God and our mothers never fail to protect their children. Therefore, the next time life throws you a curve ball, if your earthly Mother is not here to intervene for you, it is God who will go to bat for you.Prayer:Heavenly Father, we need thee every hour. We look to the hills from whence Cometh our help because all of our help comes from the lord. In Jesus Name, Amen!Thought for the day:As a child of God, are you the child; that only your mother and God can love! ...
