In addition to our 12 year wedding anniversary, we celebrated Mother’s day on May 12, 2013 and I wondered as to what the Bible has to say about “mothers”.
Psalm 27:10 states “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.”, affirming that the Lord God will never forsake us. Isaiah 49:15 questions “Can a woman forget her sucking child without any compassion on the son of her womb?” Such an act seems implausible though possible and yea even if a mother may forget her child, God says, I will not forget you, affirming that the Lord God will never forget us.
Points to ponder:
The LORD God will never forsake you, nor forget you and we can take solace in the fact that even if our own forsake and/or forget us, we will never be forsaken nor forgotten.
Psalm 27:10 (KJV)
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Isaiah 49:15 (KJV)
15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
